On Wednesday night’s edition of “The Colbert Report,” host Stephen Colbert presented a segment called “Tiny Triumphs,” in which he celebrated the fact that the Mars rover is now drawing penises on the face of the planet, meaning that America is now treating the Earth’s nearest planetary neighbor like a passed-out frat boy.
“Humanity has accomplished so much over the years,” Colbert began. “We’ve split the atom. We’ve mapped the human genome. We even put pizza on a bagel. Now we can have pizza anytime.”
Our next great frontier, he said, is Mars. Humans began to send probes and exploration satellites to the planet in the 1970s. Most recently has been the Curiosity rover, which has been driving over the planet in search of signs of life.
With its eight wheels, the Curiosity has “left humanity’s mark” on the planet, Colbert said proudly.
“We drew a penis!” he said.
“This giant graffiti peenie proves our galactic supremacy,” he went on to say. “America took a pristine planet, 140 million miles away and scribbled on it, like it was the face of a passed-out frat boy.”

Mars Rover 'Draws' Penis On Red Planet & NASA Picture Goes Viral (PHOTO, VIDEO)
NASA's high-tech Curiosity rover may be getting a little cheeky over there on Mars.
In a photo of Curiosity's track patterns, published on the robotics section of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory site, the Mars rover appears to have traced out a very phallic design on the Red Planet's dusty surface.
The rover's picture went viral after being posted to Reddit's r/funny subreddit page Tuesday, earning close to 40,000 "upvotes" in a matter of a few hours. According to The Huffington Post UK, NASA's website crashed due to increased traffic as word of the "drawing" spread.
The car-sized rover landed on Mars last August with a mandate to explore the planet and analyze whether or not Mars could have supported life forms. Curiosity is controlled by a team of NASA engineers, who send two sets of instructions to the exploratory craft each day, according to
Some of the tracks made by Curiosity's six wheels can be seen from space and were documented by the HiRise camera of NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in January.
