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.

    The Fracking Fables of Groggery Gibbonman

    ‘Toad coin?’ wondered the traveler as he examined the pebble. It did not look all that different from any other pebble, and certainly nothing like a coin. ‘What manner of coin has no head or tail, and bears no seal or flag? Who backs this toad coin, the toad bank? The toad treasury!?’ The traveler laughed, but the toads croaked sternly back at him.

    Your Dog is Totally Worth Refrigerated Food

    Spending $10-15 a day on perishable organic dog food is not a sign of a decadent culture in terminal decline, it's actually real good and worth it.
