North Korea has threatened to launch a nuclear strike on Britain unless the BBC reveals the secret location of its popular children’s program, In the Night Garden.
According to the offical North Korean news agency, supreme leader Kim Jong Un has become increasingly frustrated with the BBC’s refusal to let him visit the set of his favourite television show.
Kim Jong Un has also taken offence at the recent response by British Prime Minister David Cameron that the North Korean leader can visit the Night Garden “in his dreams”.
According to Bob Smokington-Waugh, an analyst specialising in North Korean affairs, Kim Jong Un’s love of In the Night Garden is no joke.
“Tombliboo Unn is the only Western figure that Kim Jong Un relates to. He sees Tombliboo Unn as a kindred spirit and it’s not just their similar names.”
“Both are round, cuddly characters who love to wear green and red and brush their teeth. They also like sweet things, often misplace their clothing and, let’s face it, they are both famous for speaking nonsense on TV.”
Mr Smokington-Waugh urges the British government to nevertheless take the North Korean rhetoric seriously.
“At the very least, future episodes of In the Night Garden should give Tombliboo Unn as much, if not more, screentime as his friends Tombliboo Ooo and Tombliboo Eee.”
“The future of world peace may well depend upon it.”
The standoff with Kim Jong Un is the latest in a string of incidents involving In The Night Garden characters.
Prime Minister Cameron has so far resisted calls to have In the Night Garden included in the list of programs axed by his Conservative government. Even so, Cameron has warned that the BBC’s funding will be significantly reduced should the country be annihilated by a North Korean nuclear strike.
