North Korea: Students required to get Kim Jong-un haircut
bbc ^ | 3 26 14

The state-sanctioned guideline was introduced in the capital Pyongyang about two weeks ago, Radio Free Asia reports. It is now being rolled out across the country - although some people have expressed reservations about getting the look.

"Our leader's haircut is very particular, if you will," one source tells Radio Free Asia. "It doesn't always go with everyone since everyone has different face and head shapes." Meanwhile, a North Korean now living in China says the look is actually unpopular at home because people think it resembles Chinese smugglers. "Until the mid-2000s, we called it the 'Chinese smuggler haircut'," the Korea Times reports.

It seems that haircuts have been state-approved in North Korea for some time - until now people were reportedly only allowed to choose from 18 styles for women and 10 for men. Earlier, North Korea's state TV launched a campaign against long hair, called "Let us trim our hair in accordance with the Socialist lifestyle".

Army recruiting increases 100%. Now you get both food and a huge hat to cover your ugly ass haircut.

from Woody Allen's Bananas!:

Esposito: From this day on, the official language of San Marcos will be Swedish. Silence! In addition to that, all citizens will be required to change their underwear every half-hour. Underwear will be worn on the outside so we can check. Furthermore, all children under 16 years old are now... 16 years old!

Perhaps this is a new population control measure?

Looking on the bright side, at least they didn’t have to get Kim Jong Un’s haircut. I guess that would have been hard to mandate in a country where nobody owns blowdryers (or has electricity to run them).

In hindsight the second half of that from Woody is well disturbing.

The question is will we all have to now get the same haircut as Barry ?

Now if only all Koreans would get a Kim-style frontal lobotomy, the world might be a better place.

Maybe he’s bald and is wondering where he’s going to ever be able to find a toupee.

That is a sick thought. There are still some men in America that don't look like fags.

This is nothing - Hillary has making her females chop their hair, dye it blond, wear black pantsuits, use plastic horse jewellery and wear witch-pointed combat-boot-heeled shoes for twenty years.
