DPRK headline o' the day

Absolutely no apologies for revisiting the Hermit Kingdom again:

 


Turns out that the North Korean hacks are not going to be undergoing re-education in brass instrument playing, but rather the comment is figurative:

"Kim Jong Il's message to the participants of the meeting titled "Journalists and Other Media Persons Are Buglers Sounding Advance in Dynamic Drive for Building a Great Prosperous and Powerful Nation" serves as a great programme to be upheld by the media in the DPRK in the era of a great surge as it indicates the way for remarkably augmenting the might of Juche-oriented media and a great banner encouraging the journalists and other media persons in their efforts to perform their missions and tasks as buglers taking the lead in the on-going general advance".

One can't help but think that buglers, or come to that, pipers, are among the first to get shot at by the enemy...

In Scotchland buglars are theft merchants whereas pipers are deft, perchance.

STB.

Completely out of topic: the Lufthansa pilot's strike was resolved, at least for now, by a lady judge rejoicing in the name Kohlshitter. I admire her for her family loyalty.

It'd be much more stylish to be sent into battle musically accompanied by a platoon of saxophonists. Wearing dark glasses.

STB - reminds me of a bad joke about a WI member who is embarassed to concede to our friends that her husband is a b-u-g-l-e-r and is pleasantly surprised that she is not then ostracised. Maybe you had to be there...

Frank - A gem. Thank you. there is the added amusement of kohl meaning 'cabbage' of course.

ASE - Now there's a thought.
