For Dennis Rodman

[ 23 ] February 27, 2013 |

In honor of Dennis Rodman’s trip to North Korea, I thought a North Korean propaganda cartoon was in order.

There’s no subtitles, but like you really need them

Among the many problems with this cartoon is that no one under the age of 30 in North Korea has ever seen an actual tree.

    Wowzers. That’s… that’s great. I really wish my math classes had shown us films about using protractors and pencils to fight Saddam.

    Also, is deforestation a big issue in North Korea? I guess I picture a wooded wasteland devoid of food rather than an endless arid expanse of pencil rocket launchers.

    How long will it be before N. Korea is able to deliver a Ticonderoga #2 to America’s West Coast?

    Vice said the Americans hoped to engage in a little “basketball diplomacy” in North Korea by running a sports camp for children and playing games with local people – and by competing alongside North Korea’s top athletes in an exhibition match they hope will be attended by the leader, Kim Jong-un.

    Oh, I know how this one ends: Kim Jong-un Messes Around And Gets A Triple Double.

    At around 5:36, it sounds like they’re saying “hwaiting”

    More realistic than Red Dawn, anyway. Wolverines!

    Clearly we will fall behind the Axis of Evil in the STEM disciplines if we do not intensify our commitment to high-stakes testing!

    That’s an awfully roundabout way to show kids how to use a protractor. On the other hand, I liked that the Imperialist Yankee shells and missiles all looked like Jimmy Durante.

    possibly true.

    “Among the many problems with this cartoon is that no one under the age of 30 in North Korea has ever seen an actual tree.”

    more to the point, i doubt anyone under the age of 40 in north korea has seen a rabbit (or any other wildlife) in the wild. interesting way to learn how to use a compass & protractor though.

    God that was terrible. They can’t even do a decent job on propaganda? It looked & sounded like somebody dubbing modern lyrics on top of Steamboat Willie.
