There it goes...
Bahram Dahi  [info|posts]

Spy_vs_Spy.jpg According to some unofficial reports, recent polls in Iran show that while pro-democracy people are debating passionately about voting for the moderate presidential candidate, Mostafa Moeen, or totally boycotting the election, another sector of the society, namely the Basij and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, are united to do their best to take the conservative mayor of Tehran, Mahmoud Ahmadi Nejad, to the run-off.

While I am not trying to argue about what needs to be done at this stage of Iranís revolution, as other people have discussed before in this forum, the current situation reminded me of a joke that I heard some time ago.

It says:

The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep. Some hours later, Tonto woke the Lone Ranger and said, "Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?" The Lone Ranger replied, "I see millions of stars." "What that tell you?" asked Tonto. The Lone Ranger pondered for a minute, then said, "Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically, it's evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you, Tonto?" Tonto was silent for a moment, and then said, "Kemo Sabe, you dumber than buffalo shit. Somebody stole tent."

I always thought it was Sherkock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Maybe you have too much in your mind right now Bahram ;) I guess you know what I am talking about.
