First, the TED video above is about Hyeonseo Lee, a courageous woman who escaped North Korea with the help of a kind stranger. She discusses the horrible things she endured while growing up in North Korea, including witnessing a public execution when she was 7 years old. I made the mistake of listening to this talk on my phone on my way back from the gym and started to cry—which nearly caused me to propel my car into a telephone pole.
Flash forward to Dennis Rodman and his lip. Yes, the massive ring wrapped around his bottom lip bothers me, but that's the least of my problems. I'm more concerned what he does with his lips—ie using them to formulate words to say things like Kim Jong Un's a "nice guy." He's so nice that Rodman has decided to go back to North Korea to chill with his bff leader:
“I’m going back August 1,” the former rebounder told Gossip Extra exclusively. “We have no plans really, as far as what we're going to do over there, but we’ll just hang and have some fun!”
Have you all fucking just watched the TED video yet? Please tell me after watching that video then reading his quote, your brain hasn't just exploded. If that doesn't slice you the right way, then watch this interview Rodman had about his prior visit to North Korea:
Although I thoroughly enjoyed the initial slide show montage of his glorious romantic trip in North Korea, which included playing with dolphins, my favorite part is what he has to say about Kim Jong Un:
"He's a good guy to me, he's my friend, I don't condone what he does, but as a person to a person he's my friend but as for what he does? *shrugs* He can deal with it."
Seriously? I just. #seppuku.
