If Human History Were TV Show


I found a funny but interesting meme on Facebook and shared it to my author page there. One of my author friends then posted a link to someone who wrote a tongue in cheek blog post about TV and World War II and how unbelievable it would be if it were a fictional show (or even book).

Here is the meme (and the rest is below)


And here is a couple of quotes from the blog:

“Let’s start with the bad guys. Battalions of stormtroopers dressed in all black, check. Secret police, check. Determination to brutally kill everyone who doesn’t look like them, check. Leader with a tiny villain mustache and a tendency to go into apopleptic rage when he doesn’t get his way, check.”
