Why Do You Hate Us, Verizon?

We just came off of a great sports weekend: the NBA playoffs kicked off, the quest for the Stanley Cup intensified, and baseball concluded its languid first month.

BOOM! Fake Shot!

The North Koreans sure are pissed! And by the looks of things, they have tens of soldiers armed and ready to…shout wildly, practice tae bo, and mercilessly blow up cardboard cutouts.
