Be worried, be very, very worried.

North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un warned everybody that he has more than missiles to chuck at the naughty peoples in the West and the East and the South and wherever.... See this photo for evidence:

Sample Image

The sheilas in high heels are scary enough – especially if those shoes have snow cleats on the bottom, they will really be able to git along the icy terrain to thwap the evil enemy with those furry pillbox hats – but it's the fukken Commando Chipmunks on the right of the photo that have me worried! Them and their fukken bicycles.

Commando Chipmunks with machine guns - on bicycles!

It's the secret weapon you stupid West-South-Easterners never dleamed of,” Kim Jong-un-who-doesn't-have-a-long-un said. “I rearn my take-over-the-world strategy from Mickey Mouse comics and learised the cuddly but amusing chipmunk could be a hiry-effective weapon against you frukken stupid people that I hate - especiarry liding their riddle bicycles while shooting machine guns; and my Commando Chipmunks are frukken vicious and hungry! You stupid tree-hugging obesities will go 'Ohhh, rook at the cute rittle chipmunk; have a peanut, ri'l guy'. And my little commando chipmunk frukkers will bite those pudgy fingers and then shoot their owners with their riddle machine guns and lide away quickry on their riddle bicycles.

They are nasty frukkers - jus' rike Hitler's war pigs; So... I call my commando chipmunk army – the Nutzies.”
