image for Hold the salad recipe! Kim Jong Un orders mizuna and spinach leaf launch instead of rocket
Fresh produce managers at Pyongyang Insanesburys blamed for Friday's fiasco

Pyongyang - Daft pot-bellied North Korean food-freak Kim Jong-un has blamed 'the wrong kind of leaf' for last week's disastrous space launch it was reported today.

Friday's flaccid rocket fiasco may have failed to hit the high spot because technicians confused the tasty herb with something a lot less savory.

Their Iranian launch advisers had claimed Sisymbrium irio - or London Rocket - is a classic in treating coughs 'and the Congestion Charge'.


Bedu aficionados of the evil bong are also notorious for smoking its dried leaves as a substitute for tobacco 'and other combustibles'.

Today reports from North Korea said a number of fresh produce managers from Pyongyang Insanesburys had been disciplined over the mess and ordered to deliver the requisite supplies on pain of death.

Lamb's lettuce, mizuna, lollo rosso lettuce, water cress and spinach are all on the menu for a brand new lunch - er...launch!

It's hoped that once up in the atmosphere the verdant leaves will reproduce to provide enough salad to feed North Korea's starving masses.

A bag of Icelandic Iceberg is still a bargain at 23Yuan.
