North Korea Is Angry That They Can’t Buy Ski Lifts


It is not golf, but this news story is too funny to pass up: North Korea’s Kim Jong Un can’t buy ski lifts, and he’s angry about it:

PYONGYANG, Aug. 30 (Xinhua)—The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on Friday accused some European countries of banning exports of equipment for a ski resort, the official KCNA news agency said in a commentary.

They are contending that the equipment belongs to “luxury goods” whose export to the DPRK is banned under the UN “sanctions,” and even doubt that it is “unbelievable that ordinary people of the DPRK use ski resort on Masik Pass and ski is what only high-class people do,” said the commentary.

“This is an intolerable mockery of the social system and the people of the DPRK and a serious human rights abuse that politicizes sports and discriminates against the Koreans,” it said.

This country and its insane dictator would be a lot more funny if they didn’t have nukes.
