Global Warming Causes N. Korea to Detain Two of Al Gore’s Reporters

An Inconvenient Hostage Taking:

North Korean soldiers detained two American journalists near the country’s border with China, South Korean news reports and a South Korean missionary said Thursday.

The journalists — Laura Ling and Euna Lee, reporters for former Vice President Al Gore’s San Francisco-based online media outlet Current TV — were taken into custody Tuesday, a missionary who spoke to them earlier that day told The Associated Press.

Don’t worry — Al’s seeing to it that Jimmy Carter is dispatched to give Kim Jong Il a treasure-trove of nuclear secrets in return for the reporters’ release.

In a related story, VP Joe Biden heard somebody say “Taipei” and immediately got defensive and said “No, that’s my real hair… I swear!”
