Have you had it happen? You notice guy with his zipper down and everyone knows, but him. It's hilarious and kind of sad all at the same time. You wonder how someone can be so unaware.
I have the same reaction to American Idol. Some contestants are bafoons, others are dead set to be the next superstar and they can't sing worth a lick. Friends and relatives have told them how great they belt out a tune and how they "sound just like (insert name)" when in fact they sound like a wounded animal.
When they get laughed at by the AI judges the reality (and pain) sets in and the cameras get the reaction for everyone's entertainment.
I think to myself...how can someone be so unaware?
In Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (how sad that I know how to spell this creep's name?) is just such a man and he surrounded by other men just like him. I say men with great certainty because they don't allow women to do much in Iran do they?
The President was giddy with the news that his nation was able to launch, and return safely, a monkey to space. To be kind I will set aside the fact that we did it in 1948. I mean what's next...will Mahmoud brag about color TV, Polaroid cameras, and something called a microwave?
The coup de grace is that the space shot was almost certainly a hoax. I reveal as exhibit A the photos of the "monkey" before and after.
The little guy on the left I will name "Before" and the one on the right is "After". Gee, unless a brief stint in space offers immediate mole removal and a rich darkening of the fur (or is it hair?) the two monkeys are not the same monkeys. Good grief the shape of their little faces is different, too.
Mahmoud's fly is down and he has no clue. He just keeps strutting around with his shirt tail looking like a surrender flag. So, there probably was not a space capsule flight of a monkey after-all.
By the way, as the perfect sequel Iran's President has introduced his nation's newest domestically made aviation fighter...the Qaher 313. Hey, don't roll your eyes, the Q313 may be lethal, if the balsa wood body, canvas wings, and prop can take the punishment.
