    Excuse me, but Khan Viktor was probably the biggest MadLad of this TL

    “Mr President, your Zap Zephyr pyjamas are ready.”

    “And Jangles the moon monkey?”

    “Freshly laundered”

    Oh my lord.

    Ronald Reagan as Oswald's Infee butler. That would be hysterical. Too bad Reagan has likely been butterflied forever.

    "Master Oswald, you need to stop committing mass atrocities on a whim, sir. It's not healthy. I've seen you like this so many times."

    "I do not do them on a whim. I have reasons. I'm Oswald." *crosses arms*

    *Reagan pulls out a chart* "Master Oswald, I have seen you like this in 1946, 1948, 1951, 1953, 1954, 1958, 1961, 1963, and that one really weird period in 1966."

    "YOU LEAVE JANGLES OUT OF THIS, RONNIE. HE TOLD ME TO DESTROY THOSE VILLAGES."

    “What time is it, Ronnie?”
    “It’s morning in America, Sir”

    Even if it’s not the Regan we know, you can still use his likeness as a suspiciously similar substitute.

    He was also in a movie which he stared as a member of the Presidential secret service so he could always make an appearance as Brass Bancroft, head of the Presidential Guard

    I’m sure you could incorporate him somehow. I mean, your right he’s probably been butterflied, but didn’t you say at least some inferiors survive cleansing month? His parents could have survived cleansing month as some of the few inferiors that didn’t get the poisoned vaccine, and then gone on to have him still. It’d make him a slave almost certainly, but didn’t you have one person earlier on in the story have an inferior slave as a butler as well? I mean it was before the union went fully batshit crazy and started committing genocide, but if anyone could pull of something similar president Oswald would be that person.

    I'd like to introduce another potential madlad, Gerald Bull. Bull was a Canadian scientist who experimented with methods for launching satellites with artillery. Possibly in the Madness-Verse his parents could have fled to Europa during the American invasion, causing Bull to seek revenge against the RU. He could be the leader of the Europan 'star wars' program, designing enormous cannons to bombard the British Isles or CONUS, and destroy inbound nuclear missiles. He could then be assassinated by foreign agents from the Fascist bloc.

    Not to mention he actually performed a "desk pop" in a courtroom with a revolver.

    Quick question for @Napoleon53: what sort of translation does the AFC use for the Old and New Testaments? Obviously the revelations of Burr are in English from the get go, but for the rest of the Bible have they stuck with the KJV, or has there been an official AFC translation commissioned?

    I would think that there's been an AFC translation that would inject some AFC teachings into the Old and New Testaments, to make it look like something some dude in Philadelphia said was actually said by Jesus. Gives the AFC more credibility.

    The AFC Standard Bible was translated by Burr who let's remember had like a brain hemorrhage so it takes certain liberties, although I imagine it's written in the King James vocabulary.

    The Books of Manifest Destiny were revealed to Burr who copied them down, but I don't think anything's been mentioned about the ordinary Biblical canon which the AFC presumably still shares with everyone else.

    Now that I think about it, they might start tacking on some of the weirder apocrypha and non-canon texts as archaeologists and archivists discover them.

    Reagan is an Irish surname. He, like most white Americans from OTL, was a bit of a mutt.

    The jews in the RU also have to use standard AFC bible? They only need the first part.
    I'm interested in how the RU jews are actually practicing Judaism and if there's a Jewish equivalent for the AFC and to the Council of Jehovah...

    "Diet" ITTL just meaning it has OTL original CocaCola levels of cocaine and not the crazy TTL levels. :p
    Because really, when everyone's on coke and meth, nobody's gonna give a crap about how much sugar they're drinking.
    After all, sugar is natural and Jehovah-given, whereas "High Fructose Corn Syrup and artificial sweetners are part of a Illuminist plot to taint, sap, and impurify our Pinnicle Fluids".

    I just had another evil (and silly) idea...

    So we know that Peacemakers will be some kind of nuclear weapon in this timeline, right? What about, instead of being named after the biblical passage "blessed are the peacemakers", they're instead named after the spaceship of our favourite spaceman hero, Zap Zephyr? The more serious/religious minded can say it's named after the Matthew 5:8 passage but we the reader know the truth and can be a sign of Oswalds ever growing instability.

    "Remember folks, tune in this tuesday to hear the latest tales of Zap Zephyr and the USSS Peacemaker! Zap Zephyr and the Peacemaker, patroling the depths of space and protecting the Pinnacle Men and Women of the Intergalactic Union of American States from the evil and corrupting scourge of alien Inferiors from Eire 3 and Europa Zeta! Zap Zephyr and the USSS Peacemaker this tuesday, only on Silver Eagle Radio"
