$30 a Night Could Bankroll North Korea

Now that the dollar is so low, and the federal government is handing out billions of dollars a day to investment banks, the United States may need to find creative ways to raise foreign currency — just like North Korea! The Dear Leader Kim Jong Il has decided to turn North Korea's embassy in Berlin, Germany, into a hostel.

Kim Jong Il is hoping that his Cityhostel Berlin, with its 37 rooms at a rate of 20 Euros ($31) a night, will help the broke regime collect foreign currency. Since the Cold War ended, North Korea has sized down the embassy staff that used to foster relations between its fellow communist country — East Germany. Wow, the Euro really is strong, if less than 800 Euros a night can make a difference to an entire country!

If the United States opened a hostel, what would they call it? The Guantanamo Guest Lodge?

Exactly Caterpillar. Perhaps if he is so worried about his dear country as he claims everytime he has to fish around for money because he's spent it all and now his people are starving, he would stop his extravagent lifestyle.

maybe Dear Leader should start selling his 10,000 cherished bottles of wine , Or cut back on eating caviar, flying in sushi from japan and drinking 700,000 bottles worth of Hennessy, while the average korean only makes 900 bucks per year....or spending 20,000,000 on importing cars, better yet he should donate those cars to the new hostel for the foreigners to ride around in.
