Hey dictator!

Stalin’s Pipe

In Uncategorized on August 10, 2009 at 5:03 pm

While Stalinist show trials are happening in Iran, the following Stalin joke (source) is becoming very popular among Iranians and being shared with Facebook, Yahoo messenger and other social networking tools:

A delegation from his native Georgia leaves Stalin’s office after a long meeting. Stalin realizes that he cannot find his pipe and calls Dzerzhinsky to find out if anyone from the delegation took his pipe. After 30 minutes Stalin finds the pipe under the table and calls Dzerzhinsky to let the delegation go. Dzerzhinsky answers Stalin’s call: “I am sorry Comrade, but one half of the delegation already admitted that they took your pipe, and the other half died during questioning.”

The sad thing is that to Iranians these days, it sounds more like reality than just a joke.

  2. Christ . . . (to use the antiquated expression) it’s heartbreaking to hear these words.

    But don’t worry, history shows that repressionist regimes always fall. Keep up the good work.
