Iran intends to build 150,000 nuclear reactors by 2009 having revealed it can now enrich uranium on an industrial scale.

The country's top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, announced today that Tehran had set a target of providing every community with a population of over 2,500 with its own power station.

By 2010, every house will have electricity and local militia will be equipped with a selection of nuclear missiles.

There are also plans for nuclear-powered cars, buses, trains, digital radios and open ovens for making flatbread.

"We've really cracked it," said Mr Larijani. "We're churning out enriched uranium by the truckload.

"I really don't see any reason why, before the year is out, every single country on the planet won't have a substantial nuclear arsenal.

"Our scientists are already working on a pocket-sized personal bomb and we see this as a product which will outstrip the cell phone.

"Every man, woman and child has the right to own his or her own bomb."

The United States, United Nations and the European Union have expressed their dismay over the proliferation and the end of their nuclear monopoly in the western hemisphere.

Luxembourg, shame-faced after trying to buy a nuclear bomb from North Korea a few months ago, has already made approaches to Tehran, along with Slovenia, Iceland and Scotland's Western Hebrides.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
