ABSTRACT
The article presents satirical apologies for various conflicts throughout history. The apologies by U.S. President Bill Clinton for the Tuskegee experiments and British Prime Minister Tony Blair for the Irish famine emphasize the need for volunteer apologists to aid in this great work. An apology is given to Madeline Morris, who advised the military to abandon its masculinist aggressivity and to Brian Lamb of C-SPAN and the personality-deprived everywhere for what Charles II said about Prince George of Denmark, the husband of his niece, the future Queen Anne.
