September 19, 1959

On This Date in in 1959 Nikita Khruschev, the Premier of Russia, was not allowed to visit Disneyland due to security reasons. Khrushchev reacted angrily and threw what could only be called a ‘temper tantrum’ or in the Southern vernacular a “Hissy Fit”. Leonid Brezhnev had to reassure the Premier that Eisenhower was not just being a mean poopie-head and that he could not just order the park closed to all other visitors, since it wasn’t owned by the government, but instead it was owned by Walt Disney. When Kruschev muttered that maybe Disney needed to be taught some lessons in diplomatic courtesies by the KGB, Brezhnev quickly hushed him and reminded him that the Illuminati had ears and eyes everywhere.
