Shotgun Not Inviting Him To My Seder

I sure hope Mahmoud Ahmadinejad knows how to swim. Because when he wipes Israel, and consequently Jews, off the map, he might have to jump onto a lifeboat into the sea.

Whether you want to believe it or not, Ahmadinejed may actually be Jewish. Seriously. According to news reports, the Iranian President’s family changed their name from Sabourjian to Ahmadinejad. Sabourjian is traditionally a Jewish-Iranian last name. And supposedly, the family converted to Islam after Mahmoud was born.

Now, this may all be hogwash. It might just be a lame attempt to destroy a guy who currently scares the guts out of everyone in the world. But if they wanted to mock Ahmadinejad, they didn’t have to work so hard.

Check out this BRILLIANT spoof from Saturday Night Live this week. New cast member Nasim Pedrad, Iranian-American (and I read somewhere that she is Jewish, but someone will have to confirm that for me), plays Mrs. Ahmadinejad, in a role that destroys the Iranian leader.
