Top 5 Craziest Kim Jong-il Moments

Kim Jong-il is dead.  For well over a decade, this crazy person (the guy staring at the corn in the picture) ruled North Korea in what most of the world has described as "repressive."  Why do I call him a crazy person?  Read these top 5 craziest things about him, and tell me if you have a better name.

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.

  2. Michele Bachmann must be one of his students. She thinks we'll eradicate unemployment if we do away with a minimum wage...that way jobs could be created "at all levels." Meaning if you pay all the unemployed people a few cents an hour, voila - you've eliminated all unemployment. Problem solved.

  3. totally amused to read the 5 craziest things about him.

    I like the 5th and 3rd things very much.

    By the way, where have you collected 'em. Are you a fan of him?

  4. What the hell does this have to do with Michele Bachman?  I'm not a huge fan myself, but what the hell do your left wing ideas have to do with this?  Not sure if you've taken basic history, but NK is communist as was KJL.  Pretty close to extreme left wingers, including those who think the minimum wage doesn't breed mediocrity.

  5. Judging by the picture, I'd say that the whole injection thing (if it were really true) was ineffective.

  6. He's stupid. She's stupid. And there's the connection. Like her quote just today: 
    ‎"I am a real person. I don't even know how to be a politician." At least the second half of that quote is true.

  7. Well, the problem is that that comparison makes no sense whatsoever if you have any knowledge of how the economy works.  You're talking about a dictator throwing pennies at people to keep them subdued (typical liberal entitlement).  You obviously have not done the research nor looked at the economic history regarding minimum wage.  Here’s a good example of why minimum wage is irrelevant: When I was in high school, I worked at Taco Bell (great free food by the way).  They were only paying me $4.75 an hour.  A friend told me that Wendys needed people and were paying $5.75.  I interviewed and got the job.  Two months later I got a call from my former manager at Taco Bell offering me $6.50 and a shift manager position (because I was such a valuable commodity at Taco Bell…don’t laugh).  This is competition.  This is the markets.  And this is Capitalism, which sets us apart from the rest of the world and has defined our success and quality of life.  Make sure you understand the in’s and out’s of economic issues before you start bashing a candidate (and again, not defending Michele Bachman).  The dems are for minimum wage because it makes many of those who vote for them happy…

  8. Nah, I'm not a fan of his, but the crazy things he said and did were broadcast on the news occasionally (in the U.S.--I don't know where you're from).

  9. I get the sense it wasn't true, but either way, yeah, it didn't work!

  10. Herman Cain and the others of HIS ilk could've used someone like Jong at the next debate to make THEM look good!
