A blogger visiting Tehran snapped some photos of the mural work that adorns the outside of the former U.S. embassy building (aka, “Great Satan Central Command”).
One photo stood out among the rest. Notice that the mural (bottom left) bears an uncanny resemblance to the artwork on the cover of L. Ron Hubbard’s turgid science-fiction novel, The Invaders Plan.
Looks like a classic case of copyright infringement to me. So, in the interest of promoting international goodwill, I have some free advice for the Iranian government: Paint over that mural as soon as possible. I know you’re concerned about a possible attack by the United States or Israel, but you’ve crossed a dangerous line here: You’re fucking with the Scientologists. They will harass you with endless lawsuits. And it won’t end there. Next, you’ll start getting mail offering you “Free Personality Tests.”
Trust me on this. The followers of Xenu have even less of a sense of humor than the mullahs.
