Joseph Stalin To Receive International Emmy For His Outstanding Hunger Relief Efforts

NEW YORK CITY, NY—The 2020 International Emmy Awards have announced their nominees for their hotly anticipated and highly credible award ceremony this year. In addition to giving New York Governor Andrew Cuomo a leadership award for his excellent pandemic leadership and skill in not killing thousands of innocent nursing home residents, the organization has also announced another recipient: Joseph Stalin.

According to sources, Stalin will receive a posthumous award for his outstanding hunger relief efforts. In addition, he will be honored for his masterful skill in crafting a narrative that caused even the imprisoned victims of his regime to sing his praises.

"We can't exactly say that Stalin's hunger relief efforts were totally successful, but he really did try," said International Academy President & CEO, Bruce L. Paisner. "Stalin was a master at crafting a narrative. People tuned in to hear his words of wisdom, even as he starved them to death. That's a skill worthy of honor."

Stalin will not be the only world leader honored at the 2020 Emmys. Here is a comprehensive list of the other nominees:

Mikhail Gorbachev—for outstanding leadership of Chernobyl cleanup
Kim Jong Un—for groundbreaking human rights activism
Hugo Chavez—for innovations in decreasing population of feral cats
Scar the Lion—for bringing together lion and hyena in the Pride Lands
Greta Thunberg—for outstanding performance by a child actor
Gavin Newsom—for electricity management and sidewalk cleanliness in California
Joel Osteen—for scriptural accuracy
Joseph Biden—for being most "clean and articulate" president since Obama
Kamala Harris—for award-winning laugh
Lord Denethor—for outstanding stewardship of Gondor
Kathleen Kennedy—for excellent management of Star Wars franchise
King Solomon—for chastity
McDonald's—for excellence in ice cream machine maintenance
The International Emmys—for most legitimate award organization
"We admire all of these nominees -- not so much for their real-world achievements, but for their incredible ability to make it seem like they had real-world achievements," said Paisner. "We look forward to announcing the winners!"

It should be pointed out that at the same time One Donald Trump was also giving daily briefings, and the result was less people believing him than when he started, lots of crying about the coverage Cuomo was getting, and this lovely, lovely series of words.

"So I asked Bill a question some of you are thinking of if you're into that world, which I find to be pretty interesting. So, supposing we hit the body with a tremendous, whether its ultraviolet or just very powerful light, and I think you said, that hasn't been checked but you're gonna test it. And then I said, supposing it brought the light inside the body, which you can either do either through the skin or some other way, and I think you said you're gonna test that too, sounds interesting.

And I then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in one minute, and is there a way you can do something like that by injection inside, or almost a cleaning. Because you see it gets in the lungs, and it does a tremendous number on the lungs. So it'd be interesting to check that. So you're going to have to use medical doctors, but it sounds interesting to me, so we'll see. But the whole concept of the light, the way it goes in one minute, that's pretty powerful."



Uh huh, was that worthy of an Emmy? Oh ya, and Trump drew less viewers too.

So ya, lets just translate this blog post;

"Willy3411 is suffering some diaper rash because Trump didn't get an award when Trump set himself up in direct competition to a Democrat. Again."

You would think Willy3411 would be used to it after 4 years. dunno
