Iran is testing out liquid fuelled rockets using stolen Gibraltar monkeys it is claimed. "The monkeys are being smuggled out in large cigarette boxes" said the military commander of Gibraltar.
"Our monkeys are very clever and could easily be trained to explore space if brainwashed by the Iranian ICBM scientists. They are the very devil for stealing crisps and spectacles though, so Werner Von Khalid had better watch out when they are crammed into the capsule", said a Space Animal rights group spokesmonkey yesterday.
It was spotted by the media earlier this year that a different Iranian monkey had landed to that which had taken off in the first rocket, fuelling rumours that the Iranians are giving the monkeys to Aliens in return for atomic secrets.
"The returning monkeys are robots obviously, you can buy them at ToyzRus." said a Chinese restaurant owner yesterday.
