North Korea Accidentally Insults Itself

               North Korea has denied involvement in the recent, infamous cyber-attack on Sony pictures even though it expressed maniacal outrage at the potential release of Sony’s comedic film “The Interview.” Now North Korea has  accused the United States of shutting down its Internet for over nine hours a few days ago in response to the cyber-attack. Their ‘National Defense Commission’ said President Obama was behind the movie’s release.
             Yes, I’m sure he thought of the idea, wrote the script and had control over production, as well. 
             In reality he couldn’t have, since he’s been too busy with other things.
Vacationing and golfing just for starters.

A spokesman for the North Korean government actually said, “Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest.” I don’t often defend this President, but obviously find this remark offensive, repulsive and ridiculous. And, I didn’t know monkeys could talk. It is the North Korean government, and their ‘spokesmen’ that self-evidently ‘go reckless in words and deeds.’
In attempting to insult the President, all they have achieved with this remark is to make themselves look even more ridiculous and pathetic then they did before. Well, that is remarkable, come to think of it.
Moreover, no one in North Korea other than  the top few  government leaders could possibly have known or been affected by the temporary shutdown…for two reasons. One, most of the people don’t have enough money to buy a loaf of bread, if there was one to be found, let alone a computer. And, two, they have the Fisher-Price, “Baby’s First Internet!” set-up over there. Everything is routed through China. What ‘content’ isn’t blocked or experiencing technical difficulties is too dull and propagandized for anyone to want to access.

So these three North Koreans walk into a bar and…
Guess I better not.

They take their comedy- and themselves- seriously in the Hermit Kingdom.
