The Obama administration has indicated a new line of policy after recruiting bearded TV presenter Noel Edmonds to help deal with the belligerent North Korean state.
Edmonds, who has enjoyed a successful career including hits like Multi-coloured Swap Shop and Noel's House Party was recruited after Obama saw a recent episode of his latest smash-hit Deal or No Deal.
The show was said to inspire Obama with a new, humane and more importantly, entertaining way of making a breakthrough with the intransigent rogue state.
After the aggressive stance of the Bush administration, Obama has decided to extend the hand of friendship and is believed to have offered "Dear Leader" Kim Jong-il the chance to appear on a special edition of the show to determine future relations.
The show, renamed Treaty or No Treaty, will see the North Korean leader opening a series of boxes containing different treaty obligations, such as "aid for starving citizens" and "withdrawal of American troops from South Korea". However, Jong-il will be hoping to avoid the boxes containing "complete nuclear disarmament" and "opening the market to US industry".
Although there has been no official reply from North Korea yet, it is known the leader is a huge fan of the show and has even told audiences at the Pyongyang Games he has a "failproof system" for the show.
The show has a special significance for Edmonds, who was recently rocked by the revelation that his former sidekick, Mr Blobby, had in fact been working as a spy for the totalitarian state.
