« Oh, Those Iranian Terrorists. Never Mind. | Main | Short Cuts »

Plot-breeder? Is that a breeder reactor that generates pot boilers for genre novels? That is the real threat, these days, shodily concieved plots. We'd better get some UN inspectors over to the Stephen King mans, pronto.


Preposterous perfidious probable proliferating plotters! One trait of treasonous trashmongering terrorist territories is their assiduous assonance and consonance. They've studied in the Batman school of Evil Leader Literary Construction.


Their news site is a font of unintentional comedy: http://www.kcna.co.jp/index-e.htm

Sample: "The U.S. imperialists are now bent on their moves to send midget radios and TV sets into the DPRK in an effort to break up the single-hearted unity there and degenerate and disintegrate it from within. This fact alone well shows how desperately they are running about with bloodshot eyes to destroy the DPRK, the bulwark of socialism."

Mmm, midget radios!

  • Confused by our comment policy?

    We're testing a strong CC license as a form of troll repellant. Does that sound strange? Read this thread. (I know, it's long. Keep scrolling. Further. Further. Ah, there.) So basically, we figure trolls will recognize that selling coffee cups and t-shirts is the best revenge, and will keep away. If we're wrong about that, at least someone can still sell the cups and shirts. (Sigh.)
