“I’m planning to ride the end-of-the-world wave when those bombs start hitting the Pacific. Cowabunga!” -- Sandy "Surf Dog" Shores
Special Report By Dawn Last
April 1, 2013 (Ocean Beach)-- Hundreds of San Diego residents have flocked to the beach to begin a vigil watching for incoming missiles that the North Korean government announced it intends to launch against U.S. military bases in an effort to turn our nation into a “boiled pumpkin,” in the words of dictator Kim Jun Un.
The U.S. State Department officially maintains that the threats are merely “bellicose rhetoric” and that the missiles can't reach our shores.
Undaunted, San Diego beach residents are organizing “an end of the world party to end all parties,” as a flyer posted in Ocean and Mission Beach proclaims. After Kim Jun Un was photographed with a map of possible targets, San Diego was clearly in the bullseye--a fact not lost on students eager for any excuse to party over spring break.
