World news- North Korea

Howdy Miscreants, if you know me personally you’ll know that this article has been a long time coming. If you know me, you know I love to make fun of North Korea (AKA Kim Jong-Un’s “True Korea”), and I even stated that the reason I began doing world news on the school blog was just to make fun of this country. However, I thought it would be best to hold off before I began on this topic which I could go on and on about. Then when it came time for this article, I chose this because... well, I couldn’t think of anything better to do. If you haven’t been living in a hole in the ground you’ve probably heard of this country’s current shenanigans. The biggest thing is that recently North Korea detonated their first “successful,” emphasize on that word there, hydrogen bomb. Though you should be aware that North Korea has claimed they have had successful hydrogen bombs for a while now. Although you should take everything “Fatty Kim the Third” says with a grain of rice,  (that’s your ration for the day by the way, so take extra care of it). Anyway, the bomb they detonated is estimated to be around 100 to 120 kilotons of TNT. This is comparable to the bombs the USA dropped on Hiroshima (Little Boy - around 15 kilotons) and the bomb dropped on Nagasaki (Fat Man - around 20 kilotons). Though before you grab you hazmat suits and begin digging yourself a vault to lock yourself in remember, this is the country that still has Cold War Era camouflage biplanes designed by the Russians as their air force. Also that statement is not a joke-- that is literally their air force; look it up. Anyway, all I’m saying is this: yes, North Korea is a threat, but I doubt they are going to bring the end of the world, and if they try anything, the USA will make the place a crater and the world can continue forgetting that North Korea is a country. Until then, look up some of the things that North Korea and its chubby dictator have gotten up to, and you’ll find yourself a pretty good laugh. Anyway, goodbye and good luck not laughing at North Korea due to something they are doing or have done.
