DPRK Calls for "Team America" Ban

THE NORTH KOREANS are officially upset about "Team America," the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has reported.

It seems the film -- which mercilessly mocks Dear Leader Kim Jong-il -- has prompted the DPRK's embassy in the Czech Republic to demand a ban on the movie. Czech officials, naturally, rejected this out of hand.

Now, if this was the DPRK's public reaction to the film, we would love to know what the DPRK's private reaction was. Has the Dear Leader actually seen it? If so, how many people did he throw in the shark tank afterwards? And what were the embassy officials thinking anyway? You'd think the smart ones would have known this would have done absolutely no good.

Besides, it's not the Czech Republic they ought worry about -- it's Poland.
