Guy escapes North Korea on driftwood, gets drunk, strips to celebrate9/13/2012
Some people will do anything to get out of North Korea — including floating the hell out of there on a hunk of driftwood. A man was found by South Korean cops, drunk as a skunk, wearing only his underwear and hiding out in a house on the island of Ganghwa, just south of the hotly contested border. "The man said he crossed to the South, holding onto a floating object to waters off the coast," a Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesman told reporters, referring to a wooden board that had drifted due to floods in the North. The South Korean government apparently takes a fairly laissez-faire approach to anyone who can manage to get out of North Korea and despite his drunkenness, home invading and partial nudity, the man will most likely be allowed to stay.
