David M ,   Miami, USA   (02.01.13)
Ahmadinnerjacket, the ultimate space cadet who appears quite similar in physical nature to the photo above except one looks more like a shaved ape and the other is cute and cuddly. You can decide which is which.

Perhaps whilst in space the monkey received treatment arising from Iran's nuclear research for medical purposes.?

The Persians sure like to monkey around, don't they? Idiots.
12. Pesians & monkeys
jermanh nguyen ,   OR, USA   (02.01.13)
Come to think of it, the monkeys look just like Iran president., just from a different view. One question. Did they send the Pesian president out into space and the guy come back as a monkey?
13. Iran is always clowning Around
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (02.01.13)
If Iran was not so dangerous, they'd actually be quite amusing.
15. Question For Talkbacker's

16. OMG! Comedy Central! I can't stop laughing.
Harry Wright ,   UK   (02.01.13)
Comical plot, quick change artistes, the works! How do Iranians put up with their comical leaders? I would be TOTALLY EMBARRASSED and outraged!
17. Puts a whole new spin ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.01.13)
(pun intended) .... on yesterday's announcement by Iran of its brand-new fourth generation super-duper centrifuges, does it not? Hey, has anyone seen spyguy in Seattle around lately? I'd purely love to read his take on Iran's technology .... come to think of it, haven't seen much of Mahmood, either. Hmm ... now why do you suppose that is?
18. The space monkey is fake the real monkey
Jerome ,   Basalt, Colorado   (02.01.13)
Is the Iranian president! Sorry for stating the obvious.
19. Reasonable Iranians must be
Barney ,   USA   (02.01.13)
embarassed by their stupid, ignorant, hateful government and mullahs.
20. 288-kg monkey?
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.01.13)
Oh, I don't think so. That almost had to have been a gorilla, and a large one at that. What a manifestly cruel thing to do to such a gentle beast. Then again -- a country which sanctions hanging people from jib cranes, burying people to the neck and then stoning them to deat, or lopping off hands without benefit of anaesthesia probably do not have too many issues with cruelty. Actually, one wonders if they know the meaning of the word.

The President of Egypt - Morsi ....Now that is a premium Simian Primate .
22. Iranian news agency, FARCE, refutes London Times
A ,   Belgium   (02.01.13)
article that the original Iranian space monkey died and that a double is taking his place in photographs,..remember the "Paul is dead" sensation? The FARCE artice contained the following segment: "We in Iran understand that you British have a wicked sense of humor, however, in spite of what you would like to believe, that the Greatest Republic on Earth Iran, cannot send a living monkey into deep space (!) without it returning alive is typical Western Imperalistic racism tainted by the Zionists. The monkey, although not having a heart beat and not being able to breath, was pronounced perfectly healthy by Iranian specialists, and was simply tired after its heroic adventure. "He was only resting", they claimed.
23. At last I recognise the character! That's Persian Cat!!!!
Harry Wright ,   UK   (02.01.13)
I just knew there was something familiar with that monkey. That is Persian Cat in disguise!

25. POOR little monkey...

26. Iranian news agency FARCE: Ok, the monkey died,
A ,   Belgium   (02.01.13)
it was poisoned by the oppressive Zionist regime in occupied "palestine".
27. 26
no, it was occupied space by the israelis, by that "zionist cancer regime" they call us.
