In these three newspaper columns, an Iranian political satirist envisions government hacking, the state of relations between Iran and the United States, and the position of social media --
Citizen participation.
The situation in this country is so good that you suddenly feel like you are hurting the country.
No matter who coffee cup you read in your daily column, the editorial board and publishers of the newspaper have to rinse it out to prevent the situation from getting worse in the country.
So to avoid offending anyone or anything, we will look at two situations at the same time, one is relevant and the other is irrelevant.
About what people are thinking when someone takes the garbage to the bin in the corner of the alley, he wants to know if his garbage is guilty if it happens to catch fire like the night before.
He doubted whether his crime was obvious.
He wondered if it was a violation of public order.
He wondered if he would point his finger at him in tomorrow\'s news, with a red line hanging on his face.
Then he replied, \"How do we know?
\"When someone turns on his lights on the street, he thinks he\'s in the middle of a soft revolution.
When someone is going to call out the window at 10m.
In order for his children to stop playing in the alley and buy soda, he wanted to know if he had participated in a civil protest.
When someone blew a balloon for his child\'s birthday party, the balloon happened to be green and he wanted to know if he was fighting the country.
When someone calls a foreigner
He wanted to know if he was interfering with national security and his headquarters was on Persian television to ask for pop songs.
So the country is in such a good position that people are freed from \"espionage phobia\" and feel that they are engaged in espionage for Britain and the United States (
Recently for the Germans.

Editor\'s note: \"Completely harmless\" column from Shargh newspaper 1847,10 months 2.
Tehran peh Missaghi, editor of Adam Seth, translated the Tehran translation of Persian to the three questions of the translation of intercultural humor by Poupeh MissaghiQ is particularly challenging.
What difficulties did you encounter in translating these newspaper columns? How do you solve these difficulties?
The game of translating language and writing is a major challenge.
For example, Pouria suggested a form of relationship (in theUS-Iranrelations)
Based on Persian proverbs
This proverb can be translated into meaning, but it loses its word game and the entry will become meaningless.
If the proverb is translated literally, then it does not convey the meaning of it.
We discussed it and finally deleted that entry.
Other questions are sentences with literary and cultural references that English readers do not know.
I translate them to focus instead of using references, which is pointless for most English readers.
Q: The New York Times quoted myrgangana as saying: \"I think humor will be successfully expressed when the translator is laughing.
\"What did PouriaAlami write to make you laugh?
A black humor that brings stupidity and absurdity to political and related social issues.
However, I am not entirely sure whether my smile on these texts means that American readers will laugh as well;
So before finalizing the selection of the text, I discussed this with Adam (
Editing of pieces)
Look at him, a person who is not familiar with culture and language, what it feels like to them.
Q: Is it possible to fully convey the humor in the original text, or is something missing in the translation?
A. I think choosing works, the work we choose to do, plays an important role in the success of these translations.
Removing some of the elements in the original text in the translation, or re-creating them, may be inevitable, as in any form of translation, but I feel that the English reader will still feel humorous, the intention of the author is still realized.
Pouria Alami is an ironic writer who entered the world of journalists at the age of seventeen.
He published four books.
Iran\'s Islamic Ministry of Culture and Guidance declined to publish five other books.
For the past six years, he has been writing daily political satire columns for various reformist newspapers, except for 30-
He spent one day in prison in Evin alone last year.
Now he is released on bail, waiting for trial, and writing \"completely harmless\" pay for Shargh.
His most popular column is reading coffee cups.
E. Melli, the \"sofa\" of Etemad, is now \"completely harmless.
Poupeh Missaghi is a writer and translator.
She is a PhD candidate for creative writing at the University of Denver.
Adam Seth is a writer and editor.
He is a PhD candidate at the University of Denver.
