The Honorary Doctor

Sometimes you see photos that were faked. Sometimes, you see photos you wish were faked.The Khatami arrowed in this picture is the former president of Iran, who has been visiting this country. The Iranian Rights website has made this image available, and asked people to spread it as widely as possible.

I have looked at it closely and it seems legit. In which case, I wish this photograph was faked:

It's Khatami at Chatham House.

Why do you think he's smiling?

P.S. I went to St Andrews University, so I can't bring myself to explain the reason for this post's title.

I don't have a copy bigger than 310x460 but the Iranian Rights people might.
