NASA discovers face of Cookie Monster on surface of Mercury

Proving once more that cookies are the food of the universe, NASA has released the above image of what it claims is an impact basin abutted by two smaller craters on the surface of Mercury, but what even the organization itself admits resembles the face of Cookie Monster, casting a ravenous, sidelong glance at that delicious sun-shaped cookie in the sky. "Me plunge Earth into eternal darkness, om nom nom."

Of course, besides being concocted by the government to suggest that even the solar system is shaming Mitt Ronney, by just looking at the photo we know that this NASA conspiracy is designed to conceal The Truth: that Yip Yip aliens are real and they are watching us. Hide your everyday appliances. [via BuzzFeed]
