More fun with words, this time from Andy Borowitz: “U.S. to Respond to North Korea with ‘Strongest Possible Adjectives’ Obama: We are Prepared to Consult Thesaurus.”

One day after North Korea launched a successful test of a nuclear weapon, President Obama said that the United States was prepared to respond to the threat with “the strongest possible adjectives.”

In remarks to reporters at the White House, Mr. Obama said that North Korea should fear the “full force and might of the United States’ arsenal of adjectives” and called the missile test “reckless, reprehensible, objectionable, senseless, egregious and condemnable.”

If need be, apparently Obama will not shy away from employing some well-timed adverbs, either.
