In recent weeks, North Korea has invalidated its 1953 armistice and threatened a preemptive nuclear strike on the U.S. Here are some other signs that the country is preparing for war:

  • Creating military formations that put soldiers with boots in front
  • Shutting off nation’s 14 lights at night so country is much more difficult to see
  • North Korean malls playing instrumental version of “(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life” overdubbed with anti-U.S. lyrics
  • Strapping landmines to every North Korean citizen
  • Propaganda team Photoshopping an image of a muscular, shirtless Kim Jong-un putting the Statue of Liberty in a headlock
  • Mandating all citizens maintain a “victory dirt patch”
  • Reprinting every obituary published in American newspapers and adding at the end of each one, “We did this!”
  • Releasing several reports by the state news agency about how uneventful a day April 8 is going to be
