Let's take a moment to analyse North Korea's latest diplomatic spat:


>> N.Korea's "top national priority" is building a ski resort (Let them eat Germknödel Kim says)


>> Unlike nuclear weapons or medium-range missiles, North Korea doesn't have the technology to make its own ski lifts (priorities!)


>> Kim went to school in Switzerland, which is presumably where he developed his very expensive love of skiing (as well as his passionate affair with fondue dishes, although importing proper Swiss réchauds is also a problem)


>> Official statement castigating the Swiss "This is an intolerable mockery of the social system and the people of the DPRK and a serious human rights abuse that politicizes sports and discriminates against the Koreans." (Thereby shaming the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for its abominable omission of any ski reference)


North Korea calls Switzerland’s refusal to sell it ski lifts a ‘serious human rights abuse’
