Well they have a Wiki page.
From whence a lot of the NASA caption text was plagiarised.

"Real or imaginary - or NASA's little joke?"

I have seen images of these things before too. If its a Nasa joke, its a long running one.

I don't know which I'm more stunned by - tha 61 year old Bonnie Tyler is singing the UK's eurovision song this year, or that it was written by Tony Iommi!!!!

Just realised I've got that wrong - Bonnie's song isn't the one wot Tony wrote. Apologies.

I had the hots for Bonnie Tyler when I was a young man.

She had more hair then, than I have had altogether in my whole life.

And a fine pair of lungs too.

Just saying.

Oh look, it's that fine upstanding politician in the news again - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-21796157

"MP Eric Joyce has been arrested after police were called to reports of a fight in a bar at the Houses of Parliament."

Wiki was quick -

" A year later, on 14 March 2013, Joyce was again arrested following reports of a fight in a Westminster Palace bar where he was witnessed wearing a Jester's hat and shouting "I am the goblin king" before headbutting a man."

Reminds me of many years ago when Scottish football fans used to come down to Wembley for the England Scotland game. They'd all end up in the fountain in Trafalgar Square
