– North Korea Internet, Cell Phones Go Dark (ZeroHedge, Dec 27, 2014):
When it comes to crude attempts at humor, The Interview may (and should) have been a stunning flop, but meanwhile the real comedy continues in the real world, whose absurdity has made any IPO of The Onion impossible.
According to Reuters, North Korea’s Internet and 3G mobile networks were paralyzed on Saturday evening, China’s official Xinhua news agency reported on Saturday.
The network had not returned to normal as of 2130 local time, Xinhua reported, citing reporters in the country that had confirmed the situation over fixed telephone systems.
The report comes after the North Korean government called Obama a “monkey” and blamed the U.S. for enduring instability in the country’s internet infrastructure, after the U.S. blamed North Korea for hacking attack on Sony Studios.

Meanwhile, here is a candid look at what is surely the worst job in the world at this moment.
