Moscow (IP) - The Russian government has announced that they will turn the moon into a giant Sputnik in the greatest work of art ever attempted by man.
They will wrap the moon in a special silver foil and place four antennae that will extend outward in the same way that Sputnik's did.
Asked why they would do such a thing, Putin replied, "because we can". One reporter insists that he saw a Vodka flask protruding from Putin's coat but this assertion could not be proven.
Scientists from the International Astronomical Union (IAU) have called an emergency meeting at the United Nations and will debate whether the Russians plan constitutes any violation of international law. Dr. Povenmire Finootch took off a shoe and pounded it on the UN podium as he spoke against the Russian plan. His actions were reminiscent of the cold war era visit by Kruschev who also pounded his shoe while speaking before an international audience.
Former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover once took off one of his shoes while in a drunken rage and pounded it on a podium but much to his horror and to the amusement of many present it turned out to be a lady's high heel shoe. Hoover's passion for ladies clothing was matched only by his passionate hate against communism.
