Bears weep for Kim Jong-il – North Korea’s Generalissimo
HOW did you mark what would have been the 70th birthday of North Korea’s Dear Leader, Kim Jong-il? Well, his son and heir Kim Jong-un and other top knobs stood by a massive picture of of the Dear Leader in Pyonyang. There were TV specials, flowers, fireworks, military marches and a massive bronze statue of the Dear Leader and his dad Kim Il-sung sat on his ‘n’ his horses. Kim Jong-il also scored a new title. He is and will be the “Generalissimo”.
And that as not all:
The Guardian: “Events on Wednesday included an international skating show and synchronised swimming. Both opened with mournful odes to Kim Jong-il and ended with a new song for his son: ‘We Will Defend General Kim Jong-un at the Risk of Our Lives.'”
Sing. SING! SING!!!!!
The Times say the birds:
“Magpies hover over significant landmarks, cawing out their appalling cries of lament. Mighty mountains have spent days shrouded in a mysterious blood-red aura. Bears have been spotted weeping.”
No pressure, Maggie Thatcher. No pressure at all…
