I love things that reference obscurely other elements of pop culture. It’s why I loved The Simpsons when it was truly great.

Second Ally To The Right, And Straight On ‘Til Morning
In his recent speech on Iraq, Bush said “We thank the 36 nations who have troops on the ground in Iraq and the many others who are helping that young democracy.”
This assertion–that there are as many as 36 nations aiding in the Iraqi war–has some calling the President delusional. Aside from the US and the United Kingdom, who else is really involved?

Poland (don’t forget!)
Bosnia and Herzegovina
United Federation of Planets
Where The Wild Things Are
Mario World 2-3
Bush added that these allies are also aiding us in our struggle against Eastasia, with whom we have always been at war.
