Get Your Burka Ready, Girls

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations in 2...Image by david_shankbone via Flickr


I'm beginning to suspect that Canadian newspapers have given up on reporting the news and have taken to printing bad jokes instead.

Yesterday the local paper reported that the United Nations has elected Iran, a country in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women who are judged immodest, to its Commission on the Status of Women .

As far as jokes go, it isn't very funny, guys.

I mean, really...

You or I would win the lottery before Iran would be elected to the UN's Commission on the Status of Women.

Rick Mercer would announce that he had actually been born in Buffalo before Iran would be elected to the UN's Commission on the Status of Women.

The Leafs would win the Stanley Cup again before Iran would be elected to the UN's Commission on the Status of Women.

Gilles Duceppe and his hair net would tour another cheese factory before Iran would be elected to the UN's Commission on the Status of Women.

And for sure, Canada would immediately and unconditionally condemn such an outrage!


Right.

The UN has some 'splainin' to do.
