Axis of Evil Wannabees

*Axis of Evil Wannabees*
by William Marlatt

“Bitter after being snubbed for membership in the “Axis of Evil”, Libya,
China and Syria today announced that they had formed the “Axis of Just as
Evil”, which they said would be more evil than that stupid Iran-Iraq-North
Korea axis President Bush warned of in his State of the Union address.

“Axis of Evil members, however, immediately dismissed the new Axis as
having, for starters, a really dumb name. “Right. They are just as evil . .
. in their dreams!” declared North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. “Everybody
knows we’re the best evils . . . best at being evil . . . we’re the best.”

“Diplomats from Syria denied they were jealous over being excluded, although
they conceded they did ask if they could join the Axis of Evil. “They told
us it was full,” said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“An axis can’t have more than three countries”, explained Iraqi President
Saddam Hussein. “This is not my rule, it’s tradition. In World War II you
had Germany, Italy, and Japan in the evil Axis. So, you can only have three,
and a secret handshake. Ours is wickedly cool.”

“International reaction to Bush’s Axis of Evil declaration was swift, as
within minutes, France surrendered. Elsewhere, peer-conscious nations
rushed to gain triumvirate status in what has become a game of geopolitical
chairs. Cuba, Sudan and Serbia announced that they had formed the “Axis of
Somewhat Evil”, forcing Somalia to join with Uganda and Myanmar in the “Axis
of Occasionally Evil”, while Bulgaria, Indonesia and Russia established the
“Axis of Not So Much Evil Really as Just Generally Disagreeable….”

“With the criteria suddenly expanded and all the desirable clubs filling up,
Sierra Leone, El Salvador, and Rwanda applied to be called the “Axis of
Countries That Aren’t the Worst But Certainly Won’t Be Asked to Host the

“Canada, Mexico and Australia formed the “Axis of Nations That Are Actually
Quite Nice But Secretly Have Some Nasty Thoughts About America”, while
Scotland, New Zealand and Spain established the “Axis of Countries That Want
Sheep to Wear Lipstick”. “That’s not a threat, really, just something we
like to do”, said Scottish Executive First Minister Jack McConnell.

“While wondering if the other nations of the world weren’t perhaps making
fun of him, a cautious Bush granted approval for most axis, although he
rejected the establishment of the “Axis of Countries Whose Names End in
‘Guay”, accusing one of its members of filing a false application. Officials
from Paraguay, Uruguay, and Chadguay denied the charges.

“Israel, meanwhile, insisted it didn’t want to join any Axis, but privately
world leaders said that’s only because no one asked them.”



  1. So where does “Dr. Evil” fit into the whole scheme of things?

  2. Yeah. 7 years later, Bush still hasn’t addressed that. Personally, I’m a little disappointed.
