From our Humor Department:
An announcement is made about the new Soviet space program: a mission to send a man to land on the sun.
Reporters asked, ‘But Mr Brezhnev, the cosmonauts will burn up!’
He answered: ‘Do you take me for a fool? They’ll be landing at night!’
Leonid Brezhnev was head of the Soviet Union from 1964 to 1982.
