Partying continues in Austin despite North Korea's threats of missile attack

AUSTIN -- If there was any anxiety in Texas' capital city from being named as a possible target by an increasingly belligerent North Korea, it was hard to find Friday.

Tourists and townsfolk alike were clearly in a mellow mood as they strolled along Austin's storied Sixth Street, seemingly oblivious to the possibility they could be in the cross-hairs of mercurial dictator Kim Jong Un.

"Austin, seriously?" said an amused Jeff Miller, a 34-year-old restaurant worker, as he sat inside The Jackalope, a bar and restaurant named after the mythical creature. "He's going to wreck a couple of musical festivals, I guess."

In a city that prides itself on tolerance and its world-famous motto, "Keep Austin Weird," Miller's response typified the street reaction to media reports that Austin is one of four U.S. targets of a missile strike plan prepared by the North Korean leader and his senior military strategists

1. Hold the secession and pass the ammunition

Then again, maybe if we seceded from Kim's mortal enemy, the little guy would look more kindly upon the inhabitants of Texas.
I'm sure that Ricky has taken that into consideration and will be acting out accordingly. In a war of wits between Kim and Perry, however, it is hard to say who would come out on top. Anyway, it is inconceivable that North Korea would actually reserve a missile just for lil' ole us. . . but then, perhaps that word does not mean what you think it means.

4. So does this mean Duck and Cover is back? Backyard bomb shelters?

I'll pass this time. I was just a little kid when the TPTB cranked up the old Commies are Gonna Bomb Us routine. Yeah, never happened, they went out of business, people started buying jeans and Chinese crap, happy ending.

I didn't even bite on TERRA! TERRA! TERRA! with W.

So I'll pass on MISSILES FROM HELL: KOREAN MONSTERS OVERHEAD!!!!!!!!!! BOOGA BOOGA BOOGA!!!!

Meanwhile, those fucking Canadians continue to threaten my air and water with the damned pipeline.
