North Korea

A Pooka Is a Sometimes Food


As you've probably heard by now, North Korea hopes to solve its little mass starvation problem by breeding enormous rabbits. Tom Palmer explains why it won't work:

they're not very economical as a food source. Huge rabbits require huge amounts of food to make them so big. The socialist planner wants a big rabbit. The entrepreneur asks whether there is a positive difference between the cost of feeding the rabbit and the value of the rabbit. For the giant ones, it seems that the difference is negative. But that wouldn't stop a good socialist. After all, if you have a giant hunger problem, the answer must be giant foods.

On a happier note, North Korea claims it's willing to kill its nuclear weapons program. In exchange it wants fuel aid—and perhaps, in a secret side agreement, some enormous pellets for the bunnies.
