The personage we love to hate, nearly as much as John Kerry
First: McTrip – “NUKLAHOMA” (McTrip prefaced it with – One for the archives : a rare snap taken during rehearsals of the writer-producer-director-leading male singer, Kim Jong Ã¢€œJohnnyÃ¢€ Il, and the cast of the guaranteed runaway [no, runaway even faster] Pyongyang hit musical :- )
Second: Laurence Simon – Despite the protests of his wife and the Central Committee, Kim Jong-Il did what the voices in his head told him, and he plowed under the crops to build a concentration camp for political dissidents. ThatÃ¢€™s when the ghost of his father came out of the wheat so they could play catch with Harry TrumanÃ¢€™s bleached skull.
Third: Confederate Yankee – And after 40 years of wandering, it slowly dawned upon the crowd that he really didnÃ¢€™t have a clue where the Promised Land was.
Honorable Mention and the rest are under the Fold
Scott P – Pensive Korean television executives monitor the reactions of a bemused Kim Jong-Il at the taping of the pilot episode of “Korean Fear Factor: Minefield.”
LJD – “Idiots! I said weapons, not wheat!” “Now where can we hide all of this before the people see it”
ralph hupp – a leader outstanding in his field.

RightViews.com – “I knew it! If I build it, they will come. . .”
Stormy Dragon – “The Field of Schemes”
Bithead – Wins the best Novelette on a tyrannical dictator (Which will not be repeated here, or probably anywhere)
Rodneys Bottom of The Barrel
We study Nuclear Science,
We love critical masses,
‘Gotta crazy world leader,
Who wears dark glasses.
Bomb production’s going great,
And the missle’s flying better.
We’re refining it right,
High Plutonium Grade,
‘Countryside is so bright,
We Gotta wear shades.
