Apparently, North Korean media has yet to report the news of Muammar Qaddafi's downfall, and Kim Jong Il doesn't want the 200 North Koreans who had been working in Libya to return home and tell everyone that it's possible to, you know, overthrow dictators. So now those 200 North Koreans have been banned from ever coming back. Which is amazing news for them, obviously. That's like being banned from Maynard's pawn-shop rape dungeon in Pulp Fiction. We don't know why that's the first thing we thought of, but we're going with it.
