1. This Is How World War III Begins — North Korea Calls Seth Rogen-James Franco Movie An 'Act Of War'

In case you're wondering which absurd little piece of straw was going to be the one to finally break the mighty back of human civilization, the smart money seems to be on North Korea's continued indignation over the upcoming Seth Rogen-James Franco film The Interview, in which their characters attempt to assassinate Kim Jong-un. Ratcheting up from the official condemnation the country issued a few days ago, a North Korean spokesperson is now threatening retaliation if the comedy is released to theaters, saying: "Making and releasing a movie on a plot to hurt our top-level leadership is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated."
