Kim Jong Il to drag moon back to North Korea

It’s testament to the moon-eyed insanity of Kim Jong Il’s regime that I didn’t realize this was from the Onion until about a minute in. I think my favorite line is: “The plan is perfect. We have already succeeded.”

    The one downside of ending this insane, oppressive regime will be the drying up of the last source of batshit-crazy commie/nationalist propaganda.

    “Dear Leader provides on-the-spot direction of subway workers!”

    Several years back BB (I think) pointed to a site full of DPRK postage stamps. Even the cute funny animal ones were creepy; one bunny had a big knife for stabbing imperialists.

    Having seen plenty of the real thing, I find this Onion parody to be absolutely brilliant. It’s only about one percent more absurd than actual DPRK propaganda. If it weren’t for the clip of ROK president Lee Myung Bak, I wouldn’t be positive it’s parody. Well done, Onion!

    anyone got a list of all Nork embassies and consulates? With email addresses?

    Mr. President: We cannot allow a Moon-Capture gap!

    Uh, yes. That’s exactly what happened: did you need a blow-by-blow?

    What was the point of that comment? That was some of the lamest corrective snark ever.

    I guess you missed the ONN intro at the beginning, or didn’t recognize it?

    Wow. The Onion does some amazing parodies. The attention to detail–and the expense involved in creating it–is remarkable.

    Sometimes I just want to get a sex change, get a job as a bartender, move to where ever the fuck you live and hope for the best.

    Giant enemy crabs? Awesome.

    Gotta keep your moon hand strong.

    “Moving on, the American president revealed himself to be a serpent today.”

    Bahh, old news, we already knew that.

    a gem: on screen captions read: “source video provided by the North Korean Committee for Space Conquest”
