CNN – NASA’s rover Curiosity successfully carried out a highly challenging landing on Mars early Monday, transmitting images back to Earth after traveling hundreds of millions of miles through space in order to explore the Red Planet.
Curiosity? We named our Mars-bound space rover Curiosity? The fuck is that about? Curiosity sounds like the username of a closet bi-sexual posting on the casual encounters section of Craigslist, not a spaceship about to slang space rocks on the Red Planet. Just isn’t the proper way to announce your presence to an inter-galactic space party. You can’t mess around when you’re cruising around the Milky Way, you have to cause a little chaos. Have to step into the room like you own the place and let everyone know you’re there. Get aliens turning their heads and paying some attention. How about something with a little more swag, a little more panache? Like “Where All The White Martian Women At!” or “Knock knock, bitches!”, or “C.R.E.A.M.” with big dollar signs and a 9mm graffitied all over it. Anything but Curiosity. Anything. C’mon NASA, step your game up.
