Re: Kim Jong Undone?

We better be cool with this thread. He may end up being our neighbor, and maybe even an EF member. He speaks Swiss German too.

Re: Kim Jong Undone?

He must need a sick note by now. Is this reasonable cause for immediate dismissal?

Not very well, apparently. Evidently he wasn't the brightest of students.

Maybe he hasn't finished his homework and has gone into hiding to escape the wrath of his teachers?

Re: Kim Jong Undone?

This is either a big pre-release hype or a potential omen for Seth Rogen's new movie:

The Interview

If it is real, I'd be on the next airplane with my village stonemason to go carve some new iconic statues to line Pyongyang's streets.

Re: Kim Jong Undone?

It does not bode well for someone considered semi-divine to call in sick for 30+ days. Could be throwing a tantrum in a padded room. Could be undergoing re-education. Could have been poisoned. Could be truly ill. In any case, he has diminished. They are grooming his sister Yo Jung.

We are likely to see more rational reasoning from a group of thinkers than erratic actions from a tyranical few, I hope.

In passable Swiss German, possibly. Or not, given his alleged academic shortcomings.

The only understandable word was " Cheiebe seich ". Sorry two words

Re: Kim Jong Undone?

I know that it might not be as exciting news as the "twin blast in Turkey" but something to remember that North Korea celebrates her 70th anniversary of their communist system aka ruling Worker's Party.

North Korea holds huge parades for 70th anniversary

And a touch of history lesson what had happened back then:

Re: Kim Jong Undone?

He ruled with an iron fist.

He still has masses of brainwashed followers who worshipped him like a god.

Some said he was a megalomaniac, although never to his face.

They had a strange sense of loyalty to his insular regime, hanging on to obsolete technology, whatever the cost.

I still miss Steve Jobs.

South Korean news sources believe he is undergoing ankle operations, and will likely return. South Korea is not too keen on absorbing North Korea overnight. They are doing too well without the burden.

He will probably reappear .5 meter taller in a month or 2!

Naah, nothing so drastic for him.





He'll just have everyone else shortened by a foot.
