Kim Jong-dead

I did not do this. This is not my work. God help me, it might even be real. Tineye found 129 copies of this, and not one (that I could find) with an explanation.

No Photoshop of mine could top this, so I didn’t try.

The two official DPRK sites I know of (here and here) haven’t caught up with the news yet. That probably means screaming chaos behind the scenes for the foreseeable. They’re worth a look anyway — always a zany, madcap romp through the Wonderland of the East.

I’m pretty sure this chubby young man isn’t sleeping too soundly tonight. Kim Jong-un was never officially named heir, he’s the youngest of the three sons, and Kim’s brother-in-law is apparently a contender, too.

If you’ll recall, it took three years for Kim Jong-il to consolidate his power, and even then, his dead father Kim Il-sung remained president. And still is.

My, my…what an interesting year.

sock it to me

But, if you had done it wouldn’t you be somewhat proud. It’s just so ghastly it has a quality all it’s own.

Lord have mercy that’s funny.

Oh, BTW that’s a Kirin beer can. So it’s probably a p-shop.

I always remember how the norcos kidnapped western citizens, including children, to study and breed “super spies.” What a creepy immoral culture.

Didn’t they even let some of them go back to Japan after a few decades of holding them only if they promised to return?

We need a new dead pool – I give the kid two weeks before his auntie and uncle stick a knife in him.

I’m giving up on individual leader names. From now on whoever’s in charge, or appears to be in charge, will be simply Kim Nork Loon.

Heh… I invite everyone to go take a look at the Tumblr called “Kim Jong Il Looking at Things”.

90% of the time he looks like someone’s lost, mildly confused grandfather.

@Uncle Al: in my family we say SumDum Naame, but Kim Nork Loon is perfect.

God help me, but all I can think of when I see Kim Jong-Un is a Korean version of Private Pyle.

Gaaah! This image of Kim is is the first thing I see after I come to this site looking for a pallet cleanser, or retina cleanser rather, after being subjected to the sight of Barney Frank’s manboobs.

Why? Why does the Internet hate my retinas so much to torment them so cruelly?

Argentium:

After careful consideration, I feel that Kim Jong Un looks not so much like Private Pyle, as he looks like Thomas the Tank Engine….

So, Stoaty, tell me: Are any of these reporters going to the gray bar hotel for phone hacking?

 


Comment from mojo

When the “victim” can’t even be bothered to change the default password, it’s not so much “hacking” as “taking advantage of the technically challenged”…

Aw, mojo. I was going to use that for a post (how I was going to squeeze a whole post out of it, I do not know).

Yeah, this “hacking” thing — all the journos did was check various famous people’s phones to see if they’d changed the default password. If not, they listened in.

No, it’s not okay to steal somebody’s car just because they leave the keys in the ignition. But if you leave the keys in the ignition and your car gets stolen, I’m not going to feel awfully sorry for you.

Mojo, one of the “victims” was a murdered 13 year old girl. Other victims were her parents who believed that she was still alive b/c they thought she was accessing her phone when it was the media hacks. In the US there are serious penalties, both civil and criminal, for messing around with other people’s tele-communications.

I’m a slow typist.

The media impeded a murder investigation and caused additional pain to the dead girl’s family. Yeah, I’m going to feel sorry for them.

Here’s some more material for you: What about those superinjuctions? I find British law really bizarre. And can you really get in trouble for making a gay joke?

I forget where I saw it today, but somebody compared Kim Jong Next to the boyscout from “Up”. No Pshop though, just side by side pics.

Perfect.

Well, yeah, I feel bad for Milly Dowler’s parents. Although, it is not true, as reported, that journos deleted her messages — they simply timed out. But the rest of the celebs? Not so much.

Redd: So far you’ve proved that reporters (some of them) are scummy jerks. Which really says nothing about the process, only how it was used.
