BT has today announced the installation of the first Wi-Fi point on the moon.
At a cost of just under £3½ billion, BT have installed their first lunar Wi-Fi point by the Sea of Tranquility, next to the proposed site of the new Poundstretcher store.
A spokesman for BT, Mo Byle said:
"We struggled at first to find a site to place the mast, because we didn't realise that the moon is made from soft cheese and not the hard cheddar-like substance we first thought.
"Also, we spent a considerable amount of our budget on a first visit to place notices of our intention to erect the phone mast. That space shuttle was an absolute bugger to drive.
"Thankfully, we did find a couple of American flags and there was a large-wheeled vehicle to pin them to. It also seems, at this stage, that none of the inhabitants seem to have raised any objections to our plans.
"I just hope that people will find our access point useful, although when we were last there, we didn't find many people around. With no weather-related problems, the signal reception should be fabulous.
"But, I must add, with much dismay, that the current inhabitants have littered the moon with golf balls and crisp packets, which is really a very sad reflection on the moon people."
