Planet 75

It was a windy day in Northern Alberta. Who knows what it was like in
New York City? In New York, everyone believes they’re at the center of the
universe. Around the universe, many have read stories about the crash in
Roswell, New Mexico, but very few have even heard of New York. Out on
Planet 75, the Big Apple is three hundred feet tall and tasty as chocolate.
