The Worm to the rescue

You can find this one at the intersection of Surreal and What The (Bleep) ...

Dennis Rodman is reaching out to his pal, dictator/platinum-card wack job Kim Jong Un of North Korea, to try to secure the release of a Korean-American.

"I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea, or as I call him 'Kim', to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose," Rodman said on Twitter.

Two things about that:

1. "Or as I call him, 'Kim' "?

2. "Do me a solid"?

And now I'm imagining the Supreme Leader of North Korea's response ...

I'm responding this day to the request of my friend Dennis Rodman, or as I call him, "Worm." I will release Mr. Bae on one condition: Get me Madonna's phone number. Or Carmen Electra's. I'm not picky here.


Kim Jong Un

Supreme Leader of North Korea

(Or as I call myself: The Kiminator).
