Now, this is curious, because I have been familiar with this same Evil
Overlord list for some time.  But the one I know is on the web at, and is by someone
called Peter Ansbach.  Somebody here is lying about provenance.  Sorry, I'm
just fanatical about correct attirbution of stuff.  Unfortunately, there
doesn't seem to be any way to tell whether Wombat or Peter is the originator
of this stuff.

But, if you liked that, you might like the similar-type lists at - go to the "Humourous"
section under "John's Science Fiction Pages" and see what the Hero, the
Sidekick, the True Love, etc. should be doing. :-)

And Peter also has extra lists (in Cellblock A and B) on his page of other
stuff the Evil Overlord should be doing.

Enjoy, peeps...
