C’mon Barbie, Let’s Go Farsi

After having attacked the lovable duo of Tom and Jerry, those Iraniacs have now set their sights on Barbie, Batman, and friends.

Iran’s toy market is being inundated by models of Barbie, Batman, Spiderman and Harry Potter and the young must be protected from their harmful cultural effects, the prosecutor general was quoted as saying on Sunday.

“Promoting figures like Barbie, Batman, Spiderman and Harry Potter and the uncontrolled import of CDs of video games and films should alarm all the country’s officials,” Ghorban Ali Dori Najafabadi was quoted as saying by the student ISNA news agency.

“We need to find substitutes to ward off this onslaught, which aims at children and young people whose personality is in the process of being formed,” he added.

Perhaps they can start with an Iranian police chief doll.*

    Is it just me, or does anyone else feel sorry for Tom? That bastard mouse keeps on getting under his skin, gnaws away at his house, steals the food, while this poor cat is just trying to do his job and keep some order. If that isn’t enough, he occasionally gets the crap kicked out of him by some thuggish dog that doesn’t do much except sleep.

    Just once I’d like to see him get that damn mouse.

    Projection, much?
