We already knew that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was a loon. We just didn’t know he was this loony. Over the weekend Ahmadinejad denounced Paul the Octopus–an octopus in Germany which correctly picked some of the winners of Wold Cup soccer matches–as an arm of Western propaganda. Not kidding:
Ahmadinejad: Western Propaganda Via Sea Creatures
He said Paul spread ‘Western propaganda and superstition’.
‘Those who believe in this type of thing cannot be the leaders of the global nations that aspire, like Iran, to human perfection, basing themselves in the love of all sacred values,’ he added.
Paul represents decadence and decay among Iran’s enemies, the president said.
Here’s video of the speech with some funny “augmentation.”
