If only we'd known

Back, by popular demand, DPRK-watch:

"The 13th national exhibition of invented sports apparatuses and goods was held at the Badminton Gymnasium in Chongchun Street from Nov. 17 to 20. Presented to the exhibition were more than 1,150 pieces of sports apparatuses and goods of at least 170 kinds invented and manufactured by many units across the country including those in the sports field".

These are not just any old tennis rackets, these are M&S DPRK tennis rackets:

"Exhibits...showcased well the achievements made by officials and other working people in the production of sports apparatuses and goods in the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance and fortitude".

It's the "invented" bit which gets me. Whats new? Double-headed golf clubs? Glow-in-the-dark cricket bats? Vibrating ping-pong balls?

The mind boggles.
