In Iran you take your life in your hands to even publically criticize the government, but two protesters went even further by physically confronting the nation's madman president. And it was all captured on video.

The Daily Mail reports Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was riding in an open-topped SUV when an angry old man starting screaming, "I'm retired. I'm hungry." He banged on the hood and windshield before he was dragged away.

Not to be deterred, a young woman then climbed onto the hood and walked right up to Ahmadinejad. She was treated much better than the old man, though -- after exchanging words she climbed into the vehicle and joined Ahmadinejad.
