Washington, D.C.-The supposed test of a nuclear weapon by the rogue nation of North Korea was really just an unintentional release of "natural" gas by the country's energy ministry.
North Korea, which has been stockpiling flatulence from it's population of 10 million people and one cow, in order to stave off a massive energy deficit, inadvertently set off the explosion when someone lit a match to disguise the odor.
Nations around the world issued statements of relief, while at the same time questioning the wisdom of such practices. even legendary environmentalist Al Gore expressed concern. "It would seem that their hunger for energy has far exceeded their capacity to confront the issue head-on. Having just one giant methane repository was a certain recipe for disaster."
