Calling Mel Brooks

bus.jpegMel’s been getting a little long in the tooth lately … I’m not especially keen on his endless recycling of “The Producers” … but I think he’s just the guy for the mullahs’ new Holocaust Cartoon Contest. He could even give them a Busby Berkeley routine (all boys, of course, nothing unseemly).

But I don’t want to intrude. Maybe the mullahs want to do this themselves. Though sometimes you wonder if there’s been a serious “brain drain” over in Iran. Some of their most talented people have emigrated. Some folks claim it’s even going to take them another ten years to do things others were able to do in a year or two over sixty years ago. But I’m optimistic. I think the mullahs are going to get their wish sooner than that. A lot sooner.
