Their greatest hits in Pyongyang include “Let’s study”, “My Country is the Best!” and “Let’s Support Our Supreme Commander with Arms.”

We here at The Goldwater are of course open to all styles and are willing to consider anything new, but don’t know of the International Olympic Committee is ready for this.
