The other day Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decided to have some fun with the gang in North Korea, because as everyone knows, improv comedy is the international language of diplomacy.
So Hillary starts the scene with a classic zinger: "Hey, Pyongyang, you're a bunch of juvenile attention whores!" (I think she learned that one at UCB.)
Throw it back, North Korea, and don't step on the laugh…
[A North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman] called Clinton "by no means intelligent" and a "funny lady."
"Sometimes she looks like a primary schoolgirl and sometimes a pensioner going shopping," the statement said.
Ahahahahahaha! The ol' "pensioner going shopping" line, that always kills. Well played, North Korean Foreign Ministry standup spokesman.
Let's be realistic, though. All of this will be a lot less funny when they launch the nuclear rubber chickens.
