THE crew of the International Space Station has been told it will have to resort to cannibalism after a supply rocket blew up.
NASA admitted it was the only rocket it had left and that the astronauts had just 72 hours worth of food pouches.
A spokesman said: “Budget cuts. We cut the rocket budget and the food budget. And it was only mashed bananas in the first place.
“And we also cut the rescue budget. Anyway, if I was them I’d just get on with it. It’s going to be pretty messy up there for a few days.”
The spokesman added: “They are all trained professionals and dreadful show-offs so no-one’s going to go quietly – but the hand-to-hand combat will be brilliant.
“It’s a shame that guitar-playing hippy isn’t still up there. I suspect that would have made the whole process much simpler.”
