The dumbest thing anyone has said about the World Cup, and possibly ever in any context.

Guess what? is reporting that four North Korean players have gone missing. Shocking, I know.

Now, the North Korean spin on the situation is amusing enough, and sufficient reason to read the article. But what absolutely blew me away was the closing line in the linked article, from a fan blogger writing under the AOL impritur:

But until FIFA or North Korea officially confirm or deny anything, it’s unfair to make any sort of assumption: the preferred outcome of this situation is that all four members of the team are back on the sheet when North Korea plays its next game. Regardless of anyone’s political preferences or convictions, there’s no need for “outside” issues to impact a wonderful event taking place in South Africa right now.

The preferred outcome. Have you got that? It is to be wished that these four human beings be repatriated to a slave state in which malnutrition is epidemic so that the rest of us can enjoy their efforts while sitting in our recliners.

Somehow the word douchebag doesn’t quite capture it.

Run, you four. And don’t stop running until you reach a friendly consulate.


  1. They showed up at practice just now. So, not missing.

    But yes. Douchebag doesn’t quite cut it.
