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".

The English-language Tehran Times, the conservative daily that printed the half-page ad, had apparently not detected the hidden message. But its impact is likely to be limited as the paper has a circulation of only a few thousand.

“We thought we would poke fun at Ahmadinejad because we don’t think he’s very liberal or sensitive,” said Jan Egesborg, a member of the art group Surrend.

“We think he represents an extreme ideology,” he said.

The Tehran Times’ editor said the group had presented its advertisement as an act of solidarity with Iran and contrition for last year’s publication in a Danish newspaper of cartoons seen by many Muslims as insulting the Prophet Mohammad. More than 50 people died in protests across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

“This group deceived the Tehran Times,” Parviz Esmaili told Reuters. “Unfortunately, this incident will only cause more hatred against Danes; even against those (Danes) who respect other cultures.”

Everyone in the picture is taking the escalator to get to the exercise club instead of climbing the stairs.

They go to the fitness club to excersize there, not in the stairs...

To quote Denis Leary;

That's ironic.
I'm American.
I don't get why an escalator that prevents lazy fat fucks from walking up stairs to a fitness center is ironic. I personally go to a fitness center to watch bouncing boobies. I don't go there to exercise. The escalator is for people like me.

Yes, isn't it ironic, don't you think?

Oh wait, she's Canadian, nevermind.

She's more idiotic.

Apparently, in Canadia, "inconvenient" = "ironic".
