    N. Korea: Sorry for Apartment Collapse

    In a highly rare move, the North Korean government actually apologized for something.

It was revealed that the accident took place nearly a week ago on last Tuesday and that rescue efforts had already ended. To truly convey how sorry he was, Kim Jong Un reportedly “sat up all night, feeling painful after being told about the accident." Cue the world's tiniest violin.
