If wearing shorts in Iran is wrong, then I don't wanna be right.

No necklaces for men? I foresee the rise of the Freedom Horn.

@BadUncle Well there goes Mr. T's conversion to Islam.

"Last summer authorities in Tehran also released a list of approved hairstyles in an attempt to offer Islamic substitutes to "decadent" western cuts, such as the ponytail and the mullet." Decadent. Mullets.

Presumably, the ban would not extend to the Saluki (aka "Persian Greyhound"), which is not considered unclean.

@BadUncle I knew Southern Illinois University was persuing a radical Jihadist agenda.

But unkempt beards are apparently okey-fine.

…and so it was that Kevin Smith and Jafar Panahi launched their collaboration, Wearing Jorts in Jahrom

Reducing worldwide proliferation of shorts is in the interest of all nations.
