But Does He Like Kimchi?


The news item about Kim Jong Il offering sanctuary to Saddam Hussein brings
to mind the old Jack Benny joke: “Your money or your life!” “Lemme think a

cower in your bunker, waiting to become a target for our guided munitions,
and end up buried alive beneath several hundred tons of concrete rubble.

with Kim Jong Il in his private screening room. What’s it to be?” Saddam:
“Mmmmmm…. How long do I have to think about this?”
