Dennis Rodman in North Korea (live feed)

The Harlem Globetrotters are in town, and the town is Pyongyang.

According to their official website, "Harlem Globetrotters Make Historic Trip to Bring Smiles and Entertainment to Kids in North Korea ", and indeed, KIM Junior is said to be an avid basketball fan.

Harlem shake v. Gangnam Style? Since it can't get much sillier, here's my 0.3 point shot at the event (on Seoul Village twitter account):

08:56 - More spent nuclear fuel in North Korea: Rodman swimming in Ryugyong Hotel's swimming pool:




09:16 - Dennis "The Worm" Rodman in Pyongyang. To counter cyberattacks from North Korea? 


09:20 - After Google's Schmidt, NBA's Rodman. Kim Jong-un probably shooting a reality TV show: "The Gulag Celebrity" 


18:11 - Basketball diplomacy crisis: no space left on Dennis Rodman for a Kim Jong-un tattoo 


...

Just to prove how successful this PR operation is: we're so much absorbed in the show that we hardly hear North Korean artillery drills. According to Yonhap News*, they targeted Seoul, with "shells loaded with concrete". As if Seoul needed more concrete...

At the end of the day, let's hope Kim The Third won't confuse the buzzer with the red button.
