Geez. Why not the finger rock so we could see if it bleeds...

Yes I am only kidding. But I agree with the OP. I can't wait to see what they come up with and also wonder why they didn't pick something a tad different.

The rock, called N165 has its own Twitter account. Here is what it twittered:

N165 aka Coronation@N165Mars So much going on around here lately - the most excitement I've had in millions of years! But I'm glad it's back to normal now.

N165 aka Coronation@N165Mars The big metal creature was scary at first, with the rockets and noise, but I'm sure it's just curious. Maybe I should say hello!

N165 aka Coronation@N165Mars Oh, I think I've got the big metal creature's attention now -- it's looking right at me! Maybe it does want to be friends!

N165 aka Coronation@N165Mars Come on, guys, I know you're just fooling. What are the chances? Out of all the rocks on Mars, a killer robot would pick me? Haha!

N165 aka Coronation@N165Mars My new robot friend really does have quite a steady, intimidating stare. I guess it's a cultural thing.

N165 aka Coronation@N165Mars Um, @MarsCuriosity, what are you.... hey! ... HEY!

N165 aka Coronation@N165Mars OW OW OW! STOP IT!

N165 aka Coronation@N165Mars HELP!

N165 aka Coronation@N165Mars I think part of me is missing.

I must say it brought a huge smile on my face when I read it.
You can find the whole thing here.

gotto run. Will give a more serious comment later

Nasa's Curiosity rover has zapped its first Martian rock.

The robot fired its ChemCam laser at a tennis-ball-sized stone lying about 2.5m away on the ground.

The brief but powerful burst of light from the instrument vapourised the surface of the rock, revealing details of its basic chemistry.

And so, the First volley in the Terran/Mars war takes place.............
