So you're saying it's already started?

Still, I'd take World War III instead of this:

Friend friends, or euphemism "friends"?

I think he had to sign a "No Macking on Hot Asian Chicks" clause before he crossed the border.

Only Rodman could go to North Korea.

Vice is awesome. I look forward to the HBO show

Simon Sez. The Minis. Double Team. I wonder if there has been anyone with major roles in at least 3 films and all of them have been that bad?

/Rob Schneider and similar actors that deliberately make only bad films don't count

Friend for life? Seriously? What do the two have in common to base their friendship on? Oh - narcissistic values and everyone else in the world is beneath them. Got it.

Tis a dangerous situation indeed. America's imperialistic fascists were planning to take over North Korea, but it seems that Un might allow to modernize the country during his lifetime.

Chumming it up with an oppressive dictator. That's pretty farked up, actually.

Until that last stipulation, I was *so* going to mention Tony Danza and/or Pauly Shore.

Ha, I don't think Rodman is the guy to accuse of thinking the world is beneath him. Reminds me of an exchange from Seinfeld.

Jerry: "Notice anything different about George recently?"
Elaine: "Like what?"
Jerry: "A lot of attitude, like he's better than me?"
Elaine: "I don't think George has ever thought he was better than anyone."

Even if worst does come to worst, would we really have another World War? I mean, who's actually going to be dumb enough to help North Korea? Surely even China has more sense than that.

Double Team was so terrible it was awesome.  Van Damme, Micky Rourke, technomonks, and a minefield with tigers?  How much coke did the writers do before coming up with the script?

Honestly, exporting our culture is probably a lot more effective than delivering democracy at gunpoint.  Whether Dennis Rodman is the correct ambassador is another discussion entirely.  I wonder how the basketball game went.

I mean, there's Gremlins 2: The New Batch, but I won't credit him with that.

It's like a feature-length Old Spice commercial, but without Terry Crews.

A woman is picked up in a bar by Dennis Rodman, the famous basketball player, known for the wildly changing color and style of his hair. They liked each other and the woman went back with him to his hotel room. He removed his shirt revealing all of his tattoos and she saw that on his right arm was a tattoo that said, "Reebok". She thought that was a bit odd and asked him about it.

Rodman responded, "When I play basketball, the cameras pick up the tattoo and Reebok pays me for advertisement".

A bit later, his pants came off and she sees "Puma" tattooed on his leg. He gave the same explanation for the unusual tattoo. Finally, his underwear came off and the woman screamed and ran to the corner of the room.

Rodman said, "What's wrong?" The woman remained quiet and just pointed at the tattoo on his penis that read "AIDS".

Finally she said, "I'm not going to do it with a guy who has AIDS!"

He said, "It's cool baby, don't worry. In a minute it's going to say "ADIDAS."

I'd be more concerned with the Harlem Globetrotters holding a press conference to announce that Kim Jong-Un is a jive sucka.

In many cases I am certainly inclined to agree with you... but not this one. North Korea is different, and any celebrities going there do nothing but help legitimize the regime and provide it with more propoganda. The society is extremly compartmentalized, and he's not exporting any culture being there, he's simply amusing the top regime members.

But as a general matter I agree with you. Cuba, for instance could really benefit from us dropping our embargo and opening up to them.

It would be funny if the Globetrotters humiliated the North Korean team like they routinely did the Washington Generals and got themselves executed.

He could probably snap Un's neck like a twig.

Kinda douchey investigative journalism outfit. Their stuff on North Korea is some of the best you can find.

McDonalds and Coke have done more for world peace than pretty much anyone else.

It seems like there could be benefits to it, like showing their citizens that not all Americans are out to destroy them.  I'm not sure it'll make much of a difference, but I don't really see how he can make things any worse by showing up there.

The North Koreans will probably portray the blacks as an oppressed minority in USA.
