North Korea threatened to 'finish off the United States once and for all' this week. Taking the threat very seriously the US immediately sent out nuclear equipped aircraft towards the rogue nation. Pyongyang promptly responded that there had been a misundertanding and that the statement was actually refering to a game of Risk that the Generals were playing at the time.
"We were just having a game and someone inadvertantly left a microphone on." said General Bok Chump nervously to the nearest foreign news agency it could find over the border in China. "Someone had just landed all his armies in the North America part of the board and said that. It was all in fun. We really didn't mean it. Really. It was just a joke. Honest. In fact, we are going to have the microphone person executed tomorrow. You Americans can watch if you want." Mr. Bok Chump then tried to smile a sincere smile that made his face look as if it had been shrink wrapped. "Just to show that we are really friends." Mr. Bok tried to make his smile bigger which probably cramped muscles he wasn't used to using.
Just to give them some food for thought one of the warplanes dropped a bomb on a rural field. Unfortunately it killed the entire herd of two cows that the country had, plunging the nation into a milk shortage.
