Phobia Friday™ – Heads Up

Korean hot air balloons

Ma, he’s littering on my side of the room.
But he started it.
Sound familiar?
It’s not two kids squabbling this time. It’s North and South Korea.
According to the, when North Korea conducted its fourth underground nuclear test in early January, South Korea responded by sending balloons carrying propaganda across the border.
Within a week, the North responded by floating balloons into the South filled with used toilet paper, cigarette butts, and propaganda messages. They were fitted with a timer and small explosive device designed to drop the unpleasant payload in South Korean territory.
Trash falling from the sky. That’s enough to give anyone a trash phobia.
What’s next? A burning bag of dog poop at the border crossing?
