Leader of Iran attacks irrelevant octopus.

 

(NOTE: This is a true story.) Paul the Octopus, who was 9-0 predicting World Cup games, was added to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's long list of human and non-human enemies this weekend. Ahmadinejad accused the cephalopod of spreading "western propaganda and superstition" when it repeatedly crawled into a box labeled with country flags. Presumably, the lack of a free press in Iran prevented Ahmadinejad from hearing about the octopus when it was actually in the news. (Via The Daily Telegraph UK, photo by REUTERS/EPA)

 

Our condolences, Mahmoud >>
