Today's gems from the 'DPR'K

This: "Troubles still lie in the way of the Koreans for achieving national unity and reunifying the country owing to the confrontation moves against reunification of the outside forces and flunkeyist treacherous forces following their lead".

Beats 'brigandish' by a nose, I think.

And this:

"Today the Korean people are vigorously turning out in the efforts for accomplishing the revolutionary cause of Juche, loudly singing revolutionary hymns including the song "Generalissimo Kim Il Sung Is with Us" created in response to the ardent desire and will to hold him in high esteem as the eternal leader of the revolution and the sun of Juche".

And from yesterday:

"The DPRK team surpassed its U.S. rival in the number of ball possession, corner kick and shooting of ball into the goal mouth throughout the finals. The DPRK team snubbed its U.S. rival 2-1, winning the first title of the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup New Zealand 2008".

The sports pages in these parts would be much enlivened by a tad more DPRK-speak, I think.

I imagine an array of Winston Smith characters bashing out reams of evermore ridiculous prose to entertain themselves, the challenge being to take the mickey but not too obviously to land them up on the farms.

That thought comes as a comfort.

and still only Tuesday !

I am inspired to pen my own loudly-sung revolutionary hymn, to be created in response to the ardent desire and will to bury Brown in low marshland

provisional title: Gordissimo Brown is no longer with us (he is away with the fairies)

Nick - it is a goldmine, is it not?

I hope that Calliope has you firmly in her grasp.
