Iran Bans Homer Simpson Doll Because Of American Influence
Homer Simpson is no longer the funniest man Iran after the countries officials booted him on Monday in an attempt to fend off Western culture. The move comes just several weeks after authorities also revealed that Barbie dolls are no longer allowed to be sold in the Islamic country.
While the country’s officials have not clearly stated by the dolls have been banned one official at the Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults revealed:
“We do not want to promote this cartoon by importing the toys.”
It’s likely that officials were fed up with Homer’s reliance on god and alcohol with such lines spewing out of his mouth as:
”Homer no function beer well without” and “I felt a surge of power…like God must feel when he’s holding a gun.”
Oddly enough Homer Simpson works at and promotes nuclear energy, something Iran has said they are proud of recently. Perhaps banning a nuclear power plant worker who isn’t making nuclear weapons isn’t the best idea Iran officials have had.
Western cultural influences began to creep into the country after the 1979 Islamic revolution and the country has been redefining their toy ban rules over the last month as tensions between the U.S. and Iran have led to President Obama issuing complete bank sanctions against the Iranian Central Bank on Monday.
Toys in Iran must following these rules:
- No distinguishable genitals
- No adult toys
- No toys that belt out tunes in the voices of Western singers
- No kitchen sets with glasses for drinking booze.
Spider-Man and Superman are allowed to remain in the country however because as an official revealed:
“They help oppressed people and they have a positive stance.”
Do you think Iran officials are going to far in oppressing their own people?
