back to article Iran clamps down on mullets

As part of its audacious bid to become the first nation to ban absolutely everything, Iran has reportedly taken exception to the infamous mullet, meaning footballing legend Chris Waddle will have to cancel that Tehran weekend break he was planning. Rudi Voller, too, would be well advised to street clear of the Islamic fashion …

Old news

This is old news. Iran has banned Mullets for at least 5 years, if not more.

Funnily enough from the same page:

"GODWIN

And in the wake of the Islamic referendum last Friday...

PHOTO OF THE AYATOLLAH KHOMEINI

...the Ayatollah has decided not to close all cinemas, but in future, only Islamic films will be shown. Films like 'Perda On The Orient Express', 'The Man In The Iron Mosque', and '28 Brides For 7 Brothers'"

Fail on behalf of Iran...

Religion really is the opposite of evolution.

What does it say about a country that is so backwards, they have only just reached the 80s, while everyone else is in 2010?

apart from one teeeeny technical fact

... that Islam didn't exist in AD80.

To be honest, if it keeps Dave Mustaine out of the country I'm all for banning mullets!

Well if Catholic Online is commenting on a Muslim state, of the axis of evil no less, it must be true!

I guess Ahmadinejad doesn't like Kajagogo lead singer Lemal.

His wearing of two completely independent mullets at once is more than enough to enrage the king of mullets, Billy Ray Cyrus, let alone the maddest of mullahs.

Brilliant idea!

I am ashamed to admit that I sported the famous hairstyle only as far back as 1998! It's an abomination against sense and good taste and I am glad when my hair started thinning as I got a damn good excuse to shave it all off!

While they're at it, can they come over here and get the classic Charlton Comb-Over banned too! Gregor Fischer's Baldy-Man was funny, but it's ten times sadder to see some poor sap fighting nature while a 50mph gust of wind through a tube-train window blows his 1 foot skinny bit of hair up in the air!

old news...

this was in the papers months ago (with great official pictures of valid islamic haircuts - short back and sides, no skin jobs and no mullets), just because the christian nutjobs comment on it doesnt make it newsworthy again.

......dissapointed in El Reg

Playmobil construction...

of a Mullet (pronounced Moo-lay) wearing 80's rocker trying to slip into Iran. Or this article is completely bogus.

Paris because she too laments this Brave New World where the mullet (pronounced Moo-lay) does not form the centrepiece of high-fashion

PS: @Sarah Bee - Superb retort!

He'll either need to change his vacation arrangements or face the penalty.
