Gem of the Week: U.N. Elects Iran to Commission on Women’s Rights (Seriously!)

The United Nations, that august body of the world’s great statesmen, has decided in its infinite wisdom to elect Iran, yes, Iran, to its Commission on the Status of Women, a committee charged with the mission of worldwide “gender equality and advancement of women.”

Snapping into action, Iran immediately announced it would be leading the charge on various cutting edge women’s rights issues around the world.  Top of the agenda: henceforth, all public stonings and lashings of immodest women will only be permitted on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with severe beatings to take place on Fridays. 

Next up for the United Nations: North Korea to head the new U.N. Task Force on Human Rights in Emerging Democracies.  Keep up the good work, U.N.!
