Man, the first three paragraphs bring the lulz:

Maybe Dennis Rodman had a soothing effect on North Korea's chubby dictator during his visit to the Hermit Kingdom earlier this year, even though we now know that Kim Jong Un would have preferred to host Michael Jordan. This is not surprising, since Jordan was, as Kim is, a two-way threat while Rodman played mostly defense.

For whatever reason, the North Korean strongman has been relatively silent of late. He has even made a few conciliatory gestures to South Korea, which the Seoul government has correctly rejected. But no matter the cause of his current reticence, it will not likely last long. His behavior suggests that of a lunatic, seemingly hostage to the phases of the moon, and his mood and rhetoric change with the tides.

Emerging from seclusion after the death of his equally mercurial father, Kim has pursued the same policies, if indeed nihilistic threats, errant missile launches and bombastic talk can properly be called policy. We know little about him besides his love of basketball, funky haircut and gloomy wardrobe. In fact, we can only guess at his motives and intentions and speculate on whether he really is in charge.


I believe I have found a picture of the author:

There is no god damned way that sentence is grammatically correct as written.

Holy crap his eyes are small.  Just look at those. Does it affect his vision?

Sure it is. The nested clauses all parse based on the newspaper's style guide. Think of it this way:

"Emerging from his hole on February 2nd, Punxsatawney Phil predicts the weather just like his predecessors have done, if indeed an arbitrary date, seeing a shadow and local folklore can properly be called a predictive method."

It would only be more correct if the guide also allowed offsetting commas before and after the "indeed," and the Oxford comma between "errant missile launches" and "and bombastic talk" on the list.

Xi said . . . I know what it's like to be dead. . .
 
2013-06-07 03:32:23 PM  
And I said      what about      Breakfast at Tiffany's?
Xi said I think I      remember the film
And as I recall I think,      we both kind of liked it
And I said      well that's,      the one thing we've got
 
2013-06-07 03:57:58 PM  
Xi was walking down the street so I said "Hello
I`m Kangol from UTFO."And xi said "So?"
And I said "So?!? Baby don`t you know?
I can sing, rap, and dance in just one show

/Okay, I'll get back to work now.

You think you lost your love,
Well, I saw her yesterday.
It's you xi's thinking of
And xi told me what to say.

Xi says xi loves you
And you know that can't be bad.
Yes, xi loves you
And you know you should be glad.

Xi I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--xi bop,
Oo--oo--xi--do--xi bop--xi bop

When Xi visits, does Xe provide security?
 
2013-06-07 07:23:43 PM  
Xi takes just like a woman, yes xi does
Xi makes love just like a woman, yes xi does
And xi aches just like a woman
But xi breaks just like a little girl
 
2013-06-07 09:03:26 PM  
And xi was lying in the grass
And xi could hear the highway breathing
And xi could see a nearby factory
Xi's making sure xi is not dreaming
 
2013-06-08 04:38:49 PM  
Xi said how'd u like 2 waste some time
And I could not resist when I saw little nikki grind
