June 3, 1989

On June 3, 1989, Iran’s spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, died in Tehran. Upon entering the afterlife, he was immediately provided with his 72 virgins. Unfortunately for Khomeini, they were all men who had lived in their grandmothers’ basements and listened to Rush Limbaugh on the radio and were fans of the Philadelphia Phillies. They also had hairy backs and bragged about how their hot girl friends were from Canada and that’s why no one had ever met them. Sometimes you get exactly what you deserve.
