Slow News Day



The Sun newspaper reports that a satellite orbiting Mars has now spotted what looks suspiciously like a big smiley face drawn crudely onto the surface of the red planet.

Disconcertingly reminiscent of the "acid house" faces worn by late-eighties ravers, the vast visage stares out from a crater, beaming a wonky-faced message of goodwill out in to the solar system.

Reminiscent of Frank Millars watchmen ?

I read "Watchmen" years ago.

Zack Snyder - who directed 300 - is making a movie of it at the moment.
