Beautiful!
Morally far better than dropping heroin, but the same end effect.  Lots of addicts clamoring for their next fix.  This will do more harm to the NorKs than any sanctions would.

Not quite like an oreo, but with marshmellow instead of cream, and the whole thing is covered in chocolate, and tastes delicious.

Meh.  The Nork government is just going to tell the people that, in their latest attempt to foil the illustrious Socialist People's Juche Revolution, the American Capitalist Running Dogs and their South Korean lackeys have poisoned the things, and that all good North Korean citizens should hand over any such pies they come across to the local Army command for prompt disposal (in the mouths of the local army and party elite, no doubt).  And if they don't, they and their entire families will be shot.  Problem solved.

I would also recommend Oreo Cookies -- as addictive as cocaine, according to a recent study.

Or an aerosol bomb of McDonalds Ice Coffee with Caramel -- which I believe was recently referred to by a famous comedian as "liquid crack"

Their attempt to satiate Kim Jong-Un's legendary appetite will not spare them from being punished for their decadent ursurpations against the Korean peoples. These are all merely a morning snack for Glorious Leader anyway and will hardly make a difference to his expansive grandiosity.

I'm off to create a crappy video game where the floating head of Dear Leader has to intercept chocolate balloon bombs.  If they get past him, one devoted follower of the DL disappears.  When all of his followers are gone, DL throws a temper tantrum.

My grandmother lived in north Alabama -- within a day's drive of the Moon Pie bakery in Chattanooga. I've had one that was all of three days out of the oven. It wasn't better than ANY orgasm I've ever had, but it beat out at least the bottom 30%.

I'm no fan of the moon pie, either, but CSB time:

When we moved to my new office my company got a cafeteria with a full kitchen, and the company that
was contracted to run it decided to show off their culinary prowess by making home made moon pies
covered in crumbled bacon.

Let me repeat that:  home made moon pies with crumbled bacon.

Now, not being a fan of the mass-produced moon pie, nor of the fetishization of bacon, I nevertheless
had to try one, if only to see how abominable a concoction it was.

It wasn't.  It was, in fact, heavenly, and I bought one every day they had them available.

They haven't made them since, but oh my GOD were they good.

And the North Koreans will praise Eternal Leader Kim Il Sung and his current host, Kim Jong Un, for making choco pies fall miraculously from the sky, then return to work with new determination to destroy the imperialist manbearpigs of South Korea for their rejection of the Eternal Leader's enlightenment.

I don't mean to be *that guy* but please tell me you are not the kind of person who turns up the power on your wireless router at home .. thinking it will give you a "Better signal" without realizing that the phone has to talk back to the router.. and the phone is the weaker of the two?

/I have a neighbor that must have a 3 watt wifi unit. You can detect it over a mile from the apartments. I wonder what he thinks he is "improving" aside from spewing out massive noise.

LazyMedia: What's a Wagon Wheel?


Two pieces of round biscuit covered with chocolate, in between that usually some sort of marshmallow confectionary, occasionally jam, but always far too sweet.

Never heard of this either until I moved to Australia and I never saw a moon pie before that either because I grew up in the Northern USA (they are just not a thing).

Frankly they are not that great but I guess people have nostalgia for things they grew up with, like me and Faygo Rock 'n Rye soda. Damn I love that stuff.

Please, you don't have to be a Juggalo to enjoy Faygo. And seriously, Rock 'n Rye is quite possibly one of the best soda flavors ever. I can't even describe it except for "awesomely good".

Oh yes! (which is also a Korean Snack Food!) I love the Choco Pies, vastly superior to the wagon-wheels! But then again, Asian junk food is the best on earth!

Link to a picture of what a Choco Pie box might look like.

No, that's not me. However, I will admit that I thought a stronger signal would increase access. If you tell me I'm wrong, I suppose I'll have to e-mail my older brother the engineer for a quick learnin session.

I actually drink rye quite a bit; I'll have to get some rock candy and see what this rock 'n' rye fuss is all about. It's probably just as awful as port wine and lemon juice (which is the taste Thunderbird attempts to emulate).
