Oh, it's a matter of color now?

We have planned to commit ourselves to silence regarding that Iranian president, seeing as he stopped providing new content, repeating himself. But it appears that the old boy should not be automatically disregarded, he is still good for a few laughs here and there.

This time the comic content is provided by Mahmud via the good services of Asia Times

"A DVD is making a splash in Iran. No, it's not the new, pirated King Kong. It shows Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad telling an ayatollah how he was miraculously enveloped by a green aura when he delivered his fiery speech at the recent United Nations General Assembly in New York. He added that for half an hour the array of world leaders, in awe, didn't even blink."

Since we have missed the TV translation of the speech, we have tried to simulate the situation:

To tell you the truth, we think that reddish pink is more becoming that special face he owns:

See what we mean? But we don't want to enforce our taste in this case; if he wants to be green, let him be green. As long as he keeps to pink underwear, that is. Since his master, "ultra-powerful, ultra-conservative Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi", prefers him this way.

Anyhow, all of the above appears to be a funny coincidence. Our "ways and means" department just called me to tell that:

1. The greenish hue in the United Nations General Assembly auditorium is meant to keep the present luminaries, most of them our remote-controlled reptilians, in a suspended state during the interminable speeches.

2. Being of lizardoid persuasion, the above mentioned luminaries do not blink, unless during televised interviews when seen close up. That, of course, thanks to a remote-controlled timer.

So, Mahmud, since there is nothing supernatural in that green halo, how about listening to us and going to the reddish pink?
