NASA's picture of Ultima Thule triggers hilarious memes on Twitter; check here
Some users commented that it resembled chicken nugget, while to some it appeared like pancakes and for yet others it was a pitta bread.
Based on fuzzy images obtained earlier, the scientists had said that Ultima Thule resembled a bowling pin, however, the new images - taken from as close as 27,000 kilometres on approach - revealed Ultima Thule as resembling a snowman.
Now, the flyby is a historic achievement, but the netizens could not help poking fun at the shape of the object. Hours after the image was shared by NASA on the micro-blogging website Twitter, a series of jokes and memes erupted. Some users commented that it resembled chicken nugget, while to some it appeared like pancakes stuck together and for others it was a pitta bread.
