Simpsons Banned from Iran!
USA Today: According to Shargh, an independent newspaper, Mohammad Hossein Farjoo, secretary of policymaking at Iran's Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults, did not offer a specific reason for banning Bart and Homer, saying only that his agency did not want to promote the cartoon by importing Simpsons toys. He did point out that any doll that has distinguishable adult genitals, or any dolls of adults at all, are banned "because these dolls are promoters of Western culture," the AP reported.
