Wishful thinking!

Do you ever wonder what would it be like if the Iranian revolution was led by a group of fashion models? Imagine how different things could’ve been.

Instead of sending the revolutionary guards to train Iraqi insurgents to blow things up, we would’ve sent an elite unit of fashion designers to fit insurgents with the latest designer Jeans.

The Mahdi army would’ve been led by Muqtader Al-Parada. And instead of Al-Malaki, the Prime Minister of Iraq would’ve been Giorgio Al-Armani.

Sunnis and Shias would’ve worked out their differences on catwalks instead of sidewalks, and ultimately, suicide bombers would pack their bags and leave since Be Bop belts are in and explosive belts are so out this year.

Wishful thinking … I’m sure.

It's a blog, dammit

by SuzieWong (not verified) on

Will you people calm down? A blog is just a place you put whatever random thoughts are in your head. It doesn't need to be graded.


I think the opposite would be better.

by Tugger on

Take a show like America’s Top Model and ditch Tyra Banks for a couple mullahs.

No more pretentious and fake teary moments of self-absorbed stick figures pretending to dig deep into their souls to tap into the super model within.

The drama would be real! “Your ankles are fat and that makeup makes you look slutty! You are NOT in the running to be America’s top model!” Then they take her out and hang her from a crane.

Now that would get ratings.


Tugger, you can't get the D

Tugger, you can't get the D up even when the B isn't complaining! He posts stuff to be funny. When it isn't funny, I CAN COMPLAIN ALL I WANT. His last few posts have been the most bimazze crap on this site. But, obviously that gets people to talk too!!!


I love you.

You are Siamack with all kind of feelings, moods, thoughts, and more. Smile. This is your life.

Siamack, I love you.

Give them an inch....they want seven.

by Tugger on

Damn you guys are like the Michael Vicks of comic critics. "Make me laugh or I'll string you up by your nuts!"

If you were all so tough in real life you'd be back in Tehran smokin hash and watchin belly dancers with the shah instead of whining about Siamack.

When was the last time Eddie Murphy said something funny? You can't force comic genius. It comes when it comes. 

Ever try and get your d*** up when the b**** is complaining?

So shut up and wait for it.

Nazanin Siamak, again I

Siamak, again I must say, I start reading something with so much potential and then see it go down in the most juvenile AND UNFUNNY way.


You do not have to be funny

by Anonymous on

You do not have to be funny - of couse not. But if you are trying to be but no longer are then you do not have to write -get a second job for a while :-). I just think Siamke's writing no longer has a point (funny or otherwise). In my view this has been the case for a while and I am makning my commnets since iranian.com has made it easy. I think Siamek is very talented and I as I mentioned before I KNOW he can do better. Siamak jan no hard feeling I hope and I just miss your creativity! All The Best!

Loosen up. We have to laugh once in a while. It's a necessary change of pace from all of the crying.


Is it really time to be

by Nay (not verified) on

Is it really time to be funny when Iranians are on the verge of being slaughtered? Some of you people are so infantile.

Siamack: Excellent and outstanding humor. Bittersweet; clever trick.


The only thing funny left

by FUNNY (not verified) on

The only thing funny left from gher bedeh bia
is his picture. yaaaaaa way to go man thats funny...

I picture it differently

by Kaveh Nouraee on

If fashion models were being used, I some how picture them using plastic explosives......made from silicone breast implants.


The detonation fuses would be activated by pulling on strings........tampon strings.


And when they run out of "ammo", they will simply nag the enemy to death.


Now, if you will excuse me, I want to turn on CNN and see if O.J. made bail yet.

We ARE giving him a break! There is such a thing as constructive criticism you know ...


You Need some help

by farzad (not verified) on

Here is a topic for you to think and write about:
Why does the Iranian Government refuse to negotiate with Condoleezza Rice and Zalmay Khalilzad. Who would be a suitable candidate from the US to head the negotiations. Like others I don't find your articles funny anymore.


Give the guy a break!

by farrad02 on

So every comic has hits and misses. So, this one is not one of Siamack's best ever! so what?


Agree with the last comment

by Anonymouss (not verified) on

You used to be hilarious a couple of years ago. Quality not quantity, keep some the crappy material to yourself. :) 'Ever wonder' phrase, in the beginning of a satrirical peice is uspposed to have some basis on reality.


I'd have to agree ...

by Another Anonymous (not verified) on

I'd have to agree with the other post. Compared to your usual sharp wit this seems like the first sketch of a - not quite there - idea.


Sorry to see that you have

by Anonymous on

Sorry to see that you have been losing your touch lately Siamack jan. You are my favorite iranian.com writer (I still send your “Art of Kissing” article to my friend and I still laugh very hard every time I read it). But your writing is not funny anymore....... not that you have to be funny but I could not help noticing when you try sooooo hard and is not working. Maybe you need to read what you are writing first and ask yourself does this sever ANY purpose at all? If not why bother. I KNOW you can do better!
