Overnight Thread

By Wyatt Earp | June 17, 2011

You have to hand it to those brilliant Iranian scientists. A mere 42 years after the United States put a man on the moon, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his murderous cronies are planning to send a monkey into space.

Yeah, these morons are on the cutting edge of space exploration.

IRAN Iran plans to send a live monkey into space in the summer, the country’s top space official said after the launch of the Rassad-1 (Observation-1) satellite, state television reported today.

“The Kavoshgar-5 rocket will be launched during the month of Mordad [July 23 to August 23] with a 285-kilogram capsule carrying a monkey to an altitude of 120 kilometers ,” according to Hamid Fazeli, the head of Iran’s space organization.

This is exactly how the Planet of the Apes started.

The lovely and talented Skye once again made the list of the Top 20 Hottest Conservative Women In The New Media. I knew there were hot conservative chicks in my area. I just knew it! Congratulations, Skye!

    : I want to say this is what we expect from a country that thinks genies are influencing their politics. But at the same time Iran is building nukes off in Venezuela and this is a nice news distraction for them.

    We should have taken out their nuke program when we had the chance. Putting worms into their computer systems will only work for so long.

    What they do not tell you is the reason the monkey is going is because he scored the highest on the aptitude test to operate the ship. The Iranians ain’t too bright.

    Be safe (and evolve to at least monkey levels).

    Chris C – I am really surprised Israel didn’t do that.

    Robert B. – He was such a disgrace.

    JT – I saw that at Ace. Brilliant!

    Dustyvet – I wonder if they could dock with the Pigs in Space? What with the Muslim ideals and all.

    Swarner – And even monkeys are smart enough to avoid Islam.

    Iran: so technologically advanced, they have to steal worn-out jet engines (from Israel!) to keep their air force flying.

    If we get to watch the launch, I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that the monkey, using international sign language, will sign: “I am so glad to be getting outta here!”

    Bob G. – James Franciscus is a poor man’s Heston.

    Jon – Maybe he’ll land in capitalist waters?
