I Would Like One Elastic Loaf with Pepperoni, Please

Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has ordered that foreign words no longer be used. He has replaced the word 'pizza' with 'elastic loaf.'

I once heard of another country doing this with everything that started with the word 'French.' Some people tried to replace it with the word 'freedom,' which was kind of a compliment and made people who actually ate 'freedom fries' sound really stupid.

It looks like Ahmadinejad is the second coming of Kim Jong Il. Iran's president has also denied the holocaust and is relegating himself to the ranks of resounding gong. Unless of course it turns out he has nukes. Then we'll have to listen to him while we eat our elastic loaves with extra cheese.
