During the past five plus years, I haven't blogged about either North Korea or nuclear proliferation much. In fact, the last time I posted about North Korea, it was in the context of Dr. Evil airing his grievances for Festivus. As for nuclear proliferation, I had good news the last time I mentioned it in Iran nuclear deal eases fear premium. Unfortunately, today does not bring good news, as CNN reports North Korea claims successful test of nuclear warhead.
North Korea has hit the button on its fifth and potentially most powerful nuclear test, claiming to have successfully tested a nuclear warhead. CNN's Steven Jiang reports.For more, read the story on CNN's site.
This is the third nuclear test by North Korea since I began this blog and the fifth in the country's history. I ignored the other two, so I guess the third time is a charm. Besides, I should be covering this story. As I wrote in Hiroshima 70 years later, "for a blog about the collapse of civilization to ignore the beginning of the time when nuclear weapons were feared and expected to be the most likely cause of the end of civilization would be a shameful act of neglect. Under the guise of 'better late than never,' I'm avoiding this dereliction of my duty as a doomer blogger by" reporting on this test. Thanks to Kim Jong Un, who I jokingly call "Kim Young One," I'm now paying attention. I'm not particularly grateful.
While I take North Korea's nuclear threat seriously, I don't take "Kim Young One" himself that seriously, so I'm going to have some fun at his expense with the assistance of Skyy the Tipsy Bartender. Follow over the jump.
Kim Jong-Un Nuclear Bomb Shot - KelseyDarragh - Tipsy Bartender
We invited Kelsey over to try our most difficult shot ever; THE KIM JONG-UN NUCLEAR BOMB SHOT! To make this shot we blended some of McDonalds' most popular menu items; a Big Mac, Fries, Milkshake, BBQ Sauce, Diet Coke and then added vodka. Kelsey Darraugh is a youtuber and a friend of the show. Enjoy!That thing looks more disgusting than the Finals Week Bomb I featured in An entire college drinking and eating experience in one glass. Yuck! It's certainly what "Kim Young One" deserves!
