Apparently, some people in Iran decided that they should try to get into the Guinness Book Of World Records with the world’s largest ostrich sandwich. Well, take a wild guess how this ended.

Event organisers had planned to display the world’s largest ostrich sandwich in a park in the capital Tehran.

But as the sandwich was being measured, chaos ensued. The giant snack was gone in minutes, a Reuters witness said, leaving the three Guinness representatives present with a dilemma.

Uh-oh! So, how can the Guinness People vouch for this feat? Never fear, for the Iranian photoshop artists organizers are on the case.

One of the event’s organisers said video footage of the sandwich would be sent to Guinness officials.

“We still think the sandwich will be recorded in the Guinness book because of all the evidence and footage that we will send them,” Parvin Shariati said.

Yeah, after their graphic designers are finished with it.

Mr. President, we must not allow a sandwich gap!

I’m going to go with safir-i omeed.

You might need to google around to get that one. Unless you’re Muslihoon.

So, the moral of the story is — the mullahs need to invest more money on affordable ostrich sammiches so crowds of hungry people don’t go crazy, and less money on lame rocket launches.

It’s a crazy world.

Nom nom nom.

GLAR, Mesa.

I just wrote a scathing review of a general world history book. Really it’s a world “history” book, that is actually a 260-page rant about how bad capitalism is.

I don’t think anyone can write a decent, all-encompassing world history book that isn’t either (a) too heavy to be carried by one human being, or (b) so non-specific as to be worthless. This one went the non-specific route, and it’s pretty painful. It’s also full of utterly untenable assertions that are backed up by exactly no footnotes (often because no respected scholar would write anything to support such nonsense).

Okay, I’m still laughing at that one.

Tastes just like chicken!

Ostrich meat is revolting. As a lark, hubby bought a pound of this bloody ground flesh to try out on the grill once. We each took one bite and spit it out.

13. eddiebear - October 21, 2008

Back about 10 years, some farmers in central MO tried to raise emus and sell the meat. It was such an abysmal failure that the meat was eventually given to a local homeless shelter.

14. TattooedIntellectual - October 21, 2008

Emu tastes a lot like venison. So does ‘roo. Ostrich is ok, but a bit dry.

15. Retired Geezer - October 21, 2008

We like Elk meat and Deer meat. (are they both called venison?)
I hear Moose is pretty good too.

16. TattooedIntellectual - October 21, 2008

What we call elk here is actually red deer, so my assumption is that both are venison.

17. Cathy - October 21, 2008

We had red deer meat while in New Zealand.
Yummy. Not gamy at all.

18. Fuck this article - November 19, 2008

Fuck the author of this article and fuck michael (post #4) you fuckin white trash. =]

19. Sobek - November 19, 2008

Michael, he makes a pretty good point.

20. Michael - November 19, 2008

Yeah, Sobek, but how does he know Eddie and I are white? Huh?

21. Sobek - November 19, 2008

All I’m saying is, how do you argue with that kind of logic? You can’t, that’s how.

22. Michael - November 19, 2008

I just don’t think that’s fair. I could be Chinese trash for all he knows.

20: I make Conan O’Brien Look swarthy

24. Sobek - November 19, 2008

Think about it, Michael. If you were anything other than white, you would be sensitive to and respectful of all other nationalities, races and cultures. If you say anything that could conceivably be read as culturally insensitive, it proves you are white.

I wish fuckthisarticle.com was a real blog.
