    Headline should read- Ahmadinejad: “I see gay people!”

    Hey…! How come the Iranian 3D’s look better (re: cooler) than the ones i had to wear when i saw the flick in Johannesburg?

      It’s possible that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has good connections.

    I love the wit in this, good example of a great title completing a piece.

    This piece sold at the digital media show at Dianne Ferris Gallery in Vancouver, B.C. Canada, last night. Lots of dialogue around the wit of the artist.

    A great show if you are in the city- check it out.
