Happy New Year! Pretend like I’m saying that to you five days from now.
In typical blogger fashion, I’m sharing Prejudice & Politic’s top 10 most popular blog posts for you to either read for the first time or enjoy a second time; it’ll feel just like going back for another helping because the first was so good.
Featured on Freshly Pressed, this Valentine’s Day inspired story has North Korea and South Korea talking about feelings–or lack thereof–over lunch. It playfully touches on some of the ideological differences between these two through fun brother-sister banter.
Remember the time everyone read the news headlines wrong and thought North Korea declared war on America and a big wave of memes were sparked by it? I try to forget. So does America, because in this story he has to wrestle with the press about clickbait.

This non-linear series chronicles the thrilling, emotional, and awkward history of North Korea. In this chapter, North Korea admits a terrible secret to China and asks for something rather uncomfortable as a punishment.

It makes sense that in 2016 a second Trump article would make it into this list. For this story, I took ridiculous Trump quotes and attributed them to countries that could have said them. It’s scary how fitting some of these are.
10. Bridge of Snow
Funny at times, heartwarming at others. Russia and America, two rivals who have been at odds for nearly a century, traverse an icy bridge in the middle of the ocean while sharing jokes, sentiments, and a hint of remorse.
