Weird facts about tyrannical world leaders.

Ok, I'll start...

Before killing 50,000+ Tamil fighters, Sri Lanka's President Rajapaksa worked in a Los Angeles university as a Unix Solaris Administrator.

Not sure if I'd call Bob Hawke tyrannical, but still he once admitted that fact probably did more for his popularity than anything he did in office.

But anyway, back to the game:

Radovan Karadzic was the in house psychiatrist for the Sarajevo soccer team (why a football team needs a psychiatrist is a mystery to me). His deputy Nikola Koljevic was Yugoslavias leading translators of Shakespeare into Serbo-Croatian.

As a child Pol Pot couldn't handle the sight of gore. When his dad slaughtered chickens he'd hide in the house.

I'll have a go:

President Trump wears makeup that he applies himself.

Rather than say "hey, Mr. President, lay off the orange, his staff has been known to request "orange lighting" in an attempt to hide this glaring oddity.

"Orange Man Bad" is used to mock people for thinking an Orange man is an abnormal thing.

Former British Primeminister David Cameron used a dead pigs head as a fleshlight while with his drinking buddies at The University of Oxford.

Common misconception. The correct spelling is, in fact, weird.
