Last Word


With all deference to the brilliant comments on Ahmadinejad’s boffo show in NYC, I think Scrappleface has the last word:

Queer Eye for the Iranian Guy Woos Ahmadinejad

by Scott Ott

(2007-09-25) – Producers of the new BravoTV series “Queer Eye for the Iranian Guy” said they’re close to inking a deal with Islamic Republic President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to appear in the season opener.

While it’s a well-known fact that there are no homosexuals in Iran, the network plans to import them to Tehran from the United States in order to give Mr. Ahmadinejad “a radical, extremist makeover.”

During the course of the show, the Iranian leader will be “fundamentally transformed head-to-toe” by a group of homosexual men known as the Fab Five – an interior designer, a fashion stylist, a chef, a beauty guru and a ‘concierge of cool’.

According to a news release from the show’s producers, “By the time the Fab Five are done with him, the A-man will have gone from geek to gorgeous, sporting new threads, new taste in pop music and a new sense of self-identity.”
