There aren’t many cafes or restaurants in outer space so astronauts stop off for a bite to eat on honeymoons – moons made of runny honey. Earth has one moon, but some planets have over 30 – yum ! yum !. Only Mercury and Venus do not have any moons so the honey bee astronauts in space know not to stop off there. Men have walked on the surface of honeymoons – but if they get too close to the sun and the toffee melts – then their boots get stuck and their feet covered in muddy chocolate. There are many other things that moons can be made from – cream cheese, sponge and custard, bread and butter, for instance. Honeymoons are made by romantic bees – their craters and honeycomb, sweet and runny in the middle, with sugary coated mountains, topped with jellies and chocolate meteorite pieces. Honeymoons have sticky nut brittle toffee rocks all over them. Sometimes comets (or dirty snowballs of ice lollies and sugary dust) revolve around the Sun in long orbits. When they approach the Sun they heat up, leaving a trail of gas behind them, which looks like a tail. Saturn’s moons are covered in red, yellow and orange sherbert dust, with rings made from candy floss. Moons are like toasted coconut macaroons – crunchy and crispy on one side – or flat pancakes. Moons are like fried eggs in a frying pan sky of mint sweet stars or syrupy treacle, with meteorites made of mushy marshmallow. Mars’ moons are made of mashed potato, topped in cheese, grilled by the sun’s rays, with strips of bacon and a lick of mustard. Moons may be fit for a banquet – with rockets ready to take off into outer space. Moons are crumpets – dripping in melted butter – when hot, they’re tasty and lovely to eat. Honeymoons have satellite bees flying all around them, spinnng in orbit and getting their wings stuck on their sticky surface. Honey bee astronauts study recipe books using telescope to see the different honeymoons – you can just spot Pluto on the horizon against a liquorice sky and the sugary rings of Saturn, with honey bee meteorites flying by.
