What do you do when you’re in the middle of promoting a movie about a selfish, egomaniacal dictator, and then a real-life selfish, egomaniacal dictator dies? Release an in-character statement eulogizing your friend, doy. Here’s what General Aladeen of The Dictator has to say about Kim Jong Il’s death:
OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM HIS EXCELLENCY ADMIRAL GENERAL ALADEEN - SUPREME LEADER, ALL TRIUMPHANT GENERAL AND CHIEF OPTHAMOLOGIST OF PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF WADIYAI am saddened to learn of the passing of my dear friend Kim Jong-Il. Our thoughts go out to his wife and 813 children. “K-Jo” was a great leader, good friend and average double’s badminton partner. He died as he lived, in 3-inch lifts. An extraordinary man, he did so much to spread compassion, wisdom and uranium throughout the world.On behalf of myself, Ahmadinejad, Chavez and Newt Gingrinch, we would like to welcome his son, Kin Jong Un into the “Axis of Evil.”
A moving and appropriate tribute. May his height-defying shoes and middling badminton skills live on in the hearts of his admirers.
