Squirrels Are From Mars…

It came to my attention yesterday that there has been a major uproar over a photo squirrelsinnewsreleased by the Curiosity Rover that we sent to the planet Mars with tax money that might have been better spent building a gigantic tornado shelter under the state of Oklahoma.  A close up of the photo appears above, and it doesn’t take a whole lot of imagination to see what looks to be some kind of low riding rodent crawling along the red surface of the fourth rock from the sun.  Is this proof of life on other planets?

Sure it is… for the naive and people who love to believe conspiracy theories (a Venn diagram with a lot of intersecting space).  But of course, it is also a boon for wastes of bandwidth like The Nest, which looks for any excuse it can find to post a silly story with a rodentine twist…

Finding earthly objects in pictures of the Martian landscape NASA is all too kind to share with us has kind of been a national pastime.  We’ve already found a face…

And most of those interpretations were pretty sketchy anyway.  The Mars rodent actually looks like a rodent!  And really, most children of the 90’s already knew that there were rodents on the planet Mars anyway…

The title for this series came from a crazy game of Mad Libs.

So we here at The Nest would like to celebrate this incredible find of furry life on the red planet, which confirms what we long thought that rodents can live just about anywhere.  Perhaps in the not too distant future, we will be able to breed these extraterrestrial rats, and Martian hamsters will be available as pets here on earth.  Your kids will be the envy of the block with their Unidentified Furry Object… at least until we discover that there are ponies on Venus…

Awwww, too cute!!!

    I’m actually from Mars, and that is my pet Scruffy. He found the idea of water disgusting and decided to stay behind. It’s good to see he’s alright!!!

  3. Now I understand why ES is standing on the moon with his space helmet off. Squirrels obviously don’t need them!
