The Pirate Bay's 'Move' To Korea Was a Prank 142

judgecorp writes "The Pirate Bay's announcement that it was moving to North Korea was a prank, making fun of gullible readers. Admitting the hoax, the site said 'You can't seriously cheer the 'fact' that we moved our servers to bloody North Korea. Applauds to you who told us to f*** off. Always stay critical. Towards everyone!'" The essence of a good troll: so absurd it could just be true.

    Don't know about elsewhere, but I grew up in northern Michigan were there were quite a few Polish families who homesteaded in the 19th century. The soil quality there was so poor (mostly sand) that harvests were generally pretty poor. Many immigrant families ended up with three meals a day of cornmeal mush and potatoes, and children raised on that kind of diet tend to mentally stunted if not outright retarded. In our area at least the Polack jokes had some relevance.
