Uncle Ben's Couscous

We have concluded George Bush is worse than James Buchanan, and thus the worst American president. Humanity now ponders the question -- who’s the worst person ever? It’s likely down to three -- Judas or Hitler or Bush? In lighter news, The American Kennel Club, acknowledging Britain’s role in Iraq, has renamed the toy poodle Tony Blair. Finally, Uncle Ben has withdrawn Instant Couscous. The idea was similar to Popeye’s Canned Spinach. Young slum-dwelling Arab men were portrayed cooking couscous, dashing to an airport, commandeering jets, flying into skyscrapers, and proclaiming “Allah is Great!” Ben withdrew the product when he realized the advertising, like cigarettes, would kill his customers. Thank you for not eating couscous!

I think that in terms of gender fairness you ought to include a woman in your list. Elizabeth Bathory of Hungary? How about Rosie O'Donnell?

Remember, women are catching up in every category! Give them a helping hand, Michael!

How about Joan of Arc? She was burnt by the English 30 May 1431. Today is her feast day.

My sister is named Joan.
