Headline of the Day
After a tension-filled week worrying about the rocket launch of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) and their young, new leader Kim Jong Un, the whole world (especially the Philippines) breathed a sigh of relief after learning that the rocket (suspected of being a ballistic missile) disintegrated on the atmosphere and fell on the Yellow Sea.
And laughed their asses off.
It appears that the massive launch of memes and heckling yesterday on the internet across the globe was more successful than the launch of the Unha-3 rocket.
And the meme-loving country like ours was not left behind on giving a good laugh about that failure. Various pictures spread yesterday, with some being creative and funny on giving the reason why the rocket disintegrated (It was stopped by our beloved Mars, Twitter’s Superstar Marian, the rocket was from CD-R King, etc.).
And one of our tabloids was not to be left behind on giving us a good laugh. On today’s issue of Abante, it has a funny headline ‘Supot’, describing the failure of the North Korean rocket.
Supot, for my non-Filipino readers, is a Filipino slang which literally means ‘uncircumcised’. It has an unfavorable and derogatory manner which means ‘not man enough’, or ‘not strong enough’. (Circumcision is a right of passage among young boys here. You will not be considered a true man or strong enough if you haven’t been ‘cut’.)
North Korea has been bragging about this rocket for some time now so why fail? Analysts are saying that being a hermit nation, their technology was 50 years behind. I have this theory that this rocket was just a decoy, a planned failure, a part of the grand plan to showcase the young leader’s power.
Will the world be in danger against this little nation? We don’t know yet. But for now, just enjoy the good laugh.
