  1. Completely senseless! North Korea should have used this opportunity to send their cheerleaders as ambassadors for their country. Obviously they didn’t see it that way. The draconian steps North Korea takes to isolate itself is wrong on so many levels.

  2. from what i saw on CNN, north korea resembles warsaw ghetto in ’43, just before jurgen stroop’s troops ( unintended onomatopeia) “cleared” it. absolutely scary. NK looks like a giant concentration camp where prisoners have to watch themselves. i hope lil’ kim will end up sharing cauldron of hot tar with hitler, stalin & mao.

  3. “Stroop’s troops” is not onomatopoeia; it’s a rhyme. According to, onomatopoeia is “the naming of a thing or action by a vocal imitation of the sound associated with it (as buzz, hiss).”

    Next time, we’ll discuss alliteration. 😉

  4. This reminds me of how everybody misues the term ‘acronym’ these days. An acronym is only an acronym if the letters form another word; if they don’t, then it’s just an abreviation.
