First the word was that the "discovered" rock looked like a jelly doughnut. Read the story at the San Jose Mercury News: "Jelly doughnut" rock on Mars suddenly appears
That's old news, as NASA is now reporting that further investigation has revealed that the so-called rock isn't a rock at all. It actually IS a doughnut -- a very, very old one. A jelly doughnut, probably from Dunkin' Donuts, since a tattered Dunkin' Donuts box was discovered nearby.
Folks planning a trip to Mars in the near future are quite excited. "I didn't know that Dunkin' Donuts delivered there," said space-traveler-to-be Porky Peter, patting his fat belly, continuing, "this is fabulous news."
And a just-completed telephone survey indicates that the jelly doughnut announcement has caused 42% more Americans to want to travel to Mars.
Wow! Jelly doughnuts rock.
