Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gave a greater insight today into the reasons behind Iran's nuclear programme.
"We are shocked and appalled at the idea that people suspect us of trying to create a Nuclear Missile. We would consider something resembling a giant penis with a bomb attached to it, both embarrassing and a crude form of Idolatry. We simply want a clean and reliable energy source to meet our nation's needs.
He went on to state that certain nation's insist on having metaphorical penis measuring contests.
"Look at the United States, anywhere you go in big cities, tall penis shaped buildings. The same now with China, Singapore and many other places. We believe the penis is not something to be so brazenly flaunted and should be between a man and a wife".
"To say we wished to replicate the Nuclear Arsenal of the United States, would almost be to say, we envy or covet their penis'. As there are no homosexuals in Iran (according to a Government census) we do not see a situation where we would need to get involved in a penis fight.
There has been no official response from Washington. Insiders have claimed the size and multitude of metaphorical penis' in the United States would easily give them the edge whether or not this denial by Tehran proves to be the truth or simply a smokescreen.
