Quoting The Onion word-for-word, Fars states that an opinion poll also found 77% would rather go to a baseball game or have a drink with Mr Ahmadinejad.

I think it really depends on what we're doing. Basketball and a beer? Definitely Obama. Pushing Israel into the sea? Gotta go with Ahmadinejad.

On The Onion they have "For more on this story: Please visit our Iranian subsidiary organization, Fars."

I wonder if they celebrate at The Onion whenever they fool some other news organization.

If there's one thing muslims are known for, it's their wacky sense of humor and thick skin. Well, make that two things.

But I thought Fars was also a satirical news site. You know with all those shopped rockets and drones and powerboats and stuff.

Not a fan of Israel?


I liked their earlier work, but they've gotten way too mainstream.

If you follow the link to the Fars story, we get "Error For Your Request . Not Exist This Story." Seems they're quietly disappearing their mistake (or else the link is misspecified).

The story actually said "rural whites" so you could see how someone might believe it.

And really, it's understandable these people think this way. It's not like their governments are going to extol the virtues of free speech.

Considering an early greatest hit for Ahmadinejad was "Iran has no homosexuals", you have to call most of the country's grasp on reality tenuous at best.

/Like Fox News.

Ok. Is this going to be a straight up trade or do we get some boot with it, like maybe a few goats or a camel?

Beholden to a religious extremist segment of the populace? check.

Seems like a big percentage of the world hates him? check.

You've got to love the edits on the Iranian version of this article.

Onion: ",,,have a beer with Ahmadinejad"

Fars: ",,,have a drink with Ahmadinejad"

Also, the Fars article deletes the references to Holocaust denial, execution of political prisoners, and gays. Wonder why they would do that?

///They must be dicks over there, because they are not only denying the Holocaust, they're denying the existence of BEER!!!

///Sweet, sweet, beer...
