No, that’s not Photoshopped — former NBA star Dennis Rodman and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sat next to each other earlier today as they watched a basketball game together in Pyongyang.
Rodman, who is remembered more for wearing dresses than playing basketball, had tweeted that he was excited to maybe “run into the Gangnam Style dude” while there. Not getting the difference between North Korea and South Korea was dubbed a “mix up” rather than what it was: Really truly stupid. Psy, the performer of that YouTube smash responded to Rodman via Twitter, and amazingly he didn’t add, “PS FYI you’re an idiot.”
And during their meeting, Rodman apparently told Kim Jong Un “you have a friend for life.” Rodman may not be aware that his lil’ buddy recently vowed to target nuclear missiles at “the U.S., the sworn enemy of the Korean people.” Ah but what’s a few long-range ballistic between friends?
The dear leader reportedly got Rodman and the crew “wasted” after the game. Well heck — change of plans — North Korea for Spring Break everybody!
Is the former Chicago Bulls superstar the person you’d imagine as an ambassador for peace? Of course not. But apparently Rodman wrote a children’s book that just came out. Say what? Fans of Phineas and Ferb will no doubt suspect that Kim Jong Un is in possession of a Least-Likely-inator that he aimed straight at Rodman’s rump. Thor help us all.
