From the Associated Press:
TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has ordered government and cultural bodies to use modified Persian words to replace foreign words that have crept into the language, such as "pizzas" which will now be known as "elastic loaves," state media reported Saturday.
I guess that would make us "Slice: America's Favorite Elastic Loaf Weblog!"
Update: On a whim, Slice decided to register "elasticloaves.com" as a joke, but someone has beaten us to the punch. According to a WHOIS query, the domain was registered on July 29, the day this story appeared. Is there an Iranian pizza blog in the works? Only time will tell...
