I was watching Al Extremo last night on TV Azteca. What? Show me another news program that has little brown women operating their cameras in bikinis and I’ll watch them instead.
Anyway, they were prattling on about how the Mayans predicted the end of the world (like they do every night between chupacabra sightings) and they mentioned that the North Koreans might be the ones who destroy the world. Obviously, this was before the failed launch. I’m pretty sure that the only people on the planet who should be afraid of a nuclear armed North Korea are the North Koreans.
Fox News reports on the launch;
North Korea’s much-anticipated rocket launch ended quickly in failure early Friday, splintering into pieces over the Yellow Sea soon after takeoff.
North Korea acknowledged in an announcement broadcast on state TV that a satellite launched hours earlier from the west coast failed to enter into orbit. The U.S. and South Korea also declared the launch a failure.
A senior U.S. official told Fox News the rocket broke apart between 90 seconds and 2 minutes after launching.
So, Kim Jong-un, henceforth known as “Needle Dick the Bug F*cker” on these pages, has failed to successfully launch his presidency as well as a rocket. Even Stone Age-dwelling Pakistan has launched a satellite into space. I wonder how many of the scientists involved in that launch are still working at their jobs.
I’ll sure be glad when my son gets home from his tour of Korea next month.
