Face of the Day

Not so funny now, is it?  The thing looks terrified.

      He was probably grinning when he realized he just got out of Iran..

      Either way, they probably think they’re rattling the sabre. They forgot the part where the US did this stuff 60 odd years ago.

        Correction: The US did this stuff FIFTY years ago. Sixty years ago, it was busy destroying democracy in Iran.
