Gallivanting In North Korea
A tourism message from Our Glorious Leader:
Chinese tourists gallivant along a golf course at the Mount Kumgang resort in North Korea. The course has been closed for three years, after a South Korean tourist was shot to death by North Korean guards at the resort and South Korean officials banned tourists from the site. This summer, North Korean officials started a program reaching out to Chinese tourism officials and others to restore the resort. (Goh Chai Hin/AFP/Getty Images) #
In North Korea it is forbidden to break par. Bad karma.
But Our Glorious Leader has decreed that it is permissible to take a mulligan.
Seriously, this country is nothing but a giant prison.
