Just read an article on the Roast for the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over at the Onion. It was hilarious. Of course, since it is the Onion, do not, for heaven’s sake start thinking that this was real.

Ofcourse, the article ends with Mahmoud’s closing statement:

“It warms my heart to see all of you here tonight,” Ahmadinejad said to boisterous applause. “I know some of you have been worried that I may be developing a nuclear program to use against you, but I would like to take this opportunity to assure everyone that its sole, peaceful purpose is to provide the Iranian people with energy.”

How nice, I thought until I read the next line.

Added Ahmadinijad, “We’re gonna need all the electricity we can get when we nuke you fuckers back into the Stone Age, you blood-sucking infidels. Good night, everybody!”


This is satire at its best. The article should take your mind off real world problems for say 3 minutes ! Thinking about it, wouldn’t it be fantastic if there really was such a roast, without the shields of diplomacy at the U.N. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to miss that live telecast…
