LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Hundreds of pilgrims descended upon a makeshift mosque set up in a field off Interstate 40 early Saturday to welcome Ayatollah Mugsy, the mysterious leader of Pug Life Ministries.
After waiting in line for several hours, many of the pilgrims said they were disappointed that the mercurial cleric only made a 20-second appearance.
"It was raining, and the ayatollah doesn't like baths," said a source with the ministry who asked to remain anonymous. "Plus, he had to get to Graceland before closing time."
