Mister We Could Use A Man Like Spike Jones Again

Spike (and no, I don’t mean the MTV video director) would have had loads of fun with this news:

Tehran, 14 April (AKI) – Iran’s hardline president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has apparently been incensed by an anonymous text message suggesting he does not wash enough. Ahmadinejad has taken legal action over the offending text, has fired the president of a phone company and has had four people arrested and accused of colluding with the Israeli foreign intelligence service, Mossad, the anti-government website Rooz Online reports.

On the other hand, it sounds like the Iranian people are doing a pretty good of supplying their own underground humor, which is great to hear.
