Hello Mike:

Sorry, it is 6:00 am and I have not had my coffee yet. I read the original
article and I assume that they meant thud, not thurd (could not find that
word). However, I am assuming they did not mean, as you wrote, turd. This
seems to relate more to ice meteorites and flying cows (if this is lost to
our non-English speaking members, please contact me for a clarification).
