Cheney vs. The Penguin

The similarities between Dick Cheney and Oswald Cobblepot, aka the Penguin from Batman Returns, should be common knowledge at this point. I mean,

#1. They are both short
#2. They are both rotund
#3. They both have beak-like noses
#4. They are both physically deformed sociopaths with homicidal grudges against others. In the Penguin’s case, it’s Batman. In Cheney’s case, it’s people he hunts with.

Today, while watching Obama’s inaguration, I noticed another; they both have sinister means of transportation. In The Penguin’s case, it’s an elaborate duck-mobile. See below.

In Cheney’s case, it’s a wheelchair………..Oh! here’s another one I just thought of, making it #5: They both use canes. The Penguin’s cane is also a machine gun I think, and God knows what Cheney uses his for. Probably to impale babies. See below.

But the most striking thing is similarity #6, their faces. I don’t think I need to explain this….are we sure it was Danny DeVito who played the role? What was Cheney doing during the early 90s?

See what I mean?

Did you catch that shot of Cheney in the wheelchair, hunched forward, black coat and big black fedora? Looked like a nazi from Raiders of the Lost Ark film.

The Penguin uses an umbrella, not a cane.
Another similarity: they are both corrupt politicians.
Otherwise, bravo!
