Happy birthday, Mr. Psychopath: Dennis Rodman says he’s organizing a basketball game in North Korea with former NBA players, including one-time Sonic Vin Baker, as a birthday present for chubby-cheeked despot Kim Jong Un.

Careful, Dennis: Remember the unfortunate uncle who was either blown apart by anti-tank guns or fed to ravenous dogs, depending on which unverified Chinese news report you choose to believe? Turns out he got on the boy dictator’s bad side by giving him the wrong kind of Legos for his birthday last year.
