Some months ago, a little boy appeared in a live children TV show, but little he knew he was going to be the symbol of honesty and truth in Iran.
When the host asked the audience to name some of the activities they do on their own, Farnood, among others, innocently raised his hand.
The microphone approached him and he said, “When I go to the bathroom, I wash my own wee wee.”
Well, as you might not know, Iran is an Islamic country and since one cannot use such vulgar language on national TV, the host immedialty washed Farnood’s wee wee for him and said, “Oh, no, no, children should never turn the washing machine on their own!”
The thirty-second clip captured and recorded by many of Iranians, made it around the world.
Farnood’s Facebook page was said to have more likes than Iran’s Supreme Leader’s and Farnood was named “Farnood-e-Rastgoo” or “the truthful Farnood.”
To this day, his image appears on Iranian blogs and websites and he is known for his honesty and truthfulness in a country where the truth seems to be the last thing ever told!
