Trump seems more like an orange tabby to me.

Is it a sign of the times that I wasn't quite sure this was satire until halfway through the second paragraph?

/D2S calls him Rocket Man because he can't remember the guy's name.
//Heard an ABC radio announcer refer to Kim 2 Jong instead of Kim Il Jong

Kim may be a psycopath and a ruthless dictator, but Honky Cat is farking solid.

Momzilla59: Is it a sign of the times that I wasn't quite sure this was satire until halfway through the second paragraph?

I assumed it was totally real when I saw the headline at the footer of another thread. Only realized otherwise when I came to the top of the Politics tab and saw the tag.

/Sounded like Kim awkwardly trying to do an American insult, like a parent trying to snap back at their teenage children with a bad handling of current teen lingo
//Sorta the opposite of Baghdad Bob's Iraqi culture-specific insults, where he said the Americans would be greeted with bullets and shoes

I'm usually not that crazy about Borowitz, but "especially 'Tiny Dancer," is the funniest thing I'm going to read today.

Honky Tonk Cat always screamed to me as a furry anthem; which is why I would always flip to another station when that song came on.

/Give it a second and the association will never leave your brain.

And it seems to me you shot your Dong
Like a huge ICBM
Never knowing where it'd come down
In the vast ocean
And I would have liked to have blown you
To little bits
Your regime burned out long before
Your luncheon ever did

"Please be satire, please be satire, please be..."
2017-09-20 01:25:36 PM  
Of course, from the album that gave us "Honky Cat" and "Rocket Man" (Honky Chateau) comes the song that Trump really ought to adopt as his own...

"I think I'm going to kill myself".

I can think of like 20-30 farkers off the top of my head that are funnier than Borowitz.  I swear this guy is the fricking Dave Frishberg of satire pieces.

Rocket Man is really the best insult Trump's got for Kim?  Crooked Hillary was pretty lame, but Rocket Man is a freaking awesome nickname.  If I were Kim, I wouldn't even be mad.  I'd get a red trucker hat with "Rocket Man" emblazoned on the front and the Korean characters for "Rocket Man" on the side and I'd wear that farker in every public appearance I make from now on.  My jacket would say "I'm the Rocket Man, biatch" on the back.  It'd become part of my title.  "Please rise for our Glorious Leader, Kim Jung Un, Chairman of the Workers Party of Best Korea and the Rocket Man."

/I can't believe I'm giving supportive ideas to the dictator of North Korea, but here we are
