The International Journal of Nonsense is to launch a manned mission to Mars. It will be the first time an International Journal has embarked on a space mission.
Dubbed Flingoplanet, the mission will be entirely powered by discarded foodstuffs. It is thought there are enough uneaten burgers in the Catford Sidings area alone to propel the spacecraft out of earth's orbit.
The waste food will be delivered to the spacecraft by advanced rocketry, said Prof Sunby Tombato, head of the IJN space programme. We believe that we can sustain a manned mission on the Mars indefinitely by continually sending discarded burgers in hydrogen-powered missiles.
