Curious about how gigantic weirdo Dennis Rodman's trip to North Korea is going? It's going great! Today, Rodman took in an exhibition basketball game with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. They watched members of the Harlem Globetrotters take on a North Korean "dream team," and then became besties for life. Vice, which sent a crew to document Rodman's trip, captured some adorable pictures of the pair yukking it up and bonding during the game. And then there's this, from the Associated Press:

"You have a friend for life," Rodman told Kim before a crowd of thousands at a gymnasium where they sat side by side, chatting as they watched players from North Korea and the U.S. play, Alex Detrick, a spokesman for the New York-based VICE media company, told The Associated Press.


The good vibes continued to flow after the game, when Rodman was invited back to Kim's palace for a decadent, ten-course feast. Then everybody got drunk:

What a whimsical world we live in.
