A North Korean Lieutenant General opened negotiations earlier today with his South Korean counterpart as follows:
Bush … goes out jogging one morning and, preoccupied with international affairs, fails to notice that a car is heading straight at him.
A group of schoolchildren pull the president away just in time, saving his life, and a grateful Bush offers them anything they want in the world as a reward.
“We want a place reserved for us at Arlington Memorial Cemetery,” say the children.
“Why is that?” he asks.
“Because our parents will kill us if they find out what we’ve done.” (Source.)
Apparently, the urge to tell jokes about authority figures exists everywhere. In North Korea, however, living to tell another joke means directing the humor elsewhere, instead of the obvious target.
