image for Iran Sends Neanderthal Into Outer Space
One Giant Leap For Neanderthals

Teheran, Iran-- The Iranian government shocked the world today by launching a Neanderthal man into orbit. The hairy hominid circled the earth four times before making a successful splashdown in the Persian Gulf.

No reason was given for the bizarre flight. NASA is just as perplexed as everyone else:

"We don't know what the Iranians are up to." said NASA spokesman Dr. Karl Saygun. "We know they put a monkey in orbit last week--perhaps they are recreating human evolution and then applying it to spaceflight. And where in hell did they get that Neanderthal!" he shouted.

The political world was just as clueless as the scientific world. No one seems to know what Iran may do next:

"We have been playing chess against Iran for years while the Iranians have been playing Monopoly with the us." said outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. "It looks like they just put a hotel on Boardwalk." she frowned.

The only person that knows the real reason for the strange space flight is Iranian leader Mahmoud Imadinnerjacket, and he had very little to say.

"I'm going off to Egypt to talk with the Sphinx." said Mr. Imadinnerjacket with a cryptic smile. "Expect more surprises."
