The offending memes. When it comes to thin scaly skin Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is the poster boy for pussy, which is something fairly interesting when supposedly this guy has balls enough to go up against Putin.

Dr. Bilgin Ciftci, whom was fired from his hospital job as a result of the incident, faces up to 2 years in prison for sharing memes that compare Erdogan to Gollum from Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.

Apparently Erdogan is up late at night fretting over the images, and there’s a special law in Turkey (the same country that also banned Minecraft) to protect the President’s feelings, where it has actually become an illegal act to insult the President.If you were so strong and powerful, you wouldn’t be bothered by memes.

Really, Erdogan? Are you the President of Turkey or the University of Missouri?

Just sayin’.
