Theran,Iran-Taking a cue from an old comedy skit, the United States successfully unleashed the world's deadliest joke on the Iranian government. Carefully crafted so as to be extremely funny only to it's intended target, the joke toppled the Iranian president and his cabinet within minutes of being viewed. Guards rushing to the aid of the fallen officials also succumbed.
It wasn't until the power was cut and the video retrieved that the damage was known. By then it was too late. It had already been aired by Iranian television and casualties started pouring in to hospitals. Some dead, other's dying of laughter.The survivors quickly realized that they had no choice but to surrender.
In the video President Obama laughs about the Iranian hostage crisis, praises religious fanaticism and sings the ironic "Why Can't We be friends", by the sixties rock group, War.
It seems the only ones unaffected by the joke were those oppressed by the government itself.
"They could not help but laugh, They died laughing. They held his people hostage, They were among the most oppressive people on earth, they sponsored terrorism around the globe and the president of the United States breaks out with this song? I mean, come on! FUUUUUUUUUNNNNNY!" said Mohammad Hussein, a former dissident interviewed for this story.
"And the lyrics, killer material there."
"You know the most ironic thing about the whole episode?" Mr. Hussein said, still chuckling."Before they could view the DVD they had to find a machine that would play DVD's formatted for play in the United States."
