Holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy since June, Wikileaks
founder Julian Assange is trying the patience of British authorities, who want to extradite him back to his home country of Sweden, where officials there want to talk to him about an ongoing sexual assault investigation.
Assange was granted diplomatic asylum inside the embassy, and said he fears being sent home to Sweden will eventually lead to him being extradited to the United States where he would face charges over Wikileaks’ acquisition and posting of sensitive diplomatic cables.
And to date, he hasn’t left the embassy, leading to Scotland Yard’s finest scratching their heads for the best way to lure him out.

A spokesman for Kim Jong-un confirmed yesterday that the North Korean Leader has filed a civil lawsuit against South Korean recording artist Psy for allegedly stealing the lyrics and the horse dance made popular in the video for Psy’s worldwide smash hit, “Gangnam Style.” The suit said that Kim Jong-Il wrote the lyrics to the song and made up the popular horse dance just days before he passed away on Sept. 17th
of last year.
“Before his honorable and heroic death last year,” the suit said, “the Supreme Leader wrote the words to ‘Gangnam Style’ in under five minutes as a joke to his family, and also created the horse dance that the defendant so blatantly stole, also to show to his family. There was video of the Supreme Leader singing and dancing at dinner just before he passed away, and it is believed the defendant stole that video as well.”
