Noting that North Korea has been awfully quiet for the last few weeks, Secretary of State John Kerry has said that he’s getting worried that “they’re up to something over there.”
Following a rough start to the beginning of the year in which North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un repeatedly made vitriolic comments hinting at war in Asia, the country and its unstable leader have stayed out of the spotlight for several weeks. Washington officials have expressed concern over the current level of quiet.
“Usually attention seeking whack jobs like that are all over the place” said Senator Tom Udall (D-NM). “Like the troubled kid in high school, they want to make noise and get everyone to pay attention to them. They only shut up when they’re on the verge of something big. I think some sort of attention seeking prank may be in the works.”
Though Senator Udall wouldn’t specify what action he thinks Kim Jong-un may do to get the world to pay attention to him again, Udall speculates that it will probably involve either releasing frogs in the girls locker room, or launching nuclear missile.
