Local hippies are always going around collecting old grease from the fryolators of fast food restaurants to power their outer space rocket ships, which they've converted from local abandoned amusement park rides. And then the lobstermen come ashore and rage against the hippies, using their lobster rage fists.

Was the french fry thing a potato joke?  Boo subby boo.
A Maine rocket site would weld jet engines to a 4-wheeler and launch from a huge ramp.  The pilot would need to drink a six pack of Gary's prior to launch, and be back by 1PM for their shift at Hannafords.  The governor will raise the turnpike speed limit from 70mph to escape velocity to support the program and tourism.  Maine will have its own orbiting space station with LL Bean space gear, and they will conduct experiments on moose, ticks, and lobster in zero gravity in preparation for a Mars mission, only to discover the Quebecoise are already there.  Tabernac.

The lobster fishermen could have beaten the whalers to the moon.

But now they'll just sit singing a lobster trap tune.

This is one of those baffling headlines where I try to figure out what the article is by the comments alone. I'm guessing some Silicon Valley tech bro is proposing to build a spaceport on the Maine coast, and the locals are angry about it?

Hey I was close. They're not angry about it so much as the regulations for building a freaking spaceport in Bumblefark, Maine haven't yet been adequately established.

Also, the name "Harry Fish" sounds made up.

Brunswick is in the Portland suburbs, so it isn't exactly Bumblefark. That would be Jackman, Presque Isle, Millinocket, or Madawaska. Brunswick also gets swelled up during tourist season with all of the snow birds coming up for summer.

The turnpike speed is now 70, so at least we got that. I would have figured the pilot would be downing Allen's Coffee Brandy or Fireballs prior to getting in. The pilot also needs salami italian for a sack lunch.

On the way over, they have to stop at Marden's to see if they had a deal on parts. After Marden's, go to at Reny's just in case they have something that Marden's didn't have.

They should have bought it when they saw it.

There are these little spaceports popping up in various locations. Most of them are going to fail, because there aren't enough launches to go around.

Well, those are certainly words in that headline, in some approximation of a sentence.

Their industry is dying, and they refuse to open up a new one in their backyard?
