We received another mysterious invitation in our mailboxes today. This one, addressed to William Kristol, reads: "The Supreme Leader for Life of the Democratic Republic of Wadiya Admiral General Aladeen Cordially compels you to attend the Blu-ray & DVD launch party for His latest Award-Winning Film, The Dictator."

The August 21 event starts at 6 in Sana'a, Yemen, and among the promised festivities are food, beverages, "Pussycat Dolls and antibiotics," as well as a live performance by the "two currently surviving members of Menudo." Here's a picture of the invitation:

We encourage any readers near Sana'a to stop by the event. Sounds like a lot of fun!
