    The Iranian government, which captured a U.S. stealth drone in December, has agreed to give the top-secret spy craft back, but with a catch.

    Instead of the original RQ-170 Sentinel drone, the Islamic Republic said Tuesday that it will send President Obama a tiny toy replica of the plane.

    Iranian state radio said that the toy model will be 1/80th the size of the real thing. Iranian citizens can also buy their own toy copies of the drone, which will be available in stores for the equivalent of $4.

    I still wonder if the US gave them a Trojan Horse.

    Does it include an attached 1/80th scale nuclear weapon?

    I'm not sure which is funnier, the toy replica or Obama actually thinking they would give it back

    I want one of those toys! When I'm 90, I'll go on to one of those pawn shop TV shows with my hover-wheelchair and say "I bought this when I was young. It cost me $4, of course that was back when we used paper currency!" and they'll call in an expert to have a look at it.. oh, it will be great!

    President Obama should have the Seals wake Ahmedenijad (how the fuck ever you spell that) up in the middle of the night and ask real nice like for the drone back.
