Um. Okay, I need to tell you something and you have to promise not to be mad.
A few weeks ago I built a totally sweet time machine and…
You promise not to be mad?
…okay, so I built a time machine and I was all set to do what anyone else would do with a time machine. Kill Hitler. I mean, you have to, right? It’s like visiting the Eiffel Tower when you’re in Paris. It’s just what you do.
But I wanted to practice first so I decided I’d try killing a lesser dictator for the experience points and I finally settled on Saddam Hussein.
So I went back to Iraq around 1989 and I waited for him in his bedroom with my trusty shrimping fork. But then he came in and…
Okay, seriously, you have to promise not to get mad.
See, I was all set to do it and then he just starts bursting into tears and saying how he never wanted to be a dictator and that his father pushed him into it and that he had always dreamed of being an actor during the Golden Age of Hollywood but he’d never got the chance and…I just felt so sorry for him, you know? I did.
And that’s when he bludgeoned me with the night stand and stole my time machine.
So…yeah. I may have accidentally given Saddam Hussein the ability to travel throughout space and time.
See this is why I didn’t want to tell you, I knew you’d get mad.
Look, it’s fine! I was worried too! During those fourteen years in an Iraqi prison all I could think off was “Any minute now history is going to be re-written and I’ll find myself in a parallel universe where everyone’s speaking Iraqian…Iraqean…what language do they speak in Iraq?
Anyone? Anyone? Fox News?
Really? Okay, thanks. But it didn’t happen, so eventually just decided he must have pressed the wrong button and gotten eaten by a T-Rex…
…and I went back to trying to learn the French for “Please, enough with the friggin’ electrical genital torture.”
Anyway, 2003 rolls around and after being set free by the brave men and women of the 3rd Armoured Cavalry regiment…
…I returned home, an empty shell of a husk. It was at that moment that I decided that what I needed to cheer me up was one of my favorite movies, the 1933 Marx Brokers classic Duck Soup made during the Golden Age of Hollywood.
And then, during the climactic musical number “We’re going to War!” I see amongst the crowd of bit characters…well, take a look…
Yeah. Saddam Hussein used my time machine to travel back in time and get himself a tiny singing role in a Marx Brothers Comedy. Sorry. My bad.
Quite an….interesting post, dear unshavedmouse, lol!
It was an interesting week. Really sad to hear about the last Andrews Sister.
Yes, that was a sad loss! I made a post about her passing on my blog actually.
Oh unshavedmouse, sometimes when you make a new post, it doesn’t show up in my “Reader” section somehow. Do you know why this could be? I’ve checked my settings and everything seems to be in order. I think it’s because I have a lot of subscriptions, so maybe they all don’t update/
Sorry bud, no idea why that might be. I’m not exactly the most tech savvy person if my use of Microsoft paint didn’t already give that away.
Cool, thanks anyway! I just check your blog whenever I know a new post should be up.
I will have to keep an eye out for him the next time I watch Duck Soup
Ive always wanted to go back and kill Hitler in his birth. I mean, he messed up disney and forced disney to make Never heard of ’ems….. Disney could’ve been so prosperous without the war interference….
Also he did some other stuff.
One can only assume that he picked up Otto Von Bismarck along the way and managed to get him through the multiverse to various points in time in that universe of Disney animation.
