No, not really. Well…maybe. He is a ruthless dictator who brutally represses his people, or so I’m told. And, he has a bad haircut. But, I digress. The point is I am utilizing this scarcely read blog o’mine to exercise my constitutional right to freedom of speech. A right that took a severe beating this week when Sony let the spineless movie chains dictate what films may be screened. I was looking forward to The Interview. Even Obama did nothing to let creative expression prevail. He did however concede the cold war to Cuba…but that’s probably a good thing.
Doesn’t Kim Jong Un realize it’s just a satire. His protestations are better targeted elsewhere…Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles anyone? Hitler had a better sense of humor when Charlie Chaplin released The Dictator. Oh wait, he killed 12 million people. Will they cancel the Superbowl when the Russians don’t like the way the Bears are portrayed? Well, at least we won’t have to worry about that this winter.
Uh oh!…I’ve been hacked!! The Guardians of Peace (funny how they have the same initials as the other ultra conservative, liberal bashing group known as the Grand ol’ Party (GOP)) have broken into my blog and have threatened to release by unpublished posts (e.g. List Monday: best fashion of the 80’s) unless I take down my post on Yiddish words for Penis. Well, I won’t do it. Pyongyang be damned. Pyongyang sounds like a Korean word for penis.
I will, however, stand in solidarity with those American heroes Seth Roggin and James Franco and not release another blog post until The Interview is seen by the masses. Maybe I should blog from a country with artistic freedoms…like Cuba!
