The Crabby Hermit Kingdom



Giving free P.R. to the upcoming movie The Interview, which is a comedy about a couple of yayhoos recruited by the CIA to whack the Great Leader Dear Leader Great Successor, the Nork government frothed:
"The enemies have gone beyond the tolerance limit in their despicable moves to dare hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership," a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman told the country's state-run news agency Wednesday.
Dude, this is what comes of not having the intertubes in your country. Internet 101, dude: Don't Feed The Trolls. If they get a rise out of you like that, they're just going to keep yanking your chain.

Besides, the movie is obviously just as much making fun of the CIA as it is your Austin Powers-villains-meet-the-Star Wars-cantina national leadership, and you don't see Langley issuing any turgid pressers about it, do you? No, you don't. That's because the CIA are grownups that know how to handle mockery; Franco and Rogen better hire food tasters.

"CIA are grownups"? Maybe early pubescent teenagers, but hardly grownups.

juvat beat me to it.

Remember not too long ago when there was a political hit, if the right person got offed it meant the CIA didn't do it?

They have obviously also failed to learn from Islam.
No one cares how offended you are until you start blowing people up.

Your snark almost went by me this time. I was sure you were talking about our very own Hope and Change.

I look forward to the future US president who will, on his/her first day in office, destroy North Korea's leadership as an example to the rest of the world.

It would be more impressive than a meeting with the Canadian ambassador or signing executive orders.
