Mars farts, Earth on edge

"Pull my finger."

In the science department, the Washington Post and other papers are reporting that scientists detected an eruption of methane on Mars and have interpreted it as a "sign of life."

Funny, my wife used the same words when she detected an eruption of methane from me after I had fallen asleep in front of the TV.

In an informal poll, all the Earth men I spoke to thought the news from Mars was terribly funny. The Earth women? Not so much.
