I heard a rumor that they only serve soup in Iranian prisons. If a prisoner wants better food their family has to pay for the extra luxory prison foods.
I think it is indicating that humor could be used in any situation and that it identifies "hope". Sarcastic and smart humor also means the brain is functioning and it is healthy that is important for those imprisoned and their love ones.
Borrowed from Ebrahim Nabavy.
It was when Ebrahim Nabavy who was in prison and visited by his relative and was asked "regime gereftid?" and he answered "na regime ma ra gerfteh!".
The amazing thing about us Iranians is that we joke about the cruelest incidents, I guess at hardest times jokes keep our spirits high.
I don't think it is appropriate to joke about other people's suffering.
This would teach Richard Simmons to come up with a better system for weight loss...Not easy to compete with Islamic regime weight loss system...
Sad and true!
