November 25, 1970

On November 25, 1970, author Yukio Mishima and a compatriot committed seppuku (a form of Japanese ritual suicide by disembowelment) after their unsuccessful coup attempt to take over Japan. Exactly 50 years later in America, when unelected President Donald Trump’s coup attempt fell flat, he was told what Yukio Mishima did to preserve his honor. It is said that Donald Trump turned to Rudy Giuliani and said, “Hey Rudy, I’ve still got those bone-spurs since the Vietnam War, could you do that seppekookoo thing for me?”

I was going to make a "Pinky and the Brain" joke about Trump and Giuliani, but neither of them makes sense as the Brain. If you don't know what you want to do tonight, Share this post to try to take over the world.
