So which galaxy is the coolest, the nameless three-armed galaxy behind M101 or NGC 986 which appears to fire a string of background galaxies from its bar?
Three-armed man. Hey Mister, didn't anyone tell you you should stop smoking?
I vote for the three-armed man - I mean, I vote for the three-armed galaxy - myself!
