With YouTube banned there since the disputed election of 2009, Iran recently launched its own video-sharing website called “Mehr” (the Farsi word for “affection”), which only shows government-approved video clips. What do you think?

“Anything will be better than the huge disappointment that is Iranian Pornhub.”

“Wow, I can’t believe the domain ‘’ was still available.”

“You know, it would probably be a good thing if our government banned YouTube, too.”
