ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Thanks, Kate Davis!
It took 90 seconds from historic event to doctored photos this time.
which is in itself a bit of a historic event
I always wondered how creatures smart enough to travel vast interplanetary differences couldn’t tell the difference between a cow and a telephone.
“Meeep! Meeep! – Is that thing even on?”
Yep yep yep yep yep yep… NO. NO. NO.
I hope there are no cats in Mars or NASA is going to get DDOSed really bad.

I was F5-ing the NASA “First Images from Mars” page just after Curiosity landed. The tiny 64×64 thumbnails suddenly appeared at the instant they were received. That was rad.
I must not have been the only person doing that, because within less then a minute, there was nothing on that page, even as more images came in.
Brings to mind the Opportunity Bunny
You know how they found out?
Telephone. Yip yip yip yip…. Brrrrring!
Yip yip yip yip…
