The law would also set a dress code for all Iranians, requiring them to wear "standard Islamic garments.”
Uh oh ... never mind, carry on:

"He admitted to playing with matches and accidentally starting the fire," Hecht said in a statement.
I'm thinking the Dumbass-o-sphere should simply order their "Oh, crap, we fucked up again" cards from Office Depot in lots of 500. It would save everyone just buckets of time, don't you think?
