(Washington DC)-- Astronomer Richard C. Hogland announced he's discovered an 'ass' on Mars. Mr. Hogland is best known for discovering the 'Face on Mars' many years ago. He noted the ass is exactly 180 degrees from the Cydonia plain, where the Face is located. The astronomer discussed the latest findings on the radio show 'Kook To Kook AM With George Nerdy' last night.
Richard C. Hogland described the ass for George and the audience.
"The Ass is exactly proportional to the Face on Mars. It is a nicely shaped pair of buns, definitely male. It looks like the guy must have worked out a lot. Not that I'm gay or anything." he added.
The 'ass' was imaged by both the Mars Voyeur Probe and the Mars Latent Observer late in 2008. It is located on a mostly mountainous region of the Red Planet. Most scientists would consider it a butte, not a butt.
"Oh, it's gotta be an ass!" said the excited Richard C. Hogland. "You can see a bunch of turds all over the place. The turds aren't boulders. It's too much of a coincidence."
Mr. Hogland hopes astronauts will land by the Ass on the first manned trip to Mars.
"It would be great to just walk up to it and touch it. Not that I'm gay or anything." he quickly added again.
