Secret Squirrels

The excerpted piece below would be rife for my signature brand of snarkification were it not filled to the brim with hilariousness already. Of course the real surprise is that it comes courtesy of a reputable news org not at all associated with The Onion.
Iranian intelligence operatives recently detained over a dozen squirrels found within the nation’s borders, claiming the rodents were serving as spies for Western powers determined to undermine the Islamic Republic.

“In recent weeks, intelligence operatives have arrested 14 squirrels within Iran’s borders,” state-sponsored news agency IRNA reported. “The squirrels were carrying spy gear of foreign agencies, and were stopped before they could act, thanks to the alertness of our intelligence services.”

I wonder if their attire was big clue.
