Kim Debates Himself

Three days after his triumphant return from Singapore, Kim Jong Un visits his dentist’s office for cleaning and a checkup. Under the glare of three security agents the dentist lifts a syringe, smiles, and says, “Just a little Novocain.” “Why Novocain for cleaning?” says one of the tough guys. “The Dear Leader usually has some […]

Julius Caesar v. Benito Mussolini

This was a hard ticket to get and a good seat eventually cost the equivalent of ten million bucks but people would’ve paid more to sit in the remodeled Colosseum when Benito Mussolini and Julius Caesar finally got it on. Both leaders, egomaniacal to the core, tried to dictate details of time travel, fight purses, […]

Benito Mussolini Reviews Vincere

They wouldn’t have made the movie Vincere in Italy when I was the Duce. If they tried, you know what I’d have done. The Duce did not permit unflattering articles, photos, speeches, or thoughts, and no one save a deranged and masochistic individual would have even contemplated thrashing me in a feature film. Ironicially, in […]
