Is there any story out of North Korea that you wouldn’t believe? Seriously, think about it. It’s a different world over there. That’s why people readily accepted the story of the dictator Kim Jong-un feeding his rivals to rabid dogs.
Who cares if that one turned out to be fake? The real stories happening there — the ones we never hear about — are likely even more crazy.
So I personally have absolutely no hesitation believing Jong-un is seriously ill from eating too much imported cheese. Seems par for the course.
North Korea’s demented despot dictator is reportedly ballooning in weight after getting hooked on Emmental, a cheese produced in Switzerland.
The 31-year-old is said to be importing huge quantities of the savory Swiss treat — which he first discovered while studying in the European country as a child.
Rumors surrounding his dairy dependence surfaced after he appeared on TV with a swollen face.
And they claimed he was bulking himself up in a bid to look like his grandfather.
“North Koreans think being fat is good, unlike South Koreans who want to be skinny,” defector Cho Myung-Chul, of the Korea Institute for International Economic Policy, told the Mirror.
“There is a high chance Jong-un intentionally gained weight to look like Il-sung,” he added.
Sure. Why not? Tremendous way to go out. Lot of honor in overdosing on dairy.
