No Douchebag Haircuts for Iranians

In a religious fervour that makes Saudi Arabia's religious police look mild-mannered and open-minded, Iran is set to ban and crack down on men sporting 'un-Islamic' hairstyles. Men will no longer be allowed to have Steven Seagal styled ponytails, longhair or looking like a greased-up New Jersey club-goer.

The country's morality police have published a catalogue of permissible 'Islamic' hairstyles which will be promoted, later this month, at the annual Modesty and Veil Festival -- which sure sounds like a lot of fun.

Just to make sure that the party is a hit, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is seeking to ban music in Iran since "it is not compatible with the highest values of the sacred regime of the Islamic Republic".

Strange as this may all sound to the Western world, Iranians actually fought a revolution in order to live like this.
