When the news hit last week that Dennis Rodman was heading to North Korea as a basketball ambassador of sorts for a documentary that HBO was making pigs everywhere began to sprout wings. When pictures of him and the dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, at a basketball game laughing it up and having a good ole time were published--well, everywhere--a place that is known for being rather hot being freeze over. Dennis Rodman. The Worm. Representing the United States and the free world essentially hanging with the leader of communist North Korea--and they apparently talked politics. Be afraid. Be very afraid (and look forward to the SNL spoof that most assuredly is soon to come). Rodman has since stated that he and Kim Jong Un are officially friends. Word is that Kim got Rodman and the rest of the Americans drunk the night of the game last week. I can only imagine the hi-jinks that Rodman got into with him after a few drinks... Anyway...Rodman appeared on the news program
