Only in America

You cannot make this shit up.
This dude is a builder of McMansions in Atlanta. His business is going bust. He has been forced to put his beloved home on the market. A home that is a scaled-down replica of the White House. Complete with an Oval Office which displays both the American and Iranian flags. Because the dude is Iranian-American.

I am a little more than embarrassed at this moment to be from Georgia.

Good eye, Essee. I wanted to see if anyone picked that up.

Dude converted to Christianity from Islam in 1995 AND has a special room in The House to perform the same ceremony for others. The House is filled with Christian tchotkes.

This is so f*cked up! I had heard of this place, but have never done a drive-by. Unbelievable. I love how the neighbors were trying to be all "yeah, such a nice family, blah, blah, blah!" When you know they are really thinking PROPERTY VALUE! down, down, down...the market in Atlanta is a disaster right now, good luck little buddy.

Hahahah. If I moved to Iran and made enough money to build a scaled down replica of their most famous building, I'd probably convert to islam.
