Space Madness

Astronaut Don Pettit has come down with Space Madness, and has begun blogging as a zucchini.

January 5, 2012

I sprouted, thrust into this world without anyone consulting me. I am not one of the beautiful; I am not one that by any other name instills flutters in the human heart. I am the kind that makes little kids gag at the dinner table thus being sent to bed without their desert. I am utilitarian, hearty vegetative matter that can thrive under harsh conditions. I am zucchini - and I am in space.

    Don later went on from that achievement to shill for Rovio.
