Iran puts its head in the sandwich

In case you missed it, the Scotsman brings us a story from Iran that has the clear potential to escalate, perhaps feeding into Tehran's nuclear negotiations. Iran, it seems, has made a pitch for a Guinness Book of Records entry for the world's biggest ostrich sandwich. Of course, there was a hitch in Iran's quest for global supremacy: just before the tape measures were drawn out to measure the 1.5 km sandwich, a voracious group of Tehranis raced in and devoured the giant snack.

The big question remains: will the video footage of the sandwich-feast be enough to secure Iran's claim to the world's biggest ostrich sandwich or will the diabolical, imperialistic forces of Western hegemony conspire to rob Iran once again of its rightful place on the world stage?
