Hugo Chavez is going to meet Ahmadinejad in Tehran sometime this weekend for a meeting of the “minds”. It will be interesting to see how it goes since Ahmadijinad has banned, yes, banned the use of foreign words.
Step one to making a fool out of yourself. Change the names of common things. ie French fries to Freedom fries.. now in Iran its Pizza to Elastic Loaf. LOL
The presidential decree, issued earlier this week, orders all governmental agencies, newspapers and publications to use words deemed more appropriate by the official language watchdog, the Farhangestan Zaban e Farsi, or Persian Academy, the Irna official news agency reported.
Do you suppose Mr. Chavez will have anything to say about this? I am certain he would if President Bush did the same. Rolled bread vs Burrito. Animal sport vs Rodeo.
