Mars Rover Captures Image Of Spoon-Shaped Rock

A new pictures from the Mars Curiosity Rover has some thinking martians have good dining etiquette.

An image taken on August 30 by the rover's Mastcam shows what looks like a spoon hovering over the Red planet.

We've seen plenty of strangeness on that martian surface: from crab monsters, to pyramids, even a thigh bone — that make us believe in extraterrestrial life — or rocks.

And NASA has already cleared up this latest find, saying, "There is no spoon. This weird Mars feature is likely a ventifact — a rock shaped by wind."

Wind? Or Steve Martin?
