Iranians Getting Squirrelly

July 13, 2007

I just had to put this on the blog: Squirrel Spy Ring? Thats Nuts!

Police in Iran are reported to have taken 14 squirrels into custody – because they are suspected of spying.

The rodents were found near the Iranian border allegedly equipped with eavesdropping devices.

The reports have come from the official Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

When asked about the confiscation of the spy squirrels, the national police chief said: “I have heard about it, but I do not have precise information.”

The IRNA said that the squirrels were kitted out by foreign intelligence services – but they were captured two weeks ago by police officers.

If the Brits really are using squirrels, it might mean that MI6’s prairie dog team has been compromised:

Details are sketchy.  There are reports that the British Badger Brigade is having more success in Basra, however. 


  1. It’s not the brits using squirrels, it’s the US CIA! Everybody knows that the CIA uses the old TV show “Get Smart” as it’s main training films. The she phone and agent 86 are in Iran as we speak!


    This is funny because it really sounds like the kind of screwball idea spies would really come up with, SPY SQUIRRELS! *SNORT!*

    The scientifically impossible I do right away
    The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer

  2. lol… You had to ruin it at the end though, I was going to link to something about the badgers…

  3. Yea I added the badger thing a bit later…too funny.
