If Historical Dictators Went to College…

9 Dec 2010

We’ve already seen cartoon characters go to college, but ever wonder how dictators would fit into today’s stereotypes? Of course you have (so did we), but Middlebury College student Hae-Song Jung went so far as to get it down on paper, one fateful night while “studying for exams.” Though Jung had seen the popular comic Hipster Hitler before, her inspiration goes further than that:

“My brother and I kind of jokingly call each other names, and I usually use some kind of variation of ‘bro’, like bro-tato chip, broski, etc.” says Jung. “One time I called him Broseph Stalin, and I thought, ‘Hey, Broseph Stalin, Hipster Hitler, that’s kind of funny.’ So I started to think of other plays on dictators’ names.”

The end results were so funny, we just had to post them here. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Broseph Stalin, the original inspiration, complete with Keystone Light Vodka and Biddie Bushkas.

Hipster Hitler, you probably haven’t heard of him.

Pol Pothead chills out.

Madam Hussein: check out these WMDs.

Be sure to check back for any further inspiration Hae-song might have, and in the meantime, be sure to follow her Tumblr.
