You can't help but laugh - This has to be the ultimate 'dumbed down'
press release, I'm gonna frame it!!
Hey why not Dumb it down even further :
"The little rover has tincy little wheels (round things) that's why it
went slippy slippy kins down the teeny weeeny bank. The rovers brain
hurt so it had to have a little sunbathe until it recovered then it woke
up with a little yawn and trundled all the way up how clever it is!"=20
Come back Foxy Loxy all is forgiven! :)
