First, it was Barbie. Now, Iran’s mildew-minded Mullahs, are going after… The Simpsons!
In their futile effort to stem “western intoxication”, the Republic’s top dogs (oops, my bad) have ordered the morality hounds (doh!) to sniff out any likeness of the Springfield clan… “Diese Bart Simpson puppe ist Verboten!” (Please employ Farsi accent)
According to one, Mohammad Hossein Farjoo, Secretary for Policy-making at the Institute for the Intellectual (gasp) Development of Children and Young Adults (phew!), The Simpsons, like Barbie, are corroding the morals of Iranian youts.
However, Herr Farjoo, who oversees what Iranian rug rats can play with, does give a nod of approval to some American action figures… like Superman and Spiderman. The Farj points out, that unlike The Simpsons, who are a self-centered, irreligious bunch, The Man of Steel and Spidey battle for the oppressed!
Obviously, the Wacko-tollah and his gang of religious, Nazi-like numbnuts, are unfamiliar with the meaning of “oppressed”.
OBVIOUSLY, they fail to realize, that if Superman were real, if he in fact did exist… THEY WOULDN’T! He’d punt their tight tuckuses (tucki?) to infinity and beyond!
He’s not faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, or able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but Bart Simpson packs a punch. Just the thought, of his defiant, cheeky comeback gaining a foothold, scares the Hell out of Tehran.
“EAT… MY… SHORTS!”
