Top 5 Craziest Kim Jong-il Moments
5: In his first game of golf, he shot 38 under par with 11 holes-in-one. That would be impressive for Tiger Woods on a mini-golf course. In fact, it is much, much better than any round of golf ever recorded.
4: He once planned to import and breed giant rabbits to solve hunger problems in North Korea. Yeah, really.
3: Despite the giant rabbit thing falling-through (and hunger presumably still being a problem), he said: "Unlike in many countries of the capitalist world, [North Korea] is a state free of homelessness, unemployment, prostitution, and starvation." North Korea: where everyone has a home, a job, and food, but no whores. And no giant rabbits, so maybe, actually, no food. And if that's wrong, maybe the others are also wrong, so there may be no job or home. And there may be whores... North Korea: live poor and hungry on street, but get laid if you come into money!
2: To stay young, he was said to inject himself with the blood of virgins. Scientifically literate, image conscious, and ethically-minded? Maybe he is a god!
1: Sorry, this one isn't funny at all. He said: "Our nuclear deterrent will be ... a merciless offensive means to deal a just retaliatory strike to those who touch the country's dignity and sovereignty even a bit..." Given his enormous ego, maybe we're all a little safer without him.
So another dictator is dead. Here's hoping his son and successor is more reasonable and willing to work toward peace. Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
