Houston, TX-- The Curiosity rover exploring Mars has spotted something completely unexpected. The rover spotted a bong standing up on a rock with a little bit of gray smoke coming out of it and something burning in the bowl. Scientists at the Johnson Space Center are still trying to explain it.
"I guess martians are stoners!" exclaimed astronomer Dr. Karl Saygun. "Maybe the Face On Mars likes to smoke weed." he added. The famed astronomer then lit up a joint and took a few good hits.
The Curiosity rover took a zoom lens photo of the bong, pictured on the right. It also sniffed the martian air and it did a chemical analysis. The Curiosity rover then did a curious thing. It stopped working and began playing music instead.
"The little Curiosity rover thingy is stoned." stated Dr. Saygun. "Must of inhaled too much of that Martian Devil Killer Weed. Wish I had some." he said wistfully as he lit another joint.
Later on the NASA scientists did a more complete analysis of the Bong On Mars. They said it wasn't really a bong, but just a trick of shadow and light. They told the public to ignore it.
"There's nothing there. Trust us." said Dr. Saygun. "If you believe in the Bong On Mars you must be stoned!"
