Iran monkey space launch fake?

Iran monkey space launch fake?

Those are the reports.

Via Ynet:

Just four days after Iran proudly announced it had successfully launched a monkey into space – a move seen as proof of a technological breakthrough which may help the Islamic Republic advance its nuclear program, London’s Times newspaper is questioning the Iranian claims.

The British paper said Friday that two different photographs of the monkey allegedly sent to space raise suspicion that the launch never happened at all or that the original monkey died during the flight and the Iranians introduced a different monkey to announce their triumph….

“It is manifestly a different creature,” the Times said.

..or that the original monkey died during the flight…

So, do monkey martyrs get 72 virgin monkeys, in heaven?

Assuming it was a male monkey, of course.

What difference does it make?


Why Iran has NEVER used BAD photo-shopping for propaganda purposes….

THAT would be WRONG…!!!

Why would anyone assume otherwise?

That’s not a monkey, it’s ahmadinejad’s little brother.

    You beat me to it. I thought it was Ahmadinejad and his brother.

    BTW, why are the Iranians sending Jews and Christians into space? Why so kind to us?

Monkey in space? Big deal. — We’ve had two monkeys as Secretary of State in just the past four years.

Iran can’t even pull off a fake space launch.

Obama responds to Iranian space tragedy:

“If I had a space monkey, he’d look just like the Iranian one.”

Maybe it was affected by cosmic rays and started mutating.

Hey, if they can give the Fantastic Four super-powers, they can mess up a monkey big-time.

I know the mad mullahs are lying perverts, but this is a monkey. I mean, what kind of low-life lies on a monkey?

I copied the headline, entered it into Google, and this is what I got.

I did it solely to show the sad eyed monkey, that it’s no laughing matter.

do no evil

You might say Iran has gone ape over its fake monkey.

So the monkey is fake? What difference does that make now?

Hey, has anybody seen John Boehner? Is he still alive? I hear Iran may have sent him into space in lieu of the monkey. (Of the two, it was realized the monkey was more useful here on earth.)

Uhm… where’s our drone?

“It is manifestly a different creature,” the Times said.

I like that.

Obama is manifestly a colossal douche.

make the iranians produce their birth certificates

Come on, come on, come on
Let’s go space monkey
Come on, come on, come on
Space monkey

[…] Le*gal In*sur*rec*tion asks of Iran’s space launch of a monkey was faked. Your Editor wonders why, if the Iranians wanted to launch a chimpanzee into space, they didn’t use Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? […]

Those two are not even related. Different nose,different ears, different eye socket shape.

Idiots can’t even prepare to cover for problems.
