NASA's rover draws a penis on mars

Postby alessandro95 » Thu Apr 25, 2013 12:28 pm UTC

Image

This photo was published on the NASA website and noticed by a reddit user, who didn't lose time and posted it on reddit itself, needless to say the image showing how NASA drew a penis on mars spread pretty quickly across internet, resulting in an increase of traffic on the NASA website that has been enough to take it down.

I didn't found any truly reliable source but this story seems to be true, I posted it just because it made me smile, between all this serious/sad news.

p.s.
guys stop thinking about a permanent colony on mars, we already did everything that was worth doing on this planet.

No we didn't! We haven't even set up a permanent colony yet!

Mars has wind, right? We need a permanent colony to draw dicks when the old ones blow away.

You have a point there.

Also because this rover isn't exactly Van Gogh, as you can see in the picture the drawing is pretty sloppy, humans would do a better job for sure (or maybe NASA should invest more money on an high-quality-dick-drawing robot)

Now is that a (high-quality)-(dick-drawing) robot, or a (high-quality-dick)-drawing robot? Or perhaps a high-(quality-dick-drawing) robot?

I can see it now... a host of beings from Mars arrives to complain that after all the complex fractals they've drawn on our wheat fields around the world, we show up on their planet and draw a giant dick.

Maybe those fractals are what martian dicks look like? :)

Better yet... Martian counter invasion... massive alien robots invades earth and draws their reproductive organs on major earth cities and important landmarks.

I think we have just seen the future of warfare. Instead of shooting enemy soldiers and dropping bombs, wars will be won by drawing penises on enemy territory. Action movies will be made about terrorists spay painting wangs on the White House.

I guess that makes the the space between Mars and Uranus the solar system's taint.

Well, if it's true that girth is more important than length, surely fractal penises must be wildly popular with the ladies. ;)

This makes a good argument for sending artists to space.
