image for North Korea Explains Planned Missile Launch Is Research for New Video Game
The news that North Korea's planned missile launch is simply research for a video game brought the world a sigh of relief.

After Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed grave concerns regarding North Korea's planned ballistic missile launch, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un explained that the missile launch is simply research for a new video game.

"We are not a violent people," said Jong-un. "We are just helping the economy. The tests will make the video games more realistic. After all, Japan is not the only country that can make video games."

Jong-un dismissed Clinton's claims that the anticipated long-range missile launch poses a threat to regional security, and he laughed off growing concerns that North Korea may be planning another nuclear test.

"I assure the United States that North Korea is not testing any nuclear video games. And we do not plan to do so at any time in the near future."
