    I’m always clicking Parker pens three times and throwing them under my colleagues’ desks.   But nothing ever happens.

    I wonder if they’re using ricin as the Soviets did or something faster like curare. Three to five days till death with ricin, one to twenty five minutes with curare.

    I’m thinking Dear Leader watched too damned many James Bond movies.

    I dunno, seems like the Americans and Israelis have assassination down to a simple method of bomb/missile/drone strikes. No need for the covert fancy 007 stuff.

    I’m sorry, I’ve got a problem here: the article title. 

    “‘Poison’ pen mightier than sword for would-be North Korean assassin

    Really?  You’re making puns about this?  This story is still about an activist being targeted for murder by his former country, right?
