Persepolis

My obsession with Iran is reaching new heights; especially now that I have finished reading the charming, funny, and sad Persepolis. This memoir tells the story of a well-to-do young girl growing up in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution. The story is told equally well with words and images.

I see this picture and it reminds me of paul. And i'm reminded of his vicious and barbaric AOE ways: he's up to no good for sure. I bet he erecting a hoarde of barracks right outside our castle walls as he speaks.

I bet he's chatting with todd, luring him with promises of friendliness and unlimited cigarettes; and building up his wealth trading with kim-jon-trudeau

and then there's taggart, the al quaeda of AOE, mucking everything up for everyone.
