Takes one to know one

Iranian State TV lashed out at French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, implying that she is a slut who is known for sleeping around.  In response, Mrs. Sarkozy quietly deleted Iranian State TV from her list of Facebook friends.


Keeping up with the Jonesanians

The Los Angeles Times printed a story about local Iranian-American weddings, concluding that they are too extravagant and end up putting the bride and groom in gigantic debt simply because they want to impress friends and relatives with stuff they really can't afford.  Following which the Pulitzer Prize Committee immediately issued a press release announcing the L.A. Times as the winner of their coveted Breaking News and Investigative Reporting Award.


A fate worse than death

The Internet went viral after a video was released of a British woman dumping a live cat in a trashcan and closing the lid, leaving it to die, prompting hundreds of death threats against her after identity was revealed.  In her defense, Mary Bale claimed that she was simply trying to "liberate" the cat from potentially starring in yet another one of those "godawful Youtube cat videos."


Nordegrinning all the way to the bank

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren finalized their divorce amidst credible reports that the golf superstar's ex-wife will likely receive $100 Million in her settlement.  To be fair, that can only partially cover the costs of the solid gold diapers their two babies have been accustomed to.

Palin Punchline

by Niki Tehranchi on

When it comes to the Palin clan, I simply can't find a punchline that would be as good as the real thing.  These people make the Beverly Hillbillies look like the Academie Francaise.

Are you implying that the notion of size is becoming less significant than the concept of numbers? That's like saying to a kid, "hey buddy, there is no Santa!"


Elin also hired 8 lawyers to Tiger's 1 lawyer

And not to be outdone by her baby daddy's reality shows, Bristol Palin will be joining Dancing With the Stars and Mama Palin will be cheering her in the audience on the Arj chairs of the set! 

Everything is sacred


Hey Niki, how's the little one?

by Midwesty on

Takes one to know one:

Heaven: where the police are British, the cooks French, the mechanics German, the lovers Italian, and it is all organized and run by the Swiss.
Hell: where the police are German, the cooks British, the mechanics
French, the lovers Swiss, and it is all organized and run by the Italians.

I guess Sarkozi's new attache' will be organizing the purgatory then.


Keeping up with the Jonesanians

This often happens to the people stayed too long in the dark and brought out into the light in an instant.

I guess LATimes would be even more delighted if they could pay a visit to Iran and observe Iranian evening snack time.


A fate worse than death

Is there any word for I-love-my-cat-so-much-that-I-can-nuke-the-rest-of-world-for-her?

I guess the "Youtube Cat Video" fans are also commentators on the Fox News and their fans are all over the Yahoo News, let alone Youtube.


Nordegrinning all the way to the bank

That makes me wonder why she didn't divorce his ass much earlier?

I guess sometimes some women need to justify things morally!
