(Newser) – North Korea is upset with America for staging an "invasion rehearsal" (read: military drills) with South Korea, so naturally it gracefully and diplomatically ... No. It diplomatically did nothing. Instead, Pyongyang opted for playground antics, blasting Secretary of State John Kerry as a "wolf donning the mask of sheep" with a "hideous lantern jaw," the AP reports.

This follows similar insults against "dirty fellow" President Obama and South Korean president and "old prostitute" Park Geun-hye. Kerry's criticism of the North's human rights record might have attracted Pyongyang's ire. Either way, "hey, props for creativity, North Korea," writes Terrence McCoy at the Washington Post.
