Dennis Rodman makes a new friend

George Galloway revealed last year that he and weird former NBA basketball star Dennis Rodman became “firm friends” while appearing together on “Celebrity Big Brother” in 2006.

George must be seething with jealousy now that Rodman seems to have made a new BFF.

Yes, that’s Rodman and North Korea’s Dictator for Life (and perhaps beyond) Kim Jong [...]

Then and Now (Another One About Simon Jenkins’ Being a Twat)

Richard Littlejohn in 1994:
Does anyone really give a monkey’s about what happens in Rwanda? If the Mbongo tribe wants to wipe out the Mbingo tribe then as far as I am concerned that is entirely a matter for them.
Simon Jenkins in 2012:
North Korea has fired a big rocket into the sky, put a satellite in [...]

US Analysists Confirm North Korea Success With Unha-3 Carrier Rocket

Presumably Kim Jong-il is looking down from his heavenly abode as the Dear Larder’s second attempt at placing a satellite in orbit appears to have succeeded.  Of course it is to test ICBM techology and not a weather satellite.
And, according to the Chosun Ilbo, they had help from the Iranians.
Gene adds: US officials report that the [...]

Three generations of punishment

Sometimes it’s a little too easy to laugh at what seems to us the utter absurdity of North Korea’s ruling dynasty (now in its third generation) and the worship they shamelessly encourage.
But we should never forget the sinister and brutal side of life in that hell.

Nor should we ever forget that the Communist Party of [...]

In the Chosun of Peace We Enthuastically Reach for the Sky

An essential function of ICBMs is that there are capable of traversing continents, just as nuclear tests are expected to be accompanied by at least attempts at tests. In North Korea, as the Dear Larder grapples with the new-found responsibilities following the departure of his father – to a netherworld stalked by shades of his [...]

In the Chosun of Peace We Enthuastically Stand Beside Tractors…

… because there is no fuel and all the unicorns are in their stables.
Kim Jong-il may have been born under a double rainbow. He was not, as far as we have been told thus far, born in a unicorn stable. There is, however, every possibility now that the Juche propaganda machine soon will be peddling [...]

Guardian Newspaper Cited Approvingly by Pyongyang


As I float through the gently undulating stems of the Asphodel Meadows, it is undeniably challenging to compose this message. I am fortunate, however, to have encountered computers and other data storage devices before my demise so can be channeled through one.
My fellow shade, [...]

Juche Marriage in Korea

Perhaps with fond memories of childhood trips, Kim Jong-eun has confirmed he has tied the knot. There are doubts about the identity of his excellent horse-like lady, with BBC News naming her as Ro Sol-ju and the reports I worked with here naming her as Hyon Song-wol.
One thing is certain, though. Liz Lemon [...]

Pretty Please Can We Invest?

As Kim Jong-eun surveys his next meal – like his father before him – as his old friend and Kim Jong-il’s sushi chef, Kenji Fujimoto announces a return to the Hermit Kingdom, let us move away from totalitarian cuisine and arresting mental images of the Kims consuming fish like Jabba the Hutt.
In September 2011, RoK [...]

Another Wretched Piece on CiF

After Charlie Skelton’s brainfart on Syria, some nincompoop at Comment is Free has geared-up the intellectual diving technology and plumbed new depths of moral deficiency (Tm. Lamia) by commissioning another nutter.
This time it is new arrival Paul Watson, who is described as an author and journalist (his oeuvre appears to be limited to [...]
