Pasadena, CA – Rose Bowl Parade officials sent an official notice to members of the elite North Korean Army’s precision marching corp. The letter gave notice that due to recent international nuclear tensions, the participation of the 10,000 man North Korean precision marching army will not be wanted. The annual parade is used to showcase the annual Rose Bowl football spectacular held in Pasadena each January 1st.
The People’s Democratic Republic of Korea was to be paid $10 million dollars, given 500 Disneyland tickets, and each goose-stepping marcher a brand new color TV set. The nixed deal has sent a wave of official North Korean government protests to Washington.
North Korea, long noted as the most precision marching cadre in the world, and for presenting grand marching spectacles that last for days, has been training night and day for the Pasadena event. Thousands of signs were already made that would have spelled out flashing messages and communist slogans from thousands of North Korean ‘visitors’ who bought pre-paid blocks of seating in the visitors section. Even thousands of shiny new boots were purchased putting a sizable dent in the impoverished governments meager resources.
“Too bad, we even had a several real capitalist running dogs to let loose,” Claimed Koo Fong Wa, Deputy Interior Minister. “Now, I guess we’ll just have to eat them.”
The cancellation was due to the Korean’s refusal to leave their AK47 assault rifles and RPG rocket propelled grenade lauchers at home. Other demands from the Korean leaders was that Kim Il Song had to have a chair that was 12 inches higher than anyone elses.
Secretary of State is appealing the parade officials decision, and promises if the Koreans are left out of the parade, she’ll have them march, along with their weapons, at a Tea Party rally acheduled for March 1st in Washington.
