Ayatollah: (n) a Shiite religious leader in Iran.
It’s not that I want to use the word more. You can feel free to change the term if you so desire.
I believe an asshole is anyone who promotes his or her peculiarity as making them better than other people.
Whenever I see pictures of clerics of all religions, wearing their costumes and establishing their dominance through facial hair, robes and funny hats, the first thought that comes to my mind is “asshole”–especially when they begin to espouse that their particular garb and gab is supreme.
Here’s what I think: if you need a costume to promote your ideas and it’s not Halloween, you are officially an asshole.
Because my understanding is that the great men of history, who truly had something important to say, were very careful to blend in with the masses, using a common head and a common thread instead of standing afar off and yelling extreme disapproval at the top of their lungs.
So to all the priests, preachers, mullahs, ayatollahs and dollies who apparently breed llamas, I pronounce you irrelevant.
You will remain irrelevant as long as you insist that you have come to save the world, which generally speaking … you choose to condemn.
