Kirstie Alley's Body Saves World

Thursday, March 4, 2010 16:16 GMT

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Kirstie Alley’s recent weight-loss may save the world from impending doom.

According to Corey Deitz, author The 2012 Guide Book featuring silly end-of-the-world scenarios, it’s possible that Doomsday could be triggered by the “spontaneous combustion” of Kirstie Alley and other fatties.

Luckily, Alley just dropped 20 pounds, so she’s no longer an imminent threat.

Deitz applauds the actress for “taking the first step in lessening the danger” of the Apocalypse.

If she keeps losing weight and other chubby folks follow suit, we may be able to avert disaster in 2012 – at least from sudden explosions.

But there are plenty of other dangers lurking.

Deitz says the world could end at the hands of killer penguins who’ll “turn on each other and us” once the ice caps start melting.

He also thinks there’s a chance “evil space aliens” will use mind control on baristas and bloggers at Starbucks to take over the world.
