A short while back, North Korea’s indomitable little despot, Kim Jong Un, son of my good old friend Kim Jong Il, held a press conference to tell the world that he could use a hydrogen bomb to destroy Manhattan pretty much any damn time the mood struck him. Given the disparity of nuclear weapon stocks, as well as the technology gap between the USA and the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea that would virtually assure North Korea’s quick and efficient transformation into a vast, glassy hole in the ground in the event of an atomic engagement, I pretty much ignored the threat–but what did concern me was Jong Il’s own transformation from fairly normal looking Asian dictator into–do you see it?–Sponge Bob.
Got hit with an amusing internet meme this morning. I don’t usually re-distribute this stuff, but I’m in that mood this early AM–you know: whimsical. A better writer would turn this into deeply meaningful metaphor. I’m just sticking it in here because it’s just about the best photo-bomb I’ve seen in a while. And who among us doesn’t like photo bombs.
