What's up with North Korea? First they fell for the Onion's "Sexiest Man Alive" satire and now this:

"North Korea Has Found a Secret Unicorn Lair, Apparently
flickr user: Christina Welsh (Rin)

"Archaeologists of the History Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences have recently reconfirmed a lair of the unicorn rode by King Tongmyong, founder of the Koguryo Kingdom," reports the wait. Stop. UNICORNS? That's an actual snippet from a report from the Korean Central News Agency, the state news agency of North Korea and fine, okay, we totally understand that this might be a retaliatory joke in response to China getting fooled by The Onion naming Kim Jong-un the Sexiest Man Alive or something.

But experts don't lie, do they?"

2. A complicated relationship with the truth?

Isn't this the same national media that claimed Kim Jong-il shot 11 holes in one over 18 holes in a single round of golf?

5. China fell for the Onion's story, and the KCNA has always run these kind of stories.

Reading it from day to day is a bizarre experience.
