Time Magazine’s “Man of the Year 1979”
In 1979, Time magazine made Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini their Man of the Year. My friends and I didn’t think that was right, so we took a copy of that issue of Time, some scissors, glue sticks, and a stack of adult magazines, and made our own tribute to Ruhollah Khomeini.
We photocopied a bunch of them and hung them up around the University of Michigan campus. Professor Edward Parmentier allowed the one we placed on his office door to remain there for several months.
I wish I still had a copy of the other flyer we created with the title, “Suck my weenie, Khomeini!” It looked just as you might imagine it would look.
