(Newser) – The United States has its problems, but Stephen Colbert thinks that NASA's latest feat clearly shows America's cosmic might—that feat being an image of a penis left on Mars. The Internet erupted after a photo of the seemingly phallic track patterns the Curiosity rover left in the red planet's sands was posted to Reddit on Tuesday. "This giant graffiti peenie proves our galactic supremacy," Colbert said on last night's show. "America took a pristine planet, 140 million miles away and scribbled on it, like it was the face of a passed-out frat boy."

"So I want to salute NASA for once again inspiring a generation," concluded Colbert. "Somewhere in America there's a little boy looking up at the stars and thinking, 'One day I'm going to grow up and live my dream—drawing a big ol' pair of titties on Neptune.'"

Just don't think this guy is funny on any level. Tried to watch him his humor is for the folks who IQ brings down the average he's no Dennis Miller or Robin Williams.

NASA's rover tracks on Mars' surface will blow away one of these days the next time it gets one of its famous planet-wide dust storms. I'm surprised at the luck of these landers this last decade, not getting engulfed in at least one of those huge dust storms. NASA is running on luck, it's just a matter of time till the next one comes & then look out, covered in sand & dust they will be, probably stuck & on borrowed time till their power runs out & they go silent. Like one of these guys science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2001/ast11oct_2/ Yeah, you send peoples up there to try to colonize Mars, eventually they going to have to deal with that kind of storm. Nasty.
