Another great post on the Borowitz Report:
LONDON (The Borowitz Report) – In response to the international uproar created when he reportedly compared Russian President Vladimir Putin to Hitler, His Royal Highness Prince Charles today issued the following letter of apology to the Russian people.
My dear Russians,
Yesterday, it was reported that I compared your President Putin to Hitler. If by making this comment I have in some way offended you, I am deeply sorry. Adolf Hitler was one of the horrible villains in world history, and comparing President Putin to him was uncalled for.
What I should have said, and what I say to you now, is that this Putin chap can be a bit Hitlery at times.
Let’s take, for example, his penchant for taking territory that doesn’t belong to him and then adding it to his country and so forth. Would you call that behavior Hitlery or not Hitlery? From where I sit, it’s more like something Hitler would do than something he wouldn’t do, and so the verdict must be, yes, the chap is being rather Hitlery when he does that.
And, while we’re on the subject, what about Putin’s use of tanks? Also very Hitlery. Again, let me be clear: I am not calling him Hitler—but if you think you can use tanks and not come off a tad bit Hitlery, you’re not right in the head.
Since I made my remarks, some British politicians have suggested that I abdicate my position as Prince of Wales and heir to the British throne. In other words, they believe that I do not have the right to free speech. If memory serves, back in the nineteen-thirties another chap went around trying to punish people for speaking their minds. I’m not going to name names, but if the shoe fits…
H.R.H. Prince Charles
While nursing my humongous crush on Kim Soo Hyun I managed to get liangze to watch all of his dramas :P from You from another star, the Moon embracing the Sun (which we talked about at his grandma’s house yesterday and discovered his aunty and cousins have also watched it! I am turning into a Singaporean aunty!), and now, Dream High. :P One thing I can’t stand about the way he watches Korean dramas is how he likes to watch it at 1.5 – 2 times the original speed, since we’re both reading subtitles anyway it doesn’t matter to him that they are speaking inhumanly fast or that the music is different or all subtlety is lost. He just wants to get over all those “looking” scenes (where the various actors look at each other with tear filled eyes without actually saying anything or contributing to the plot) as quickly as possible. Nuanced micro-acting is not something he has learnt to appreciate yet. Or the fineness of Kim Soo Hyun’s eyes.
LZ has however fallen for our dear Miss Sushi (or IU) in Dream High because she was a little tubby and had cute black glasses and also has really cute mannerisms. To repay the favour I’ll watch two of her dramas with him (I like her too, but definitely not in the same way as I like KSH).
So the drama round up of things to watch next would be..
1) Sungkyunkwan Scandal
2) Bel Ami
3) Lee Soon Shin is the best
4) My girlfriend is a gumiho
