Iranian president wants to copy monkey

Just a week after Iran claimed it had sent a monkey into space, their president has said he is willing to emulate it.

In a desparate attempt at getting a first manned flight into infinity and beyond, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said he is willing to take on the challenge himself, according to AP.

Obviously, the president has that gung-ho, masculine attitude beloved by many people of their leaders (Note: Vladimir Putin below), and he also doesn't want to be outdone by the primate.

The monkey Iran claims it sent into space.

Former Russian President, Vladimir Putin, just before he jumped into space on his horse, probably....

Maybe he will meet this lot.
