2 Mullets are illegal in Iran

I wonder why - Randomator

Well, of course it's illegal in Iran because Iran is an Islamic republic country. If instead of Imam Khomeini the king was in Iran it wasn't illegal. Actually I must tell that many people use mullets in Iran illegal and no body finds out. In every party you go in Iran you see every body using mullets.

They were illegal 30 years ago I'm from Iran and I have a mullet

So Elvis couldn't have flushed himself to Iran
