Some DPRK odds and ends

Despite there being some real news involving the DPRK at the mo', the KCNA continues to plough its own rather curious furrow.

Consider the delights of being the Man from Abuja:

"Yusuf Amuda Abubakar, Nigerian ambassador to the DPRK, and staff members of his embassy Wednesday did friendship labour on the DPRK-Nigeria Friendship Haksan Cooperative Farm in Hyongjesan District, Pyongyang. They helped the farmers in sowing beans and conversed with officials of the farm during break, deepening the friendly feelings".

I bet they just loved that.

Meanwhile, an anecdote involving an 8 year old Kim:

"Anti-Japanese heroine Kim Jong Suk (that's KJI's mum) visited the building site of Kim Chaek University of Technology...together with young Kim Jong Il early in one spring morning of Juche 38 (1949)...After a while she said: "Let's work in a hurry as lots of people are rendering labor assistance", asking him to bring a brick-carrying frame....Young Kim Jong Il also asked him to make a frame. Surprised by his words, the official said he in his young age could not carry bricks on the back and that he must not do such a work. She and young Kim Jong Il, together with constructors, carried bricks on their backs, going up and down the steep scaffolds".

Always supposing the tale is true, I am sure that the toiling workers were just delighted to have KJI living out his Bob the Builder fanatasies while getting under their feet.
