Iran’s Institue for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults has banned Simpsons’ toys from Iran. Bart and Homer dolls are blacklisted, as well as Barbie, and dolls of adults or any doll with distinguishable adult genitals, “because these dolls are promoters of Western culture”. But Spiderman and Superman dolls got a pass because even though they’re American, “they help oppressed people”.
- And that my friends is the definition of the word “Irony”.
- Sounds like the guys who made this ruling suffer from a lack of “distinguishable adult genitals”.
- Superman is okay, but Lois Lane has to enter a phone booth and change into a Burka!
