1994 to Irani Government: Do NOT Start a Flamewar

Why yes, the Ayatollah does look fetching in Sunset Prairie blush.

I guess the Irani Government missed the central lesson of 1994, which was do not start a flamewar. Under any circumstance, whatever you do, do NOT start a flamewar. That other guy you just started the flamewar with? He has no life, no sense of fair play and no boundaries. This will never end well for you.

The Irani government took pictures of a young Irani activist in drag, either as a woman, or a nun, I'm not quite sure. "Ha Ha!" said the Irani government. "This move has no counter, the activists cannot recover from this!"

At which point, despite the fact that most Iranis were 5 in 1994, the opposition immediately posted pictures of (a) other men as women/nuns, and (b) the Supreme Leader in drag. Touche, young Iranis, though I'm not sure you've allowed yourselves any further escalation from this point, which is an important consideration in a flamewar. Still, I have to thank you for allowing me to see the Supreme Leader in drag.

I love the 21st century. What a glorious time to be alive.


  1. You write Irani instead of Iranian-- is there a reason why? Farsi speaker?

  2. "Ha Ha!" said the Irani government. "This move has no counter, the activists cannot recover from this!"

    I don't know about the activists, but I'm not sure I'll ever recover from this...

  3. ZOMG they made him out to be like a..... woman. That is the worst possible insult EVER!
