These funny Iranians...

Iranian president Ahmadinejad doesn't seem like the funniest guy in the world. But luckily, humour can be found on the streets of Iran. Here three pics I took during a trip to Iran...

No VIP, but CIP at Imam Khomeini International Airport, Tehran.

At the Imam Khomeini mosque in Tehran, a salesman offers religious souvenirs and, of course, Darth Vader - the Master of Darkness.

A bus, parked in front of the burial site of Imam Khomeini, just outside Tehran.

How can you say that Ahmadinejad is not funny. He said in his Columbia speech that there are no homosexuals in Iran. He also asked the booing audience, who cheered him earlier(idiots!), who told them the lie about homosexuals in Iran.
Otherwise he was quite clever, he did not directly answer questions and instead of talking about Holocaust he changed the subject to Palestine.

BTW there is a spoof website of Columbia University ;-)
