Mark all Hotel/Motel Bibles with "Jesus was Gay"

by mannya2001 on

We should start a campaign to show our disrespect to Bibles placed in Hotels/MOtels.  Do your part: rip a few pages here and there, write derogatory statements on the bibles.  If you run out of toilet paper, put them to use.

Let the hardcore Christians feel a bit of the anger that they are inflicting on all other groups in the US with their retarded thinking.



I think all Iranians should

by vildemose on

I think all Iranians should show up with tight fitting spandex at the airports when travelling or wear the least amount of clothing. Arrive


Why cavity searching innocent Iranian travelers?

by Monda on

Stick to IRI affiliates only!

Faramarz it is Hostage Crisis time all over again.

I read that cavity searches are going to happen

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

VPK is right, by the way. Why are Iranians wrapped up in this?! state sponsor of terror is too broad. Iranians don't commit those acts themselves, unless it is toward other Iranians! This new guideline is ridiculous. Great cartoon, though!

Apologies and correction

by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on


I said:  not one single Iranian born man or woman has every been involved in that c**p.

I meant: not one single Iranian born man or woman or  hermaphrodite has every been involved in that c**p.

The Irony

by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on


Is not one single Iranian born man or woman has every been involved in that c**p. Once more Islamic radicals do this and we pay for it. When do we wake up to the fact that Islam == pain and misery for Iranian people.

Meanwhile misguided left wing Iranians whine about Palestine!


But Seriously...

by Faramarz on

Setting aside the humor for a second and looking at the implications of this new policy, I am reminded of the hostage crisis days once more.

The only Iranians that get a tourist/education visa to come to the US are either the relatives of the Iranian-Americans who already live here or, are the young and brave people that are fighting the regime. Why are they profiling them? They should embrace them.

Ahmadinejad and his entourage get the secret service treatment every time that they come to NY, and now the Iranian protesters are getting the cavity check on top of everything else!


If you are <45 male, born Iran, any passport, expect SEARCH

by mannya2001 on

You should expect intimate personal search if you are:

- male, under 45.  If birth place is IRAN, then regardless of passport, expect some soft MASSAGE

You should expect personal search through your bags, if you are:

-arriving into United States.  Age & sex & passport don't matter.  If you are born in Iran and/or  sound Middle Eastern- your bags will be searched by hand. PERIOD.

Thank you for your creativity. I heard he has not visited any foreign countries yet.....maybe he is afraid of the airport screening procedures, or he knows nobody likes him that much outside the country, or he is afraid of flying, or he is afraid of assassination....

Thank you for your cartoon!

Wow, if it was the other way around

by mannya2001 on

you would see "some folks" and his pals posing in bikini to "fight back" the regime!!!


I still can't get my mind off of the mockery some "men" made of themselves by posing in chador.  I just wonder what their relatives would be thinking and saying behind their backs!!!

Maybe something like the "Lost Tribe of Lot"

i wonder if that includes iranian born u.s. citizens who're traveling with u.s. gov't passports (red) as opposed to u.s. personal passports (blue).

Thank you Barack Hussein, now we feel safer!

by David ET on

Even if you have US or other passport as long as it says born in Iran I think you can expect: "“full body pat-down and physical inspection of property,” The screening “could also include explosive detection technology or advanced imaging technology where it’s available,” "using threat-based or random measures". 

Thank you Obama for "random measures". 

I think i figured out how to make US safer. How about bringing every single troop home regardless of where they are, become completely energy dependent , stop bossing the world, and quit making basic rights needs (power, water, health care) privatized and profit based. Give each and every citizen equal rights. Keep religion out of government. Maybe it just makes too much sense to me, but I think it would work better than puttin our nose in everyones business. 

This airport measure, Yemen, Afghanistan, how the health e care turned out seems more like Bush's 3rd term presidency and not a CHANGE! 

(Rumor is Obama is considering to soon include all persons of African origin in the random list, change his skin pigment like Michael Jackson did and change his name to Bo Harold Obush.) 



I see this as humor and bashing Khamenei

by Anonymouse on

I don't have a problem putting regime's leaders, especially Khamenei in compromising positions.  Not every gerd is gerdo.  I didn't like it when they put a scarf on Takhti and others but Khamenei is the target.

This guy the olympic medalist and golden boy Oscar De La Hoya puts on women's dress as his fetish. Khamenei can't have women's clothes' fetish?

Having said that and on second thoughts, maybe this isn't a good idea and the right message for this time.  I'm ok with rescinding my comment.

Everything is sacred.


Is that what it is, when it comes to the lowest form then

by Bavafa on

we make them to be a woman?

This is actually shameful as women are fighting side by side as men in Iran, if not harder, and this is how to show themour appreciation for their sacrifice.

by hamsade ghadimi on

i guess humiliating the opposition by putting them in women's clothes is universal.  btw, where's the tail and hidden horns in his amameh?


Very funny! There must be more punchlines!
