Kim Jong, Illin'

By: T.R. Slyder,

How screwed up do you have to be for this picture not seeming as weird as it should. Oddly, it just feels right.

P'yongyanging With Mr. Cooper

By: T.R. Slyder,

I didn't read the captions, but apparently a European vacationer spent some time in P'yongyang and got out with his life and some cool pictures too.

Media Failure

By: T.R. Slyder,

Yesterday I read a lot about Kim Jong Il's health (ok, just this article). He had kept an unusually low profile in recent weeks then on Tuesday skipped an appearance a big propaganda parade, which commemorated 60 years of communist rule in North Korea. So that lead to speculation that his absences were due to him being in filling health, much like how it was Castro's lack of public appearances that ultimately forced his handlers to inform the public that he was in poor health. So today the web was abuzz with questions about his health.

My question is, where are all the "Kim Jong Ill" puns?? I saw nary a headline like, "Kim Jong Ill", "Kim Jong Il ill", "Kim Jong: Ill". Not even the New York Post head a pun headline! If puns were old people, the NY Post would be like their Florida. I mean, it's where puns live. I never thought they'd pass up on an opportunity for a pun, especially one dealing with the Il health (see, the pun can both ways!) of a dictator, but they did! As a pun enthusiast, I was not pleased.

My reaction personified by monkeys (i.e. monkeyified): Somewhere between Shocked and Sad.
