Q: A star accidentally collides with a black hole. What does the black hole say to the star?

A: Sir, I don’t think you appreciate the gravity of the situation.

This man certainly appreciated the gravity of the situation

A black hole is a region of space from which nothing, not even light, can escape due to the near-infinite strength of its gravitational pull.

So, when our star accidentally crossed paths with the black hole, its light was absorbed by the gravitational pull of the black hole. The word “gravity” also means “seriousness.” Hence, the black hole, taking the reasonable assumption that the star wasn’t aware that it had just collided into a black hole, was kind enough to inform the star that it did not appreciate the gravity of the situation, i.e. the star was about to die, due to, well, gravity.

So, remember, gravity always wins. Even against Google.
