Prime Minister Kevin Rudd today announced a space base will be built at Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory as part of America’s plan to land a hamburger on the dark side of the moon. The PM signed up for the project during his recent visit to China’s newest province , America . President Obama ushered Mr Rudd aside and outlined the secret plan for the fastest food launch in history .
As a special privilege , Mr Rudd will do the count down for the historic burger lift off. As everybody knows, Mr Rudd can count up to 10 because he enumerates at least that many points in each speech he makes. But can he count backwards to launch a mighty French Fries multi - stage rocket ? To make sure that he does not miss a beat , rocket expert Wernher von Braun , a German cheese and snitzel eating surrender monkey who collaborated with the Yanks , will be flown from Washington to Canberra to teach the PM how to count backwards from 10 to zero .
Rocket scientist Tom Lehrer pointed out von Braun , who helped blast London to smithereens with rockets , became an American hero because of his capacity to count backwards . This same skill will help our astronaut leader , who has hardly come down to earth since he took office , to expand the ALP’s education revolution which is designed to make Australia rotate anti-clockwise on its axis.
