A June 3 image from NASA’s Messenger probe shows a scene in Mercury’s southern hemisphere, northwest of Magritte Crater. Three overlapping craters form the head and ears of a “Mickey Mouse” shape.

    The Cosmic Vagina has already been found, but the photo has not been divulged to the public…

    NASA is on the lookout for the Cosmic Penis, as part of its Cosmic Disaster Preparedness Office. Cosmic Ejaculations have been found all over the cosmos, and these are suspected of wiping out whole Solar Systems, and giving birth to new ones…

    Attention Blog Owner. Please remove the image of Mickey Mouse from your website as you are in breach of copyright law.

    I didn’t see Mickey Mouse in the picture. I saw a baby reaching for a big black ball.

      Not me, I saw the juxtaposition of overlapping non-concentric circles representing man’s inhumanity to man and his life long struggle to live while all along denying his inevitable demise.

    Does this “prior use” of the art by the planet Mercury, invalidate Disney’s copyright? Can you copyright a natural feature, like a mountain or crater? Oh I’m sure Disney will claim it didn’t know that Mercury thought of it first. But ignorance of the law doesn’t count. Give it up, Disney. You’ve been bested by a planet’s pock marks.
