Kim Jong Il - the smoker's friend

It would seem he is not all bad:

"He also gave on-the-spot guidance to the Hoeryong Taesong Cigarette Factory....Seeing varieties of cigarettes being churned out from each machine and workshops kept neat and tidy, he expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the interior and exterior of the factory are spruced up in a hygienic and cultured manner and quality cigarettes are mass-produced thanks to the successful maintenance of its equipment and technical control. He advanced tasks to be carried out by the factory, calling on it to keep the cigarette production going at a high rate and further improve its quality.


And here he is taking a drag, indoors:



So, is it a case of 'You are never alone with a Hoeryong Taesong', 'Hoeryong Taesong country - where the flavour is' or 'Happiness is a cigarette called Hoeryong Taesong'.

Meanwhile, Nick D has found another pic of KJI and suggests a caption competition, and I think he might be on to something:


"Kim Jong Il hails a breakthrough in socialist zimmer frame technology".

Sticking with the DPRK, a discovery in the Miami Herald today: "North Korea's Kim Il Sung once wrote a love sonnet to the mimeograph machine".

Can't find any further references, but I reckoned that was too good not to take to a narrower audience.

no really, the hair transplant looks great, Dear Leader, and I'm sure the cornea grafts are good too. Now just three paces forward to your hospital bed and a well-deserved night's rest
