The Worm returns.

Ambassador Dennis Rodman continues his bromance with Kim Jong Un this week in North Korea.

He hopes to appeal to his “friend for life” Kim to do him “a solid” and release imprisoned Christian missionary Kenneth Bae. Nah, just kidding:

“I’m not going to North Korea to discuss freeing Kenneth Bae,” the Basketball Hall of Fame member told Reuters in a telephone interview. “I’m just going there on another basketball diplomacy tour.”

Things are getting serious between the two lovebirds. It won’t just be “basketball diplomacy.” Get ready for liquor diplomacy!

An actual Rodman quote on his romantic plans:

“There should be a lot of Bad Boy vodka there already,” he joked. “They love whisky, they love tequila, they love vodka, stuff like that, so hoping we’re going over to have a nice dinner, sit and talk about communication and sports,” he said.

Not by a long shot:

But wait … would we miss an opportunity if Rodman stayed in North Korea?
