A Tale Of Two Kims (Limerick)

Monday, December 19th, 2011

It’s hard not to laugh at the confusion caused by Kim Jong-il’s demise:

Yes, in the wake of the passing of Kim Jong Il, some Twitter users seemingly believe that the female rapper Lil’ Kim had died instead.

On Twitter, amusing confusion—
Lil’ Kim devotees — wrong conclusion.
Kim Jong-il’s death was met
With deep shock and regret.
Seem’s Kim’s music can cause mass delusion.

Palin Unveils Our Newest Ally — North Korea

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Whenever I think Sarah Palin can’t get more stupid, she proves me wrong. This time she actually said:

But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies. We’re bound to by treaty –.

(Her co-host on Glenn Beck’s radio show corrected her.)

She has earned herself yet another limerick:

Palin Unveils Our Newest Ally — North Korea
By Madeleine Begun Kane

North Korea’s an ally, says Palin.
Her brain cells have clearly been bailin’.
Though her knowledge is weak,
She hastens to speak
With her fact-free assurance prevailin’.

(I have lots more Sarah Palin humor here.)

The Buck Stops … On Clinton? (Updated)

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

Bush is still rejecting the idea of bilateral talks with North Korea, claiming that they failed to work during Bill Clinton’s administration. Meanwhile, Bush’s flame throwing surrogate, John McCain, says North Korea’s nuclear test, conducted nearly six years into Dubya’s presidency, is Bill Clinton’s fault.  So, does that mean Monica was Bush Sr.’s fault?

And that brings me to my latest haiku:

The Buck Stops … On Clinton? (Haiku)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

North Korea’s nukes
Are Clinton’s fault, claims McCain.
Bill’s still Prez?  Who knew?

Update: Right after John “Straight Talk” McCain’s finger pointing, McCain blasted people for North Korea related finger pointing. [tags]Bilateral Talks, Nuclear Tests, Nuclear Technology, Senator McCain, President Clinton, North Korea Sanctions[/tags]

Nuclear Test? Testy Prez

Tuesday, October 10th, 2006

Nuclear Test? Testy Prez
By Madeleine Begun Kane 

A part of the “axis of evil,”
North Korea has caused some upheaval.
It claims to have nukes,
Which inspired rebukes
From our fear-mong’ring Prez medieval.
