Seoul, South Korea. Just when you thought things couldn't get any more tense in the Korean Peninsula, something happens to make the comic tension ever worse!
Today Kim Jong Ill announced plans for the entire nation of North Korea to simultaneously hold its breath until their faces turn blue, or South Korea surrenders unconditionally.
Hillary Clinton said this latest action by the North Korean government was just another childish action, designed to get attention from the rest of the world. So far Kim Jong Ill has resorted to throwing a trantrum, in which his own son scolded him and sent him to bed without his supper. Then there was the incident where Shrek 3 arrived in the non-3D version and Kim Jong Ill locked himself in a nuclear facility with several uranium rods.
"It just goes on and on. We are trying to find constructive ways of engaging their leadership, but they keep coming up with these bizarre antics. We'll just have to wait until they are done holding their breath I guess," said a bewildered Secretary of State, "The Chinese have tried to intervene by putting them on a "time out", but Mr Ill simply hid in his tree house and refused to come down. It really is sad that an entire nation of good people is in the hands of someone like this. I think our only hope is to have BP go to drill for oil in their main harbor."
