Humour’s a funny thing

What’s funny to you or I may not be to anyone else.

Case in point – SpecSavers‘ press ad in the UK today over the Korean flag mixup at #London2012.

I can see the humour certainly. But I wonder how the Koreas might especially with both flags portrayed together like that. Pretty sensitive issues for both, especially North Korea.
