(Ironic) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is an unintentional comedian:

An Iranian-American journalist asked him to clarify his extraordinary claim on Monday that there were no gay people in Iran, pointing out, "I know a few myself."

Given that sodomy is a crime punishable by death in Iran, it was a particular chilling offer.
