Shawn Esfahani fled Iran’s Islamic Revolution
 as a teen and came to America. He has been successful here: he owns a
 “mega” car dealership in Daphne, Ala. But a competitor, Bob Tyler
 Toyota in Pensacola, Fla., just over the state border, started calling
 Esfahani’s dealership “Taliban Toyota” and told potential car buyers
 that going to the Alabama dealer helped “fund terrorism.” Esfahani sued
 for slander, and a jury has awarded him $2.5 million in compensatory
 damages and $5 million in punitive damages. Bob Tyler declined to
 comment on the verdict, but Esfahani did. “It’s very hurtful,” he said.
 “When you live in this country, you can’t believe someone would accuse
 you of those things just to sell a car.”

A THOUGHT: Heck: they’ll do that just to get a vote.

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
