Even Iranians Love Assless Chaps

One of my absolute favorite things about blogging is that the constant perusal of the internet for stories and information inevitably leads one to tremendously funny and quirky corners of the internet.

This evening I was treated to one such discovery during my search for an appropriate image for tomorrow's Countdown To Football Season.

Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce you to Pars Times. The site's about page explains its mission:

This is a non-profit, non-partisan and totally independent website. It's mainly targeted for researchers, scholars and investors.

The site aims at providing comprehensive information pertaining to Iran and the Middle East.

Fair enough. I'm no middle eastern scholar, but who doesn't love a good mullah joke or two?

Actually, though, the site contains more than just ammunition for neo-conservatives. It's got one of the finest collections of Texas cheerleader pictures available on the interweb today.

Don't just take my word for it: check it out yourself.

What could possibly explain this oddity? I've run several theories through my mind, but the best  I can come up with is that the new Pars Times intern got a little carried away with his most recent assignment: "A Comparative Study Of American And Iranian Women: An Illustration Of Contrast Through Photography." It's a fascinating project idea, and though the gallery seems a touch out of place on the site standing on its own, we're tremendously excited to see pictures of Texas cheerleaders put to greater use than BON's juvenile amusement.

Put me down for ten advance copies of the final product.
