This was the message from Americans in Los Angeles when asked a “positive” question about North Korea’s hydrogen bomb for the Jimmy Kimmel show on the ABC Network. Just shows how much the Spice Girls have to answer for in pushing positivity – several interviewees congratulated North Korea on “making their dreams come through!”

You’d think that the idea that North Korea might have an H bomb would be somewhat alarming to some people, but it seems like if you ask people a question in a cheerful enough way, they’ll offer congratulations for just about anything.northkorea-nuclear

A 5.1 magnitude earthquake felt in the Korean peninsula has just been confirmed to have been caused by the explosion of a particularly devastating nuclear weapon: the hydrogen bomb (according to North Korea anyway). ‘The republic’s first hydrogen bomb test has been successfully performed at 10am on January 6, 2016, based on the strategic determination of the Workers’ Party,’ said the state television news reader a few hours after the blast.

In a signed letter broadcast over  North Korean media, Kim Jong-un wrote that he wanted to ring in the new year with a literal bang. “For the victorious and glorious year of 2016 when the 7th convention of the Workers’ Party will be held, make the world look up to our strong nuclear country by opening the year with exciting noise of the first hydrogen bomb!” the letter read.

Can’t stay as I’m off to fill in my next You Tube Survey I don’t understand. Next Donald Trump is going to tell us Paris is in Germany and Sarah Palin will tell us she knows all about Russia as it is next door to Alaska!

In 1898, to widespread bemusement, a small Provincial Newspaper in an equally small town in the South West corner of Ireland sonorously warned the Czar of Russia that it knew what he was up to and he should be careful how he proceeded for “The Skibbereen Eagle” was wise to his game and in future would be keeping its eye on him! It is doubtful that Nicholas II, Emperor and Autocrat of All the Russias, even noticed the Eagle’s admonitions but as history soon proved he should have paid closer attention to the Eagle’s insightful opinions!
