According to Bernie, "We did not have a lot of books in the house, and it was my brother who actually introduced me to a lot of my ideas." Oh so is that when they decided to TAKE OVER THE WORLD?

Will their faces pop up on our TV screens, waking us up every morning? Huh BIG BROTHER LARRY?

Further proof of their dastardly plans.

Bernie detailed the sibling's plans for takeover, telling the media that he did not expect his brother to win. Wait--what? Oh. No world domination? UGH I really thought I was on to something :(
