The chances of anything coming from Mars…

Chris: ha! latest news from the phoenix lander on the soil samples…

Chris: “Sam Kounaves, the lead investigator for the wet chemistry laboratory on Phoenix, told journalists: ‘It is the type of soil you would probably have in your back yard, you know, alkaline. You might be able to grow asparagus in it really well. … It is very exciting for us.'”

Chris: why… asparagus??

jsr: Maybe he likes asparagus?

Chris: that’s not possible.

jsr: Maybe he knows something we don’t! … Something … about asparagus!

Chris: haha “all earthly asparagus is actually a dumb decendent of the master race asparagus on mars.”

jsr: That’s why we see them traditionally as little and green.
jsr: And now they turn their attention to Earth. And they see our asparagus roll-ups. And they are ANGRY.


  1. I thought asparagus liked it a little sandy?

  2. maybe that would explain why they tend to arrive in cylinders….

  3. Now I’m craving asparagus

  4. It’s because growing asparagus takes a NASA sort of time-frame.

    Or! They’re preparing to use asparagus growing as a front for something else. “We’re just growing asparagus, honestly officer. No, don’t look back there…”

  5. I always thought there was something suspicious about asparagus rolls

  6. Mmm green phallic things… WHY were you two talking about green phallic things?

  7. Would you say that they would turn up in… a mob?

    An … asparagus mob?
