Amazing Rocket Ship walks independently for the very first time: baby steps

The boffins at the Rocket Ship Foundation have done it again – giving Amazing Rocket Ship a set of feet to make safe manoeuvres on extraterrestrial terrains. Watch this little video of Amazing Rocket Ship’s first baby steps.

Fake White House: dastardly plan by Amazing Rocket Ship

With President Trump out of the country for a few days, Amazing Rocket Ship and a stealth team from the Rocket Ship Foundation have been busy. A fake White House has been assembled [out of cardboard for lightness] and set up in a secret location.

Donald Trump arrives home in Washington and is deceived by the fake White House

The plan is as follows: President Trump and entourage arrive home full of themselves; a convoy of pretend limos takes the great and the good to the Fake White House; whereupon Donald, besides himself with pumped up pride at what he has done as a global statesman, enters the portico [ignorant to the fact this is not his usual residence], and into the bowels of Amazing Rocket Ship, cunningly waiting. The rest is simple – a flick of a switch and the Trump is blown into orbit and everyone gets back to doing what they were doing in early 2016.

Budget priced Amazing Rocket Ships now on sale

The Rocket Ship Foundation, aware that some enthusiasts may not have deep enough pockets for a proper Amazing Rocket Ship, or may not require the huge payload for items such as domestic animals or a case or two of vintage Bordeaux, today presents its budget range.

While there may be some economies, be assured that the manufacturing process is as rigorous, and that your rocket will still be powered by Make-Believeâ„¢.
