North Korea: Border Patrol

On the occasion of North Korea's decision to bar foreigners from participating in this year's marathon in Pyongyang in order to avoid the spread of Ebola, here are some other memorable reasons that have been used by the hermetic kingdom in order to restrict foreign participation in local athletic and cultural events:

  • Spread of MERS

  • Spread of plague/black death

  • Dissemination of Taylor Swift's bootlegs

  • Circulation of malware-loaded flash drives

  • Zombie attacks

  • Infiltration of capitalist memes

  • Dissemination of Lance Armstrong's wristbands

  • Circulation of Sony's "The Interview"

  • Love locks

  • Interracial mating, flirting & bantering

  • The Macarena
