Quickie Wednesday

True statement.
Though I do feel bad about PRK's 7-0 loss to Portugal. Those poor footballers are going to get thrown into Kim Jong-il prison when they get home...
(Doghouse Diaries)

*Side note:
I also recommend reading the ESPN profile on North Korea's coach, Kim Jong-Hun.
Some highlights:
Little is known about North Korea's coach and, given the secluded nature of the country, it would be difficult to speak with any accuracy about the length and success of his tenure.

It is difficult, even, to speak about the team, given that they have tried to avoid being seen as much as possible, cancelling friendlies on occasion and leaving out key players in others as they try to spring a surprise.

Quotes: "Perhaps there's no other team in the world who would be fighting with the same dedication to please the leader and to bring fame to their motherland."

Trivia: It's been suggested that North Korea leader Kim Jong-Il gave the coach advice on how to reach the World Cup. Kim Jong-Su, the general secretary of the North Korean FA, has said the 'Dear Leader' gave "in-depth guidance" on how to develop the game in the country and the coach himself has claimed he received regular tactical advice during matches, apparently using mobile phones that are not visible to the naked eye. Jong-Il is said to have developed the technology himself.

Awesome real-life reenactment of the Buzz Lightyear commercial from Toy Story:

Also, in case you were wondering, Toy Story 3 is amazing. I highly recommend it.

Speaking of recent movies...

I give you, Jackie 4chan:
P.S. Karate Kid is also a good movie.

And finally...

That's all for now!
Stay tuned for Three-clip Thursday!
