Ever since the lovely Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the evil international organization UNFCCC gave her world domination speech in Brussels, people have been remarking on how “visibly evil” she appeared. In fact, with her piercing, humorless eyes and Mao-inspired dress jacket, she looked like an evil villainess from a science fiction movie. Here is another photo of her in the same outfit, taken after the speech, I think, compared to a Gollum-like otter. I couldn’t compare her to an actual Gollum photo, because the resemblance gave me instant nightmares, so I cartooned it up a bit to save you from the same horror.
As I was desperately trying to stop thinking about Christiana Figueres being in charge of the planet, it occurred to me that quite a lot of politicians closely resemble classic villains from the James Bond films. They seem to almost be doing it on purpose. I put together just a few examples. See if you can tell which is a Bond villain and which is a bona fide politician wrecking the world for real.
This is a tough one, obviously. One of these ladies is shoe-lance-weilding Rosa Klebb (played by Lotte Lenya) in From Russia With Love, and the other is Senator Barbara Boxer. Enchanting.
I know what you’re going to say. These are both former Toronto mayor Rob Ford, right? But, in fact, one is Gert Fröbe playing the title role in Goldfinger. Which one is which? Hard to tell.
I’m thinking… Geez, I can’t tell. They both look equally evil.
Finally, an easy one. Clearly the one on the left is young President Barry Soetoro and the more masculine person on the right is Grace Jones in the role of May Day in A View to a Kill. Quite the same pensive expression, though. They seem to be thinking about the same thing. Probably weed.
UPDATE: Whoa! The super-villain thing is on everyone’s mind! Dianny just did this one today showing Barack’s true role as lap-cat to the Caliphate. Well done, Dianny!
