Subject: Axis of Evil
"In Speech, Bush Calls Iraq, Iran and North Korea 'Axis of Evil"
-- N.Y.Times, 1/30/02
Sudan, Serbia Form "Axis of Somewhat Evil";
  Other Nations Start Own Clubs
BEIJING: ( - Bitter after being snubbed for membership in  the "Axis of Evil," Libya, China, and Syria today announced they had  formed the "Axis of Just as Evil," which they said would be way eviler 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 wicked. 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 became a game of geopolitical  chairs. Sudan, and Serbia said 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 Olympics; Canada, Mexico, and Australia formed the Axis of Nations  That Are Actually Quite Nice But Secretly Have Nasty Thoughts About  America, while Spain, Scotland, and New Zealand established the Axis of  Countries That Be Allowed to Ask 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 axes, 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.
