Jong 2:16

It's that time of year again, when North Koreans muster whatever strength they can to stand up and cheer Dear Leader Kim Jong-il as he gets another year closer to death.

Yep, that's what I had planned who write this year, before the Dear Leader became the Peasant Under Glass. It would have been followed by an engineered excuse to post a picture of a beautiful young woman, along with links to past posts marking the Dear Leader's birthday (I'm getting lazy in my older-than-before age).

But he's dead, so I'll just post the links (2010 and 2011), along with the big story marking his birthday, the unveiling of a statue of he and his father on horseback, at the Mansudae Art Studio. North Korea's KCNA has the story, which says it it was unveiled in time for the Day of the Shining Star.

Half of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse series. Collect them all!

Why does this statue remind me of a scene from The Simpsons where Homer is forced to return the key to the city?
MAYOR QUIMBY:
These look like teeth marks.

HOMER:
I thought there was chocolate inside... Well, why was it wrapped in foil?

QUIMBY:
It was never wrapped in foil!
Seriously, when the revolution comes, the starving masses are going to be sorely disappointed after they storm this thing.
