The Twitter Revolutioning

Me: Did you hear about what's going on in Iran?

Dave: No, what's that?

Me: Well they just had an election and the candidate that was supposed to win was declared the loser. It was most likely vote fraud. The incumbent stole the election.

Dave: Well why would they do that?

Me: To stay in power. The incumbent president is the preferred candidate of the supreme leader of Iran.

Dave: Well how can they get away with that? That ain't right. It doesn't make sense.


Radio: Thousands have taken to the streets in Iran despite a call from the supreme leader that such rallies are illegal. "Death to the dictator," the green-clad protesters chanted.

Dave: Why is that? Is it because Obama's black?

Me: What the fuck does that have to do with anything?

Dave: Because if a black man can make it in a white man's world, anything's possible. Well, it's not really a white man's world anymore.

Me: Oh really?

Dave: Yeah they know that anything is possible. That's why there's so many countries revolutioning their governments.

Me: What other countries are revolutioning their governments?

Dave: Lots of them.

Me: How many?

Dave: How the fuck am I supposed to know?
