Tehran - (Stone-the-Crows!): The official Iranian PR organ Khayan has rubbished Madame Sarkozy, calling her a prostitute for doing what First Ladies do best.
An editorial this week lambasted Carla Bruni's easy virtue for calling out Iranian mullahs in the Sakineh Ashtiani stoning controversy.
The row is eerily reminiscent of a previous lapidiary blow job involving former French First Lady Danielle Mitterand.
Madame M slammed hardline Iranian clerics by comparing their obsession with stonings, mutilations and floggings to the seedier end of Top Shelf entertainment so popular with some Western males.
Mitterand blamed what she termed teetotalitarianism and searing Middle Eastern temperatures for cooking that part of the Iranian male brain associated with the pleasure principle.
"Eez disgusting," the First Lady was reported to have commented.
Meanwhile in the Elysee Palace officials are trying to play down the latest slur on hapless Carla's virtue.
"Just wait until they need someone to troll for them at the UN security Council," a spokesman chuckled today.
