So, yesterday the parliament of Iran -- the country where "Deep Throat" refers to the best place to stick a machete -- voted in favor of a bill that could lead to the death penalty for anyone convicted of working in the production of pornographic movies.
With a 148-5 vote in favor, Iranian lawmakers approved that "producers of pornographic works and main elements in their production are considered corrupters of the world and could be sentenced to punishment as corrupters of the world."
The term, "corrupters of the world" by the way, is lifted directly from the Koran (of course).
The bill covers all electronic visual material, such as videos, DVDs and CDs. Other materials, such as porn magazines and books, are already banned under Iranian law.
You know something, let the naysayers claim that this is more proof that Iran is basically run by a bunch of batshit, primitive thugs; I'm more of a glass-half-full kind of guy.
This is actually a bold step forward for Iran.
It's finally willing to acknowledge that videos, DVDs and CDs -- all technology created post-third century -- do, in fact, exist.
In other news, Iran has a porn industry.
