why does the words on the back of his shirt keep changing?
I think Danziger’s just poking a little fun at the official government title for Kim Jong-Il. After all, he couldn’t be president as his father was officially the “Eternal President”.
Jeff, tsk tsk – it’s spelled aphrodisiac.
And what a little twerp that guy is to be leader of millions of people. Like Henry VI, for instance, or even better, Henry VIII. I mean, the western nations have had leader-twerps, too, like the leader of the US for eight long years. Just past.
From Randy Newman’s “A Few Words In Defense of Our Country”:
I’d like to say a few words
In defense of our country
Whose people aren’t bad nor are they mean
Now the leaders we have
While they’re the worst that we’ve had
Are hardly the worst this poor world has seen
Let’s turn history’s pages, shall we?
Take the Caesars for example
Why within the first few of them
They were sleeping with their sister
Stashing little boys in swimming pools
And burning down the City
And one of ‘em, one of ‘em
Appointed his own horse Consul of the Empire
That’s like vice president or something
That’s not a very good example, is it?
But wait, here’s one, the Spanish Inquisition
They put people in a terrible position
I don’t even like to think about it
Well, sometimes I like to think about it
Just a few words in defense of our country
Whose time at the top
Could be coming to an end
Now we don’t want their love
And respect at this point is pretty much out of the question
But in times like these
We sure could use a friend
Men who need no introduction
King Leopold of Belgium. That’s right.
Everyone thinks he’s so great
Well he owned The Congo
He tore it up too
He took the diamonds, he took the gold
He took the silver
Know what he left them with?
