    North Korean missile technology was not as advanced as they had led us to believe.

  2. Gollum says:

    Stunning the intelligence community, North Korea revealed that its new missile system carries a payload of one Kia Sedona knockoff priced at $19,990.

  3. Gollum says:

    Sorry officer, I guess I had the cruise missile control set a little too high.

  4. DaveD says:

    In an embarrassing oversight, the budget for the South Korean Mobile Defensive Missile Program failed to allot enough funds for change for parking meters.

  6. Fersboo says:

    How long will I love you
    I don’t really know
    I’d like to think forever
    Is how far we could go so let me paint a picture
    Of how it’s gonna be
    The day you don’t mean everything to me

    When a nickel’s worth a dollar
    And gold ain’t worth a dime
    When they build a ship
    On waters that will take you back in time
    When the stars have all been counted
    And I stop lovin’ you
    Honey they’ll be driving
    Buicks to the moon

    Now you don’t have to worry
    About what comes to pass
    This old world may wear out
    But my love’s gonna last
    If they ever build that highway to the moon
    I’ll just find somethin else to promise you

    When a nickel’s worth a dollar
    And gold ain’t worth a dime
    When they build a ship
    On waters that will take you back in time
    When the stars have all been counted
    And I stop lovin’ you
    Honey they’ll be driving
    Buicks to the moon

    Oh when the stars have all been counted
    And I stop lovin’ you
    Honey they’ll be drivin’
    Buicks to the moon

  10. Gollum says:

    OFFICER: So, what kind of mileage do you get with that thing?

    To appease angry airlines over its failure to deliver promised A380s on time, Airbus Industrie followed Boeing’s lead by quickly offering a smaller, rapid aircraft that could be more easily accommodated at most airports.

  12. Bithead says:

    And just how fast were you GOING down Main Street when the plane landed on your roof, Mr. Jefferson?

  21. Bill Keller decides he needs to make a quick getaway. Unfortunately, his judgement on what to drive is no better than on what to print.

  22. Elmo says:

    Many readers questioned the NYT’s North Korea ICBM launch coverage. In response, Bill Keller said that the photo was secreted out of Pyongyang by a Times reporter (commie). And that he would personally vouch for it’s authenticity (your gullibility). Saying that it was a real photograph. Depicting the actual North Korean ICMB [In Car Mounted (smoking replica) Bomb].

    YMMV ……

    (Enjoy Your Vacation Rodney!)

  23. Elmo says:

    Unable to bear the inanity any longer, Rodney-ho Dill discretely punched the shiny red “Vacation/Launch” button on the forward dash.

    The Cataclysmic Converter is a popular option for the value-conscious Jihadist.

    Honey, can you put down the gunroof?

    Appealing to the typical minivan driver’s inferiority complex, Honda’s Exhaust Manlyfold proved to be a popular feature.
