In response to the horrific bombings in Boston this week the Republican Party united around legislation to tightly restrict the sale and ownership of pressure cookers. Senate leader Mitch McConnell stated, “These things have only one purpose – to kill people!” Since we cannot always ensure that they might not end up in the hands of mad men, we must take every possible measure to protect the public from these weapons of mass destruction. We propose background checks on all individuals purchasing pressure cookers, as well as a 30 day waiting period. We also propose on banning large capacity pressure cookers since they’re only purpose is to cause massive carnage.”

In other news, a measure to ban large capacity ammunition clips and background checks, was defeated mostly along party lines.  

NRA C.E.O. Wayne LaPierre, in a press statement after the bombing, stated,  “It’s just like I said with guns, The only way to stop a bad guy with a bomb is to have a good guy with a bomb nearby to stop him!”. The NRA is proposing extending Second Amendment rights to include private ownership of unmanned missile armed drones.

Washington DC

With many state legislatures and Congress moving to limit access of guns to mentally disturbed people, a large contingent of them are literally up in arms over what they feel is their Second Amendment Right to bear arms. According to one of their spokespersons, “Just because we are psychotic and have paranoid fantasies of people trying to kill us, and fantasize about going into schools and movie theaters and shooting a lot of people doesn't mean that deep down inside we aren't warm loving people. We should have every right to stockpile arms and massive quantities of ammunition -  In fact because we have paranoid fantasies about people coming to get us, we have all the more need for guns – especially ones that will let us mow down a whole lot of people real real fast without having to stop and reload. “

Pyongyang, North Korea

Today North Korea’s Leader Kim Jong Un apologized after being caught on video tape with what ESPN called “Bullying Behavior” toward his neighbors and the Western Powers.

In a Press conference shown on North Korean state television,  a very contrite Jong Un  tearfully told ESPN and the world,  "I've let so many people down: my players, my administration, ,my fans, my family, Dennis Rodman. There's no explanation for what's on that film. There's no excuse for it. I was wrong. And I want to tell everybody who's believed in me that I'm deeply sorry for the pain and hardship that I've caused."

Some of the bullying behaviors that were caught on tape showed Kim threatening nuclear annihilation on the US, raining terror upon Western Powers, and verbally abusing leaders of South Korea.

It is uncertain if authorities will now remove Kim because of this incident, but it appears highly unlikely.

After suffering months of disastrous publicity and losses from failed cruises due to fires, mechanical damages, and sickness aboard ship, the Carnival Cruise Line announced that they will offer dry dock cruises. 

According to their spokesperson “These will be aboard our Luxury Cruise Liners, but will never leave their mooring dock. That way if a fire or other disaster strikes, the passengers can simply get off the ship right where they embarked. While we realize that some passengers might miss the ambiance of exotic ports of call, but it’s a heck of a lot better than  having to endure days of drifting nowhere in a smelly ship with spoiled food, clogged toilets and no AC.”
