Iran Busts Zionist Squirrel Spy Ring

In a story that needs no embellishment, the Iranian state news agency, IRNA, is reporting that fourteen “spy squirrels” were captured infiltrating Iran. According to IRNA: “In recent weeks, intelligence operatives have arrested 14 squirrels within Iran’s borders. The squirrels were carrying spy gear of foreign agencies, and were stopped before they could act, thanks to the alertness of our intelligence services.”

Allegedly, the critters were equipped with modern technology including GPS units, cameras, and listening devices. The report also said that the squirrels were trained for espionage and information-gathering and are believed to have been sent to Iran by Israel. No word on whether 00NUTS and company were coordinating their attack with the now infamous man-eating badgers released by British soldiers in Iraq last week.

A Centuries Old Conflict…
