Kim Jong Un, shown here in the most positive light .

The people who hacked Sony Pictures Entertainment may not actually be North Korean (it appears, for now, as if they're merely massively deluded a-holes sympathetic to the hermit regime), but it's become increasingly clear that the sole motivation for their attack was the upcoming Seth Rogen and James Franco film The Interview. The movie, a buddy film where two movie stars are enlisted by the CIA to kill the North Korean dictator, culminates in the glorious explosion of Kim Jong-Un's head.

Since the leaks started, however, the fallout has mostly been a major business disaster for Sony, an ethical problem for journalists (they seem to have gotten over it), an embarrassment for certain celebrities and Sony employees, and an amusement for readers.
