Dictators on Parade

Each year America's last bastion of quality journalism, Parade Magazine, puts out a list of the year's worst dictators. Kim Jong-Il of North Korea unseated Omar Al-Bashir of Sudan for the No. 1 spot.

I like to think that all the dictators get together for a party where they unveil the new rankings. Can you imagine how pissed Iran's Sayyid Ali Khamenei is that he fell from third to seventh? I can just hear him complaining "How many public executions must a man orchestrate to remain in the Top 5?!? C'mon!"

I understand that Fidel Castro was so ticked off he's not even on the list anymore (his brother Raul is No. 18) that he is actually getting out of dictatoring altogether.

I wonder if they're all going to get together again for Fidel's retirement party. I imagine it's like the scene in Austin Powers when they try to kill Mustafa, but with cake and refreshments.
