In other world news, the North Korean bureaucracy has emitted a joke in response to Hillary Clinton’s tough line on the communist state’s weapons trading, and her comparison of its leaders to “unruly children” unwilling to behave properly at the great Adult Table of Nations.
“We cannot but regard Mrs. Clinton as a funny lady as she likes to utter such rhetoric, unaware of the elementary etiquette in the international community,” says the NK in a statement. “Sometimes she looks like a primary schoolgirl and sometimes a pensioner going shopping.”
We realize their people are eating grass, but North Korea really needs to spiff up its punchlines, or at least the translation of its punchlines. Rush Limbaugh has a whole trunk full of piano-leg jokes on which he’d probably give them a good rate.
