The flamboyant former NBA star Dennis Rodman is heading to North Korea , to become an unlikely ambassador for sports diplomacy at a time of heightened tensions between the US and North Korea.

Rodman, three members of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team, and a film crew from the Vice media company are visiting the communist country to shoot footage for a TV show set to air on HBO in early April, Vice told the Associated Press before the group's departure from Beijing.

I remember seeing DR at Huntington Beach in the late 90s. With the white girl groupie that looked like Tammy Faye baker on crack. (not that there would be much of a difference between TFB on crack or off)

Yup. This is the guy I want going to North Korea. As long as he takes his groupies with him. Immediate improvement in the gene pool for all involved.

It would make more sense if it had been Metta World Peace — if the North Koreans didn’t behave, he’d wump ‘em up side a’head.

Dennis Rodman aside, this is probably a good idea. Have people like the Harlem Globetrotters and other basketball and social luminaries go to North Korea for a show/etc.. It would be the only way to get the message to the North Korean people, we’re not the bad guys....

Not much of a disguise.

Dennis Rodman Is Going To North Korea, The Dennis Rodman Is Going To The North Korea

Sean Newell

There's not much time so listen up. Go to the grocery store. Buy a bunch of canned items and non-perishable goods. Fig Newtons? I don't know. Chef Boyardee or something. Just get food. Also, buy a whole shitload of water. And even more pots to hold extra water.

Should have told you earlier: before you leave, just plug up the bathtub and turn the water on. Let it run, it won't matter. Oh! Get yourself a shovel and a pack of cigarettes. As soon as you get home, fill up all the pots with water and, again, just keep the bathtub overflowing. Flood damage is nothing.

I'll wait. All filled up? Good.

Go outside and smoke a cigarette. Don't worry it won't be the cigarettes.

OK, start digging now. Just dig for, like, five hours straight. What are you digging? A grave probably. A shelter. Once it's big enough—don't stop digging—you can store your food and water in there. Do you have access to lead? Doesn't matter. Don't worry about The News. Call your kids or something. Just keep busy. What? It's just a piece of paper. Don't worry about it. Have another cigarette. You'll be fine—hey! I told you not to worr—

The American known as "the worm" is set to arrive Tuesday in Pyongyang, becoming an unlikely ambassador at a time of heightened tensions between the U.S. and North Korea.

Rodman, three members of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team and a camera crew from VICE television are visiting North Korea for a news show set to air on HBO in April.

The trip comes two weeks after North Korea conducted an underground nuclear test in defiance of U.N. bans against atomic activity. Pyongyang says the test was directed at Washington.

Just keep digging.

Have another cigarette.

You'll be fine.

I bet this is Pres. Obama’s idea. He’s grooming Rodman as a quick replacement for J F’n K. Ole Lurch has been snubbed by the Russians and Syrian rebels, implied Karzai was right about Special Forces’ abuses even though ISAF said none of it happened, and went to someplace called “Kyrzakhsyan”, all in the last two weeks. Lurch is the most incompetent SoS since......the last one.

Are you sure someone didn’t misspell peace? Because the tile would make much more sense if it read:

He had the oddest calves I have ever seen. They look like something off a grass hopper.
