PYONGYANG – North Korean leader Kim Jong-un told members of his government yesterday that “after watching a pirated copy of a new movie made by American capitalist pigs”, he was inspired to start a nuclear war. The movie in question has turned out to be 1983’s classic “WarGames”.
“I saw the technology in that movie, which clearly is more advanced than what we have now,” said Jong-un, “and decided to beat the Americans at their own game.”

Let’s see their non-DOS computers try to master the intricacies of Pong!”
