Happy Holidays from Kim Jon-un

"In the show's cold open, Dr. Evil (played by beloved SNL alum Mike Myers) from the Austin Powers series interrupted "A Very Somber Christmas With Sam Smith" to talk about the headline-making leak that has distributed the personal information, emails, and salaries of thousands of Sony employees.  While stroking a fake hairless cat — aka Mr. Bigglesworth — and wearing his signature Dr. Evil costume and makeup, Myers began, "I've preempted this program because I'm furious that Sony Pictures and North Korea have given evil a bad name."

.....   Dr. Evil went on to throw in some jabs at North Korea, which has been linked to the hack, "Let's start with you, North Korea. You're one of the most evil countries in the world and your act of war is to kill a movie? It's easy to kill a movie. Just move it to January… Why pick on Sony? They haven't had a hit since the Walkman." Read more, includes embedded hulu videos from the skits, be sure to catch the second video too.

Related  - CNN/Greg Botelho, 12/23/14.  "With internet still spotty, how might North Korea respond?" "The timing of North Korea's latest Internet issues makes them significant. They come days after the U.S. government blamed Pyongyang for being behind the hacking of Sony Pictures over that company's production of "The Interview" -- a comedy depicting the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un -- as well as threats against anyone who dared watch the movie."

He should move to Pacifica and run for city council. He would show them neighboring cities how to behave.
