Is Boycotting Hominy the New "Freedom Fries" in Iran? (Yes.)

By: T.R. Slyder,

Now that Ayatollah Khamenei (pronounced: Ha meny) has taken the hard-lined fundamentalist stance against the people, and for, "The System", he has fallen out of favor with everyone not named Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Being that "Khamenei" is pronounced exactly like "Hominy", I'm anticipating a boycott of Hominy by progressive Iranians. I mean big. Like, maybe to the point where no one in Iran is eating the dried, alkili-soaked corn kernals with the hulls removed. Seriously. Can you imagine an Iran withOUT this Central American dietary staple? I can, but that's just because I'm really good at imagining, but I assume most people cannot. It's crazy. I know.

So if you are a futures trader and deal with hominy in Iran, I'd strongly recommend you taking a short position for all foreseeable deliveries.

Much like how during 9/11, it was the pinnacle of patriotism to call french fries, "Freedom fries", I think boycotting hominy will be viewed as similarly patriotic in Iran.
