Manolo says, here is the oldie, but the timely goody from the archives of the Manolo.
Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo to comment upon the clothing of the Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the koo-koo-nutty president of Iran.
Normally, the Manolo he does not care to think too much about the sartorial choices of such ridiculous and dangerous peoples, preferring in the stead to devote his precious thinking time to weightier matters, such as whether or not the loathsome Jeffrey will be one of the Project Runway final three, or if the Hasselhoff will ever again find the true love with the career chick of his dreams.
But, the Manolo he is nothing if not obliging to his internet friends, and so he will make the brief remarks.
Briefly and remarkably, the President of the Iran wears the same khaki windbreaker, wrinkled trousers, cheap oxford shirts, scruffy beard and wild eyes favored by the aging high school chemistry teachers everywhere.
Yes, in his youth he was the firebrand who would shake the very foundations of the society, but today he is content to expound upon his paranoid conspiracy theories while exercising his petty autocratic powers over the dull kids who sit in the back of the class.
In the word, he has tenure.
“Umm, Mr. Ahmadinejad, it’s time for recess.”
“Shut up and sit down, Chad, we’re not done discussing how the international Zionist cabal is controlling the lunch room.”
The Manolo has nothing more to say about the clothes of the Ahmadinejad, other than that they are bad, terribly bad, even when judged against the already lamentably low standards set by the current crop of tyrants, despots, and dictators-to-be.
Please go read the whole thing, even though, lamentably most of the photos the Manolo selected to go with this are no long valid.
