In which the President calls the NASA'S Mars Science Laboratory "Curiosity" Rover Team, and calls out Mohawk Guy
THE PRESIDENT: Your hard work is now paying dividends, because our expectation is that “Curiosity” is going to be telling us things that we did not know before and laying the groundwork for an even more audacious undertaking in the future, and that’s a human mission to the Red Planet.
I understand there’s a special Mohawk Guy that’s working on the mission. He’s been one of the many stars of the show last Sunday night. And I, in the past, thought about getting a mohawk myself—but my team keeps on discouraging me. And now that he’s received marriage proposals and thousands of new Twitter followers, I think that I’m going to go back to my team and see if it makes sense.
DR. ELACHI: That’s going to be the new fashion at JPL.
THE PRESIDENT: It does sound like NASA has come a long way from the white shirt, black dark-rimmed glasses and the pocket protectors. You guys are a little cooler than you used to be.
I Like Big Mohawks and I Cannot Lie
I like big mohawks and I cannot lie
You other science geeks can’t deny
That when a dude walks in
With his stars shaved in
And his hair up like a fin
You go SQUEE
Wanna watch it again
All those scientists hugging their friends
Cuz that hawk rocks fun defiance
But what we’re excited about is SCIENCE.
Oh NASA, we wanna work with ya
And see your grainy pictures
My laptop tried to warn me, but
That YouTube video’s making my
You say you wanna explore the scree?
Well go, bot! Go, bot! Cuz you ain’t an average robot!
I’ve seen that red sand
So let’s give them a hand
They sweat, they fret, they keep launching those turbo jets
I’m tired of magazines
Saying scientists are boring
I saw the black and white landing on the moon
But seeing Mars with a mohawk is making me swoon.
So tumblr (yeah!) tumblr (yeah!)
Do you like Bobak’s mohawk? (hell yeah!)
Then meme it! Meme it! Meme that pink mohawk!
It’s science with a hawk!
