More Cartoon Riots!!!

This time it's Iranians making fun of Iranians. Who to make fun of? Who to support? Who to boycott? Will Palestinians pull Iranian goods off of shelves? Will Muslims eat danish again? Who knows? Who cares? Not I!

Iran Shuts Down Newspaper Over Cartoon

TEHRAN, May 23 — The government shut down one of its official newspapers on Tuesday for publishing a cartoon that mocked Iran's Azeri minority and led to riots in northwestern cities.

The joke?

The cartoon, published Friday, showed a boy repeating the Persian word for cockroach in different ways, while a cockroach in front of the boy asked "What?" in Turkish Azeri.

Ahhhhhhh! Iranian humor. Those guys crack me up!

Awww shucks, they'll be blowing stuff up and beheading Christians for months over this one!

Gawfer - What is your question?

John - Yeah, you're all kinds of broken up!

Whether I'm "broken up" or not is a pretty moot point. I'm merely not surprised at the actions of the "peaceful" Muslims. Their disdain will turn to violence of some form, and the nay sayers will say that it's merely a few "seperatists," or whatever buzzword they're using this week.
