Iron Mike sings it like Benito.

Let's sing along. :)

Duce, Duce, Duce gli anni di luce ...

Mike Tyson: Mussolini's My Inspiration. I Get Why Hitler Liked Him. (TMZ)
...

Tyson was talking to Rolling Stone about his vocal cameo on the upcoming Madonna song "Iconic" when he said he drew inspiration from the former Italian dictator.

"When I did it, I think about being some guy like [Benito] Mussolini and they're really arrogant, but you try to come from a positive perspective and be uplifting. You watch Mussolini on television — even though we don't understand what he's saying — he is so mesmerizing. I look at myself in that way."

But then Tyson ups his game ... by saying he can't blame Adolf Hitler for admiring the Italian leader.

Funny, every time I see old clips of Mussolini, I can't help but notice that he even LOOKS like a brutal thug straight out of central casting.

Not unlike Mike Tyson in that respect.

Unlike Hitler with those pitiful puppy dog eyes that drove women wild (at least when he wasn't screaming).

And Stalin who was of course Daddy.

Not to mention Franco who always looked like a greasy little weasel even in his best propaganda. But then Franco was never a "popular leader" in quite the same way as the others.

Mike Tyson is the owner and operator of Tyson Ranch.
https://tysonranch.com/
Spoiler:
Image
Word is, he supplies about $500K worth of wholesale weed to shops and dispensaries in California.
Mike Tyson is getting high on his own supply. The retired boxer selling cannabis grown on his California ranch admitted to smoking $40,000 worth of the drug per month on a recent episode of the "Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson" podcast, per USA Today. "What do we smoke a month?" Tyson asked his business partner Eben Britton. "Is it $40,000 a month? It's 40, yeah, $40,000 a month." Britton chimed in: "We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month."

The 40-acre Tyson Ranch—which Tyson noted sells $500,000 in marijuana each month to dispensaries in Nevada and California—purports to offer customers "the best the plant has to offer in every single one of our products." Still, some are just a bit concerned with Tyson's dosage. According to Yahoo, "$40,000 is an insane amount to spend on marijuana each month—regardless of where it comes from or how many people Tyson has helping him smoke it." (Read more Mike Tyson stories.)

Smokes $40K worth per month? I think he might be pulling some legs.

Or it is artesian? Might cost $5,000/oz just because the bud crepolence transcends the senses of mere mortals. Then $40k is easy.

His partner clarified:

Clearly bullshit. If one person smokes an ounce/day (way more than I ever dreamed of smoking in a single day, but maybe Cheech and Chong could manage it?) then one person might smoke 2 pounds in a month. We're talking the upper limit of plausibility here, I think. :notsure:

Getting back to the point of the OP, wouldn't Benny the Moose have been more mellow if he'd smoked some weed?

And if he'd dropped weed on the Ethiopians (instead of gas shells) that'd 've been way cool. 8)

The OP was started 4 years ago. There is no 'getting back' to that. Tyson Weed is the new OP. Get with the fucking program, meat boy.

You bumped the thread because your alleged new OP was not important enough for its own thread.
