North Korea Rhetoric Rises to New Heights

OK, no joke, and I probably couldn't make this up if I tried. A statement from the North Korean Foreign Ministry last weeks concludes with the following phrase:

The U.S. is keen on using a catchphrase "Carrot and stick."
It would be better for the "Donkey" of the U.S. Democratic Party to lick the carrot.

Ummm, did they just say what I think they said? I don't even think it is a double entendre, as "lick the carrot" really cant be meant in any straightforward manner...

Perhaps the State Department should respond in kind:

We understand Kim Jong Il has Nodong and is preparing a Tape-on-dong.

Ah, the foreign policy of the fifth-grade playground...
