Today's Oddest Couple

In the strangest sight since Charles A. Lindbergh attended the opening ceremonies of the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin as a special guest of Hermann Göring, commander-in-chief of the Luftwaffe (air force) and later Reichsmarschall (successor to Der Führer), Dennis (The Worm) Rodman) — a retired basketball Hall of Famer — spent a day in late February with one of his fans: Kim Jong-un, the supreme leader of North Korea. The moderately dimunutive (5'5") admired The Worm's rebounding prowess. The Worm said that the North Korean leader was a basketball fan and that the POTUS 44 was a basketball fan. A Hoops Summit? If this is (fair & balanced) fantastic thinking, so be it.

Now Kim, who’s the strangest of big bomb possessors,
Says he’d use his nukes against Yankee aggressors.
Should we build some shelters? No, Kim is no menace,
Since he knows a nuke strike could take out his Dennis. Ω
