Dead Comet Sketch

Yesterday evening we were all Monty Python Dead Comet Sketch over ISON. It was pining for the Oort, this comet had ceased to be, it was no longer trailing up the blazes…etc etc

But, this morning, I wake to hear news that this comet has actually ceased to not be.

Will this be the most viewed animated gif of Black Friday once the US wakes from its turkey-induced tryptophan coma (#deceivedwisdom by the way) that they refer to generously as Thanksgiving?

More on what we might expect from comet ISON via NASA and SpaceWeather.
