Fake Canadian ad agency in Tehran "advises" on "Islamic haircut" policy

A fascinating article in the Toronto Star. Someone of influence in Iran thinks that the new "Islamic haircut" policy will be easier to sell if you stick the Canadian flag on it and tell people a Toronto-based agency headed by a Canadian educated Iranian is "advising" on it.

I guess Canadians could take this as a double-backflip compliment of some sort, but I think it means that someone in Iran thinks young, fashion-conscious Iranians are suckers. Or that the people charged with selling the policy are suckers.

The whole thing is embarrassing. What's next, Islamic tuques?
