“I can’t work today. There’s a huge ball of fire emitting deadly radiation” (joke)

An employment joke has been printed on many images:
   
Employee: I can’t work today. There’s a huge ball of fire emitting deadly radiation.
Boss: You can’t skip work today because it’s sunny.

 
The joke was posted on Twitter by James Breakwell, Exploding Unicorn on April 1, 2014. Authorship is uncertain; the joke possibly originated on an image.
