Off topic: Have a look at the list of do's and dont's for the villains
Thread poster: Narasimhan Raghavan
See http://www.eviloverlord.com/lists/overlord.html. Some of them are given here for reference.
My Legions of Terror will have helmets with clear plexiglass visors, not face-concealing ones.
My ventilation ducts will be too small to crawl through.
My noble half-brother whose throne I usurped will be killed, not kept anonymously imprisoned in a forgotten cell of my dungeon.
Shooting is not too good for my enemies.
The artifact which is the source of my power will not be kept on the Mountain of Despair beyond the River of Fire guarded by the Dragons of Eternity. It will be in my safe-deposit box. The same applies to the object which is my one weakness.
I will not gloat over my enemies' predicament before killing them.
When I've captured my adversary and he says, "Look, before you kill me, will you at least tell me what this is all about?" I'll say, "No." and shoot him. No, on second thought I'll shoot him then say "No."
After I kidnap the beautiful princess, we will be married immediately in a quiet civil ceremony, not a lavish spectacle in three weeks' time during which the final phase of my plan will be carried out.
Enjoy and have a Happy New Year.

Thanks for the laugh.
This reminds me of Evil Harry Dread (Terry Pratchett, "The Last Hero") who faithfully follows the OTHER evil overlord rules, the ones that always result in the hero winning...
