No comment from Ahmadinejad on how proud he is to be first to go.

The official IRNA news agency on Monday quoted the head of Iran’s Space Agency as saying five monkeys were undergoing tests before one is selected for the flight on board a Kavoshgar-5 rocket.

    UPDATE: Even though scoring lower in the tests than the other candidates, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad overruled his space program administration, and will be onboard the rocket when it launches. The Iranian Space Agency has made the statement that they believe they can go ahead with the launch as scheduled, but they will have to do an extensive training program to bring the new passenger up to the mental level of the monkeys.

    Acccchhhhhhhhhhmadinnerjacket is very upset over your obviously racist commentary, Fleeceme.

    Just to prove how tolerant he is compared to you, he’s only going to nuke half the satanic Zionist state now.

      As long as he nukes the half with all the Palestinians in it, I consider that a win-win.
