Typepad Import Image

With the economy melting down and Heath Ledger dying, I nearly missed this photo, which apparently has been shooting around the Internet. Have you seen it? This unlikely report says it was taken on Mars by the Spirit Rover, which has been prowling around the Red Planet for a while. Lots of people think it’s a female alien. Others think it’s a rock. I’m suspecting some photo manipulation.
