Dennis Rodman heads to North Korea to celebrate his bro Kim Jong Un’s birthday

Despite the fact that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un assassinated his own uncle a couple of weeks ago, his BFF and insane person Dennis Rodman is headed to the desolate wasteland to celebrate his bro’s birthday.

The Associated Press reports that Rodman is planning to gather 12 former NBA players to play a Jan. 8 basketball game for Kim’s birthday.

“I can’t control what they do with their government, I can’t control what they say or how they do things here,” he told the AP. “I’m just trying to come here as a sports figure and try to hope I can open the door for a lot of people in the country.”

Rodman has visited North Korea twice before, a country where people either a) cannot ever enter or b) never get out of alive.

Rodman must have a lot of faith in Kim, who has not only executed his own flesh-and-blood, but a former girlfriend. The only thing keeping Rodman alive must be his sweet tats.

“I’m very proud to say he’s my friend, because he hasn’t done anything to put a damper, to say any negative things about my country,” Rodman said, who clearly hasn’t read a newspaper or checked Wikipedia in decades or perhaps ever.
