NASA Crash Vehicle Filled with Turtles

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA - A two-ton rocket stage that crashed into a moon crater contained forty-two turtles, placed there by scientists. "We don't know why or for what purpose," said NASA spokesperson, Adrian Brumar. "The scientists stated it had something to do with finding water on the moon." Instruments from a second vehicle crashing nearby indicated no sign of the turtles. "We're guessing they didn't survive," said Brumar, who believes scientists often use technical jargon to justify doing odd things. "The scientists want to try it again with frogs, but we're asking them to write out 'why.' I don't think they have a mature answer. But I'm just a spokesperson." (Photo:

Of course they should use frogs instead of turtles. When the rocket is about to crash, they can jump up in the air and survive the crash. For crying out loud, they are scientists and should know these things.
