Iran… Laugh While You Still Can on Facebook
The Iran–Laugh While You Still Can comedy troupe has dedicated its talents to the cause of the hope that we will never have to fight a World War IV…with stone cudgels.
It was announced Tuesday, March 27, that the comedy troupe has developed a humorous Facebook page entitled strangely enough “Iran–Laugh While You Still Can.”
The intent of this Facebook page is to use such media as political cartoons, news video snippets, and often satirical commentary to get people to laugh at what has developed over the last decade into one of the most disturbing and dangerous issues facing the nation and the planet: the possession of nuclear weapons by Iran.
The Founder of the comedy troupe says, “Humor unites people…it has a way of bringing people together. It is amazing to see how people interact on our site and maybe through spreading laughter we can resolve this very serious situation.”
“Due to a series of circumstances that are too long to recount here, Iran has become a focal point of the lives of people all over the world. Whether it is Iran’s flagrant abuses of civil rights, its nuclear program, its use and abuse of oil prices or simply its hate-filled rhetoric, Iran is constantly in the news,” it was stated by the comedy troupe.
It says that Einstein’s quote comes to mind here: ‘I don’t know what kind of weapons will be used in the third world war, assuming there will be a third world war. But I can tell you what the fourth world war will be fought with — stone cudgels.’
So laugh while you can at Iran, world, because once Iran does get the bomb, a few million less people and a few less countries will be laughing.” explains a senior member of Iran Laugh While You Can who wishes to remain anonymous.
Its Facebook page has been designed and is run by Iran Laugh While You Can, a comedy group dedicated to satire and humor concerning Iran as it is seen by the West in these times.
All quotes are kept anonymous to keep people safe from being targeted, it was stated. You can visit the page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Iran-Laugh-while-you-still-can/272233746183470
