Iranian state television blocks German top football match because referee was a woman

“Iranian state television reportedly failed to broadcast a German top flight football match because the referee was a woman,” and she wasn’t dressed properly. “Strict rules in the Islamic Republic do not allow the broadcast of images of women showing large amounts of flesh,” in accordance with Quranic teaching (24:31, 33:59).

“The Iranian women’s football team play in hijab, long-sleeved shirts and trousers.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
