U.S. student arrested in North Korea for stealing a propaganda poster gets fifteen years’ hard labor. 

This is another Darwin intervention.   The actual reason the man visited Korea has not been published, but he stated he stole the poster to hang in a church.  

Fundamentalist Christians have been traveling to many third-world and hostile countries as ‘Christian ambassadors’ and I suspect this is the case. 

However, traveling to a country that hates and vilifies American – a country that has draconian rule and laws, and while there stealing a state propaganda poster does not place you high on the Darwinian survival scale.

A prime candidate for a Darwin Award.


  1. Our news said he was traveling with a group tour but it didn't mention what kind or whether Christian fundamentalism was involved. Even so, I feel bad for the poor bugger. "15 years hard labour" means exactly that in North Korea.

  2. I don't feel bad for anyone who does something stupid while in a foreign country and expects to get off scott free for his actions. His stupidity started when he crossed the border into North Korea. I just hope the U.S. doesn't bail him out, but I have a feeling we will.

  3. Why would anyone go to North Korea? The poor bastards are suffering enough without some fundamentalist assholes making their lives worse. Not much likelihood he will contribute to the gene pool for a few years anyhow.

  4. you stick your head in the lions mouth? getting yo'head bit off.
