HOUSTON - The National Aeronautics Space Agency has just released a statement that it has hired the nephew of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un.

NASA Spokesperson Trent Timmelfarb informed the news media that 24-year-old Tong Song Chu has been hired to be a computer technician with the space agency.

Tong Song Chu is the nephew of Kim Jong Un and he is very excited to be able to travel to the United States and see how things work in America.

When Kim Jong Un first approached NASA about hiring his nephew they respectfully rejected his request. They stated that he was not qualified for the job.

The North Korean leader then informed NASA that if they hired his nephew he would make a generous donation of $20 million to the space agency.

NASA contacted Kim Jong Un and informed him that they had gone over his nephew's resume a second time and informed him that Tong Song Chu most definitely meets all of the required qualifications.

They added that he can start at his new position with NASA as soon as he arrives in Houston.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.

Sad that the image in the US is that everything must be for sale if the price is right--parody and satires to that effect wouldn't emerge without that foundation for the humor. Thanks Kit.

Even though it is a spoof, I can see them actually doing that. Americans are gullible and money talks.

I suspect all humor has an element of truth to it - even this article. Scary, isn't it?

When one considers what happened to Kim Jung ill's uncle recently who in that family would not want to get out of the country. Alas it is all fiction.
