Meanwhile somewhere north of the 38th Parallel in "The Land of the Morning Missile Launch" we find Norf Korea's Great Reader, KIM Jong IL with his eyes fixated on New York City...
KIM- Holy, Ho Chi Minh! General Wang! Come quick !
WANG- Right here, your Greatness. What's up, Sir?
KIM- (pointing) Look at picture on cumpooter screen! Emplire Steak Building on fire! Just like 1974 movie, The Inferno Towering!
WANG- No, Great One...that is no Towering Inferno. Those are lights. It looks like the city of New York is paying tribute to the Red Chinese!
KIM- They pay?! How much?
WANG- No, Great Reader...I mean they pay respect to the Red Chinese by lighting the Empire State Building with red and yellow lights commemorating the 60th anniversary of...of...
KIM- Of what?
KIM- Of what? Come on now...out wiff it, General Wang... spit it out!
WANG- The founding of the People's Republic of China.
KIM- BLINGO!!! And for bogus points, who helped Great Reader's Daddy, KIM IL Sung, by killing many Souf Koreans, Americans, and UN forces in the Korean War less than 60 years ago?
WANG- The People's Republic of China.
KIM- See? I told you I'm gonna light the Olympic torch in Chicago, come 2016.
WANG- Apparently so.
KIM- HOPE and CHANGE, baby!!!
WANG- Well...CHANGE it certainly is.
