It's got a cop Alpha Particle X-ray Spectrometer, a 440 cubic inch radioisotope thermoelectric generator, it's got six cop wheels, cop rocker-bogie suspension, cop heat rejection system. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on nuclear energy.

We'll be all right if we can just get back on Aeolus Palus.

They're not gonna catch us. We're on a mission from NASA

Clever. Still... anybody with that kind of record is gonna make a mistake. I want all Martians in the Gale Crater district to monitor the city, county and state enforcers on their telecommunicators. Sooner or later Mr. Curiosity is gonna fark up, and when he does... he better pray the enforcers get to him before we do.

Hit it.

Use of unnecessary violence in the apprehension of the Mars Rover Curiosity has been approved.

Exciting and a little sexy.

I mean, for a robot.

But does it have S.C.M.O.D.S.?

Orange whip?

Orange whip?

Three orange whips!


you see, because Mars soil is orange and "whip" is slang for a vehicle for some reason

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.
Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can."

Rover did transmit that when it woke up this mornin' it heard a disturbin' sound.
 
2013-07-09 09:51:23 AM  
What's this?
What?
The old rover! Where's Spirit?
The what?
The rover we used to have.
I traded it.
You traded Spirit for this?
No, for a microphone.
A microphone?
Okay I can see that.
 
2013-07-09 09:54:12 AM  
Wheres the caddie?
 
2013-07-09 09:58:01 AM  
How often does the rover go by?

So often that you won't even notice it.
 
2013-07-09 10:04:34 AM  
"Uhhh, NASA, it looks like some angry guys are chasing us in Winnebago."
 
2013-07-09 10:04:35 AM  
And in the end, Curiosity will find that the Mt Sharp is actually Steven Spielberg.

The jingle jangle of a thousand lost Martian souls?

Gonna be difficult getting the band back together.  It is Mars after all.

Martians like both kinds of music; Country and Western!

This means something.

And if the mission fails, I can just hear the excuses now:  "I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts! IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!"

Threads like this are why I love farkers.

Did anyone else try the quiz. I only got 50%, slightly ashamed of myself.

and it's going to make the inevitable car chase less exciting.

Did you kick the tires?  And I hope you stayed away from the undercoat rustproofing option.  That's a scam.

The subway stops at Mt. Sharp.
 
2013-07-09 12:33:35 PM  
To remove a buildup of Martian dust on the rover, they send it a command to modulate your x-y positioning of the aft aerodynamic directional stabilizer "shake your tail feather".
 
2013-07-09 12:34:49 PM  
You gonna stop us, Curiosity? Ha. You're gonna look pretty funny tryin' to sample rocks with no farkin' drill bits!
 
2013-07-09 12:43:02 PM  
The quiz on that site is ridiculous.  I dare any of you to pass it.
