Fresh on the heels of the revelation that Kim Jong-Il’s recent disappearance from public view was due to the fact that he was working on his latest screenplay, the “new hit movie” Diary of a Student Girl, there was this news:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – North Korea may be preparing an underground test for a nuclear bomb, ABC News said on Thursday, citing unidentified U.S. officials.

It quoted a senior military official as saying a U.S. intelligence agency had recently observed “suspicious vehicle movement” at a suspected North Korean test site.

A senior State Department official told the network, “It is the view of the intelligence community that a test is a real possibility.”

Asked about the report, a senior U.S. official told Reuters: “We have no new evidence to support that.”

ABC reported the activity at the suspected test site included the unloading of large reels of cable outside an underground facility called Pungyee-yok in northeast North Korea.

Of course, large reels of cable could mean that Kim Jong-Il is ready to start principal shooting on Diary of a Student Girl, and that the mysterious Pungyee-yok underground facility is actually a state-of-the-art soundstage. Then again, maybe I’m just too caught up in Diary of a Student Girl fever to think straight.
