Our favorite Islamic boxer, Mike Tyson, is the athlete that keeps on giving . . . us reasons to ridicule him.
We were entertained by his dinner of Ear of Evander (Holyfield) and Leg of Lennox (Lewis), though we felt sorry for the live victims and hope they weren’t infected.
Now, however, we don’t know whether to laugh or be angry. Mike Tyson has embraced Communist leader Mao Zedong.
Being such an admirer of the man who brought despotic tyranny to China, Tyson already has a tattoo of Chairman Mao on his right arm. But now, he’s visited Mao’s embalmed body at the dictator’s mausoleum. He also bought three propaganda books on Mao while in China.
Says Iron Mike:
Standing in front of Chairman Mao’s remains, I felt really insignificant. To have the chance to visit the memorial hall is a great honor for me.
In love with a human rights abuser and mass murderer. Apparently, Mike Tyson has been punched in the head too many times. Makes us glad his boxing career is over.
