I questioned all this stuff and Hugh said I was takling about the wrong country. I should have been talking about Saudi Arabia and its propensity for chopping off body parts. I'm off to Iran tomorrow to search for uncovered ankles. I'm a bit of a leg man.

What is the woman on the left doing, putting on lipstick? I see an ankle. I'm glad I wasn't there, I don't know if I could have contained myself. Where are Iran's sex police when you need them? How can you run a totalitarian theocracy when things like this are allowed to happen in public unpunished?
