I should say not, young lady!

That'll cause a UFO scare when it launches.

Ben, I never know what to comment on, your fine comic or your flying saucers.

I know, it's confusing!

Unfortunately for the Falcon HTV-2, today's test flight terminated unexpectedly after nine minutes of data recording--just like the *first* test flight last year, actually. HMMM.
