Sometimes the Internet offers odd combinations

And this morning I found an odd one indeed. Hitler, Zuckerberg and Stalin, who each made Time’s MAN OF THE YEAR:

Let me be crystal clear I did not set this combination up, I simply found it and found it curious. Maybe such combinations point to the trivial value of Time’s nomination of a Man of the Year. The connection between these three is a bit of trivial interest, but does indicate how some people do “free association” and then post such on the Web.

I did kind of like the Borovitz report that Time made a startling discovery in finding that Zuck was a man/person and not just some online abberration!

I can’t deny Time’s right to name whoever they prefer

But after Zuckerberg, consider the other nonentities who were on their list for Person of the Year:

Among Time editors, the Tea Party was the runner-up, followed by Julian Assange, Hamid Karzai, and the Chilean miners. Zuckerberg is the second-youngest Person of the Year, after Charles Lindbergh in 1927.

From the Borowitz Report:

In Controversial Decision, Time Magazine Calls Mark Zuckerberg a Person

Thousands Protest Designation

In my mind this headline doesn’t sound too farfetched!
