The country abbreviation that North Korea prefers is not NK. Rather, it is the three-quarters preposterous DPRK, which stands for Democratic (ha) People’s (ha ha) Republic (ha ha ha) of Korea.
In one sense, this acronym deserves a modicum of our Western respect since it is 25% correct. That is a ratio far above the usual threshold of North Korean propaganda. But it got me to thinking the other day, what should these four letters more logically abbreviate?
Here are five quick truth-in-geopolitical-advertising suggestions from my end:
Despicable Posse of Renegade Kims
Destitute Peninsula Run by Kooks
Deadly Prisons, Railroaded Kin
Deceitful Propaganda of a Robust Korea
Denying a People’s Right to Kindness
