Space is perhaps the biggest collection of mysteries this side of a "Murder, She Wrote" marathon. Among space's chief exports are asteroids, planets, meteorites, Supermen, wormholes, and the Theremin. Space, as crazy black jazz musician Sun Ra observed, "is the place." In celebration of space and the recent triumph of landing a robot on Mars, we're bringing you a very special Photoshop Phriday. By special I of course mean retarded, but I certainly hope you wouldn't be foolish enough to expect anything more or less from us. The topic this week is "It Came From Outer Space," which is a slightly misleading theme name given that the goal was to Photoshop actual space pictures from NASA and other space agencies. Everyone seemed to mistake it for a general sci-fi hoedown, and you know how those things go. In spite of the problems, we have our usual helping of quality laughs from the Forum Goons, as well as a number of images that will probably either confuse you or give you a headache. And because everybody has been harassing me to bring back the page of shame, I kind of did. Enjoy, space cadets!

Poochie navigated Mars in his backyard. He navigated Uranus in his bedroom.

NoteToSelf: write a caption for this image.

AndrewTaylor is filling Mars' atmosphere with toxins.

Kanzune is doing something here. Maybe cleaning up AOL CDs. I don't know. I'm a conscientious objector.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
