For "Inveterate Imperialists" Only: Some people have too much time on their hands that they can devote a goodly amount of effort to creating websites that have no real purpose (bloggers aside of course!), but at the same time, are wildly entertaining.

NK News is just such a site. Its creator has managed to cull every article posted on the official propa...I mean news site of the North Korean government since December, 1996. Certainly, the creative jargon used by the government news agency is always good for a laugh, but I'm particularly enamored by the "Random Insult Generator," to wit:
You politically illiterate renegade, we will annihilate you with a fresh revolutionary upswing!

Or:
You imperialist renegade, we will transform your country into a sea of fire!
Okay, that one was more of a threat than an insult, but you get my drift.

More amusing the co-opting of the Kim Jong lookalike marionette from "Team America: World Police," which if you haven't seen, you are missing out.
