Kim Jong Il's Christmas presents

Looks like Santa decided that Kim had been 'nice', despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

From the Pakistan ambassador:

"a floral basket and a congratulatory letter".

Shanxi film studio:

"General Secretary Kim Jong Il was presented with Chinese film "The Tender of Feeling" by the Shanxi Film Studio, China".

But neither socks not handkerchiefs, apparently. However, he would have known this in advance, "thanks to the clairvoyance of the brilliant commander of Mt. Paektu".

Mind you, odd things are afoot:

"From early morning on the lunar New Year's Day people made a formal bow of respect to the aged and elders and called on their friends to exchange greetings and schoolchildren..." (sentence curtailed for comic effect)

I liked ...the participants gave full play to their protean skills and talents in the events of ssirum, seesaw, yut-game and so on which they had polished during breaks of work.

Most people here use their 'breaks of work' for a cigarette and a gossip. Is that where Western Civilisation is failing?

Breaks of work sounds more like taking a break fro doing nothing and actually working for 20 minutes or so.


'National odor",and here I thought it just my wet socks and it turns out that westerly wind is rotted fish and pickled squid eyes from North Korea.
