I had not originally intended to do an international version until brownstown511 left a comment on the US candidate version of this quiz that gave me the link to the Hitler photo and challenged me to come up with this version. I've added an extra minute since there are some difficult to spell names in this edition. Enjoy!

Putin looks like he's about to give that kid the kiss of death. (And Chavez is straight-up making out with his.) Great sequel. Could you possibly accept "Pope Benedict"? I tried that before trying just "Benedict."
Feb 5th, 2012 at 12:13 GMT
Consider it done, druhutch. I had already decided not to require the number on Popes and Queens in this quiz and just forgot that alternative. Come to think of it though, wouldn't 'Popes and Queens' be a great band name?!

Bahaha, the Harper one is great.
Feb 6th, 2012 at 15:39 GMT
Weird seeing guys like Stalin and Hitler doing this, considering they are two of the worst men in history.

I can see why she was nicknamed the "Iron Lady".
Feb 6th, 2012 at 20:58 GMT
If I remmeber my history right that is actually Stalin's daugther. He actually sent the first guy she liked to Siberia.

Stalin's daughter, Svetlana Alluluyeva, emigrated to the U.S. in 1967 and just passed last November at the age of 85. That is not her in the photo with Stalin. The girl in the photo with Stalin is Gelya Markizova and the photo was taken in 1936. Her father was second secretary of the Buryat Mongol ASSR and was executed the following year for spying for Japan.

Absolutely, SecretMike. It's added.

Please accept Crazy Ahmed. Thank you.
Feb 8th, 2012 at 03:41 GMT
Wow, some of these are truly terrifying. Like the ones with the Popes.
Feb 8th, 2012 at 12:15 GMT
Hitler actually looks one of the most relaxed and friendly of the leaders in that picture. Does anyone know if that was with some family member or just a staged picture with a stranger's baby?
Feb 8th, 2012 at 13:38 GMT
@bazmerelda- The people in the picture are the wife and daughter of Hermann Goering and the photograph was taken at little Edda Goering's baptism in 1938. You can see a photo of the two of them watching the baptism at this link: http://popartmachine.com/item/pop_art/LOC+1074569/function.pg-connect. The only sources I can find report that Edda Goering was living in Munich about 10 years ago and that she may now have moved to South Africa.

You may wonder from Hejman's comment (a little ways up) why he knows so much about Joseph Stalin. Well, it's actually because he had to do some pretty extensive research on the guy in order to make this quiz here:

@druhutch- And now several of those ideas have actually been made into quizzes!
Feb 9th, 2012 at 20:29 GMT
I would make a witty joke but spelling Ahmadinejad took it out of me
Feb 11th, 2012 at 10:25 GMT
Not fair picking the one picture of David Cameron where his hair's not frozen into a block of black lacquer. But a fun quiz nonetheless.

I'll admit I entered a misspelled Ahmadinejad into the google box to see what the correct spelling was. I mean, I knew who he was, and how to pronounce it. Is that so wrong? Does that make me a bad Sporcler? Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone.
Feb 25th, 2012 at 04:53 GMT
just one look at Stalin and Putin gives me the creeps!
Feb 25th, 2012 at 17:27 GMT
@publicenemy - not weird at all. politicians kissing babies is the height of cynicism
Feb 26th, 2012 at 00:47 GMT
Love the "kissing babies" quizzes! Make more! They're so funny!

I love the Mandela photo. It looks like he's kissing the hand of a little princess!
Apr 12th, 2012 at 05:12 GMT
Quite a wide assortment of people. President Sarkozy looks astonished that the baby's crying.
Apr 12th, 2012 at 06:15 GMT
The picture with the baby grabbing Stephen Harper's nose is so cute!
Apr 12th, 2012 at 06:17 GMT
That is the greatest picture of Stephen Harper I have ever seen.
Apr 12th, 2012 at 06:32 GMT
The Chavez one is seriously disturbing.
Apr 12th, 2012 at 07:05 GMT
Accept Mohamed Imadinnerjacket?
Apr 12th, 2012 at 07:21 GMT
Perhaps accept Dilma for Dilma Rousseff? I know this can be argued either way, but I remember when she was running for President of Brazil, she was more often than not referred to as Dilma. That's how I know her. Even now: http://blogs.ft.com/beyond-brics/2012/03/30/dilma-kicks-a-goal-for-world-cup/
Apr 12th, 2012 at 07:41 GMT
I thought Harper was JFK.
Apr 12th, 2012 at 08:25 GMT
Will accept Elizabeth, but not Queen Elizabeth???? Yeah that makes sense..
Apr 12th, 2012 at 08:27 GMT
@triviafanpatriot - of course he is surprise, everyone loves Sarkozy !! Have you not been informed of this ?
Apr 12th, 2012 at 08:30 GMT
I got Ahmedinejad but apparently spelt it wrong (so wasn't accepted) - not possible seeing as Arabic is a phonetic language so can accept pretty much any spelling. Come on!
Apr 12th, 2012 at 09:13 GMT
Goes to show you that everybody loves a baby, even some of the most ruthless people in history.
