[News] Kim Jong Undead?

News and Discussion on the potential death of North Korea’s despot and the aftermath.

Maybe. I think at this point they're in a situation where they need to present a body, living or dead. I'm seeing reports that citizens in North Korea are panic buying goods in anticipation of Kim being dead and the fallout thereof.

Please Weekend At Burnie's him. Please. PLEASE!

Well, I mean, this would be a very good reason to stock up on toilet paper.

North Korea leader Kim Jong Un visited a fertilizer factory, North Korean state media reported Saturday, marking his first public appearance in three weeks.

Kim’s absence from the public eye has fueled speculation he might have fallen ill or even died, although it is not unusual for him to be absent for similar periods. His visit was reported by state broadcaster Korea Central Television, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency.

Kim visited the Sunchon Phosphatic Fertilizer Factory on Friday, Yonhap reported.

North Korean state media also said they would never lie to reporters.

Well something's definitely full of sh*t here.

Clearly he was in a cocoon only to return as Kim Jong Dos

I also would've accepted "Schrödinger's Kim"

There is speculation that the photos shown are of a double. Maybe he's just dosed on up on steroids though, and chipped a tooth for some reason.

I've seen those photos and if that's Kim Jong Un, he wasn't juicing like Jose Canseco, he was juicing like Babe Ruth.

Yeah I was thinking more prednisone than anabolic.

Given the way this year has been going, I fully expected him to re-emerge via a Slim Shady parody video.
