Long feared as a crazed madman with his finger on the nuclear button, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il has died at age 69.  Despite his ruthless reputation, he did possess a unique sense of humor.  For instance, he pre-ordered his headstone to read:  "I told you I was Il."

WakiLeaks: History Declassified 2000 (Vol. One) is now available on Kindle for $2.99

Compiled from Bob's newsletter "Funnyside Up" published in 2000. This is a yuck and chuckle-filled stroll down memory lane to a time before the Bush administration had inflicted its damage -- a time before the search for WMDs and Osama bin Laden.
