That Time When George Washington Posterized Kim Jong-Un

The nation's commander-in-beef abuses his North Korean counterpart with a filthy crossover and finish at the rim. But can he d-up? Cue the cherry picking jokes in 3, 2, 1...

Reddit is the gift that keeps on giving. Case in point: the thread quoted below, authored sometime in February by a frequent contributor, Fact_School_Cat.

There is not nearly enough art depicting our country's Founders playing basketball, a game which was not invented until 100 years after the final colony ratified the Constitution. I want this art.

This is a new idea of mine, but I'd love to hire an artist to create this work. I haven't quite decided on content, but I'm thinking either a team of Founding Fathers versus international enemies (think Kim Jong Eun -- a real basketball fan) or versus a team of my least favorite players (think Andray Blatche). The game should probably take place in Philadelphia's basketball arena.

This is a strange but serious request. Get back with me and let's talk it over.

Because Internet, the solicitation drew a number of serious, nay, credible responses, including the amazing commission above from Redditor I May Be Dead, which surfaced on the site yesterday. George Washington steals the thematic thunder for obvious reasons, but one has to question Stalin's hustle here: he's been boxed out easier than the Red Square (groan…).
