KRISPY Kreme doughnuts are weird because they come from Mars, it has emerged.
A NASA Mars Rover photographed a doughnut-like object that appeared to grow out of the planet’s surface.
Doughnut chain Krispy Kreme has since confirmed this is how all its products are made, which explains unearthly flavours like chocolate dreamcake and lemon meringue pie.
A spokesman said: “Our doughnuts are semi-organic sickly lifeforms harvested from the desolate Martian plains.
“The first Martian doughnut was discover by the Rover spirit in 2004. It was secretly shipped back to Earth where attempts to communicate with it failed.
“Its lurid icing-like carapace encouraged one stereotype ‘greedy person’ technician to take a bite.
“He reported that it was very, very sweet but that he felt strangely compelled to eat a dozen at a time.”
Krispy Kreme fan Mary Fisher said: “That explains why if I leave a half-empty box of Krispy Kreme overnight it has moved across the living room by the morning.
“I knew there was some intelligence at work there.
“Can they feel pain? I hope not but you know, whatever.”
