Time's Person Of The Year

in palnet •  7 months ago  (edited)

So, what does it take to become person of the year?

Time Person Of The Year (Wikipedia)

person of the year 1983-1940
Well.. the lines are kinda blurred...

1938's person of the year caused a holocaust and a world war after getting announced "person of the year".

While 1938's person of the year was a fascist dictator, 1939's person of the year was leader of the USSR's communist party. And was not a dictator.

In a bizarre turn of events, 1940's person of the year is at war with 1938's man of the year. How does this work? Is it like a heavyweight title or something?


Rather ironically, only 10 years prior, TIME had announced a modern, universal symbol for peace as their man of the year...


Over the next few decades, we will see a number of corrupt politicians make it as TIME's person of the year:


The nixon administration (twice (in a row)). He actually got nominated during the Watergate scandal so good job there TIME mate.


Impeached for sexual harassment and various other sex scandals.


This deplorable scumbag.


The man who single-handedley commandeered the whole of Russia with his mates, making himself into possibly the richest, most powerful person on earth.


A well known reptile with plans for world domination.


Vlads American pen-pal.


In 1982, the person of the year wasn't even a person.


In conclusion

Do not trust a TIME magazine editor as a good judge of character.

I am running Pocket-JS confirmer code.

Plenty of other reasons to dunk on bill than a phony sex scandal, but otherwise well said!

And the same goes for many in this list I suppose 😂
