A Cosmic Practical Joke
I'd have to contact my old boss at ATK Space about this one and see if NASA would be so inclined, but for the next unmanned space probe going to Mars or on a deep space mission, I have a special request for the payload in addition to the probe.

A ceramic teapot with the inscription "In Loving Memory of Bertrand Arthur William Russell."

Place it in orbit around Mars or into an elliptical orbit around the sun.

Now you could prove there really WAS a teapot orbiting Mars.

The overly religious are gonna fuck up the details hundred years from now on that though.

They fuck everything else up, so why not this?

It'll just add layers of complexity to the gag. They'll say something stupid like that, never appreciating the irony that humans had to make the teapot for it to exist, not too dissimilar for a certain ill tempered daddy in the sky figure they fight with such venom to preserve.
