North Korean leader Kim-Jong Un has reacted to a satirical story about him by playfully sending a chilling threat to the world.
American satirical website The Onion ran a spoof story about Kim Jong-Un being voted the sexiest man alive last month. The story was taken as real by Chinese media and printed.
It is thought the North Koreans wished to respond in kind with Kim Jong-Un keen to show his tolerance and sense of humour, by firing a rocket into the atmosphere.
State Television pictures from Pyongyang square show North Koreans simultaneously rolling around with laughter, interspersed with Kim Jong-Un smiling intently into the camera after the missile is launched.
A North Korean spokesperson made this statement, "The Dear Leader is sooooo funny and wishes to share his humour with the world. The Great One is also so humble. He can take a joke so thought he would show his wacky, playful side by humorously launching a rocket missile over Japan and South Korea, ha, ha, ha, ha, what is he like! so zany."
Oh Kim you are a one. Or Un.
