"Oh great... now Mars even has more water than Los Angeles."

NASA on Monday announced there is likely flowing water on the surface of Mars, and as soon as most people were done marveling at the news, they pointed at California and laughed. 

Scientists at NASA believe they have confirmed that water intermittently flows on the surface of the red planet, which could mean that life once existed there or possibly still does exist. 

Social media came alive with people speculating about what this could mean for the age old question: "Are we alone in the universe?"

After that moment of wonder passed, it was time to stick it to California, which is experiencing a record-breaking drought. 

Even celebrities took jabs.

Non-celebrities also had some pretty good one-liners at California's expense. 


Of course, there were some good jokes that didn't take a shot at the Golden State.
