I wanna be a terrorist (satire)

"Dear Hollywood agents...Years of playing Hamlet and Francisco in small theater houses all over Europe have prepared me for more dynamic and meaningful parts such as hijacker, suicide bomber, kidnapper, rock-throwing fanatic, hostage-taker, insurgent, fundamentalist mullah, or the ringleader of a terrorist sleeper cell in New York City," writes Iranian satirist Siamack Baniameri. "When light hits my face at a certain angle, I look eerily like Yasser Arafat. After a night of hard drinking, I look very much like Saddam Hussein when he was pulled out of the spider hole. And with a touch of makeup, I can easily pass for Gaddafi, the Ayatollah or even Castro." (MuslimWakeUp! via LiP)
