The universe, which was recently reported to be suffering from a bad case of planetoids, just got a little bit slimmer. Revised calculations indicate the universe contains less normal and dark matter than previously thought, resulting in a "weight loss" of 10 to 20 percent.

When approached for comment on it's recent slimming-down, the Universe attributed much of its success to the well known, and very popular, Atkins Diet that restricts carbohydrates, along with some basic "lifestyle" changes.

"...I'm trying to get a little more exercise - you know, working out and junk. I also try to throw a few less solar systems down my black hole, Heh heh. But overall, I feel good."
