The US space agency NASA scrapped Monday a planned historic spacewalk by two women astronauts, citing a lack of available spacesuits that would fit them at the International Space Station.

Overheard: "From this portal Uranus looks huge."

I think it was because the shoes and the purse did not match. I'm a girl don't judge me.

OK. Some lady will say it. "A man must have been in charge of the suits....a woman would have NEVER made that mistake." There I said it.

"OK, hon, the good news is, you're up for the space walk. The bad news is, all we have left are XXX suits. Wait, get away from me with that wrench. (lost contact)..."

" Does this suit make my... Yes ? Don't just float away. Answer me. "

Of course. Those two outfits looks exactly the same!

Oh, the suit fit. The thought of being seen wearing the same outfit as the other astronaut was too dreadful.

It is rumored that the two women astronauts canceled the spacewalk after getting into a heated argument about whether or not to dance the tango or a waltz in space.

Uh, they could have argued over the spelling of waltz.

Does it come in any other colors? Everybody knows you don't wear white until after Memorial Day.

Would two day delivery cost less than about $125,000,000?

Not my usual...

From some snooty fashion webpage:

"Fashion is split into four seasons.
These seasons are Spring/Summer, Fall/Winter, Resort and Pre-Fall.
The two major seasons, however, are Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. Spring/Summer starts in January and runs until around June, and Fall/Winter goes from July to December."

So it's obvious the only available space suits were Fall/Winter space suits.
