Hey Beak, could you help me out? I lost me login ID to the Pyongyang Times website and I really have to consult the Dear Leader's speech for our next party meeting.

May I use yours?

You forgot two of the very best.

One was short lived and starred George C. Scott. The other, there's no excuse for not knowing.

Kim Jong Ill wants no part of this Officer.

The Lucille Ball show really did very
few outdoors shots or discussed NYC
in depth. I am not a great fan of that show just like the other ones better.
