Danish cartoonists have a little fun with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

At first glance, it looks as though it’s supporting Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, doesn’t it? But it’s not. Not really. If you haven’t figured out why yet, you’ll see below the fold:

From MSNBC:

COPENHAGEN – A Danish art group that pokes fun at world leaders targeted Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday by placing an advertisement in a Tehran newspaper with an insulting hidden message.

Beneath a picture of the president, a series of apparently sympathetic statements were arranged such as “Support his fight against Bush” and “Iran has the right to produce nuclear energy.” The ad was attributed to “Danes for World Peace.”

However, the first letters of each phrase, when read from top to bottom, spell out “S-W-I-N-E.”

Crude, but in this case appropriate, given Ahmadinejad’s Holocaust denial. Hopefully, because it’s not making fun of the Prophet Mohammed, there won’t be rioting in the streets of Tehran over this.
