What an Ass

Some may have felt the Nat'l Geographic photoshop of the Iranian PM was unduly, shall we say, uncouth.

Read this:

Shargh, an Iranian reformist newspaper, was shut after it published a cartoon, right, that seemed to make fun of President Ahmadinejad.

A donkey is a symbol of ignorance in Iran and the light around its head seemingly alluded to Mr Ahmadinejad’s claim that he is surrounded by a divine light.
