Oh gosh.  Oh golly.  Iran is upset.  At a movie.  Boo freakin’ hoo!

Yes, Iran is having a hissy fit over the country’s negative depiction in the Ben Affleck film, Argo. Never mind it was based on a true story! Yep – actually happened. But that doesn’t stop ol’ thin-skinned Iran from getting all hot and bothered. And it’s not the first time. Just a few years ago, Iran got upset about how ancient Persians were portrayed in the box office smash, 300.  And this is not all so different from the time President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lodged a formal complaint with the Cat Fanciers Association claiming that the Persian breed should be renamed because it was “too wussy.”  Sh-yeah.  Or that time the Ayatollah said the FCC should ban the Flock of Seagulls tune I Ran because its title was misleading.  (Of course, he secretly admitted he detested the catchy synthpop rhythms of the Liverpool quartet merely on principle.)  Oh yeah.  And then there was that time the Islamic Republic once walked out of a United Nations assembly because it thought Azerbaijan was “looking at it funny.”  Pffff!

It’s just growing pains, I tell you.  Iran is just acting out, like a petulant adolescent.  They only want attention.  Bunch of oversensitive bleedin’ drama queens, the lot!

Go suck a uranium rod, ya posers!
