Finally, Something Bizarre from North Korea

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in News, Odds & Ends

North Korea just hasn’t been the same without Dear Leader. There have been so few bizarre pronouncements since Kim Jong-il died, it’s been really boring for me. Nothing to make fun of, except that fake rocket press conference thing. >sad face< But he is slowly growing his own library of pictures of himself looking at […]


Crazy News Roundup

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

So much weird crap happened this week that just thinking about posting all of it made my head ache. So here is a roundup of strange news from the past few days. North Korea’s Awesome Hotel (awesome from the outside, anyhow) North Korea has been oddly quiet lately. Just when I was beginning to think […]

North Korea Will Continue to Suck for the Forseeable Future

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

Chipmunk-cheeked brand-new dictator Kim Jong-Un let his sad little country know that he doesn’t have any plans to make its populace’s lives better in a speech he gave at the end of festivities to celebrate his grandfather’s birthday, even though his grandfather has been dead for quite some time at this point (well, Americans celebrate […]


North Korea: Not Just Fun and Games

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Books

Another NPR find… So, I like to make fun of the contained (for now) insanity that is North Korea as much as the next girl. It’s too surreal to believe most of the time, so what else can we do? Until you hear something like this, and realize that North Korea really is a hellish […]

Why I Miss Kim Jong-Il

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

Note to readers: if you type ‘crying bear’ into Google Image Search, you get some seriously disturbing results. So this is totally old news, but I wasn’t around to post about it so…I’m sure anyone who has read my posts on North Korea’s Dear Leader probably thinks I was dancing in the streets when he […]

Cannibalism in the Hermit State?

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

Holy shit, you guys. I joke about cannibalism pretty often, like referring to my cat/husband/son as my emergency food supply, or saying I’m so hungry I would eat another person…and Ravenous is a pretty cool movie…but it’s not so funny when people in North Korea are so fucking hungry they eat each other. Holy Crap! […]

North Korea Hacks You for Cash!

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

You’d think that if Dear Leader was really hard up for cash, he could sell some of his uranium on Craigslist or something. Or some of the statues of himself. I’d probably shell out some cash to get one of those portraits of him as a cowboy or Santa Claus or something (seriously, I saw […]

No Tap Dancing for You, Dear Leader!

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

I’m not sure how I missed this, but a week ago, Italy foiled Kim Jong-Il’s master plan to put on a lavish tap-dancing performance in Pyongyang. Damn You, Italians!   “In December 2010, a shipment of high-quality tap-dancing shoes was blocked at Orio al Serio Airport (Milan),” said the report by the so-called U.N. Panel […]


Pyongyang Portraits

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

I found this neat collection of photos from my favorite fucked-up country, North Korea, online a couple days ago. And by ‘neat’, I mean totally CREEPY. Pyongyang Portraits The capital seems to be utterly depopulated except for a few posed, unsmiling people in yuppie clothes. The comments make the article though; here’s my favorite: excuse […]


North Korea, I Got Your Hot Shopping Trend Right Here

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

God, I hope North Korea never changes. Anytime I need a laugh or feel bad about where I live, a bit of fucked-up news from that country makes everything right with the world again. Apparently, South Korean professors like to interview recent defectors to find out what’s hot among North Korean consumers. Food probably isn’t […]

Hacking North Korea

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

Huh. I guess even though Dear Leader created and maintains the entire Internet all  by himself, even he was no match for some South Korean hackers: Hacked! I wish I knew how to hack things. I would post stuff like “Running down looters in my hot rod, the new WoW is soooooo fun!!!11111  <3 Kim […]
