Skip to comments.Giant Rabbits and Double Rainbows: The 10 Most Insane Delusions of Kim Jong-il

With the death of Kim Jong-il, the world loses one of the greatest self-aggrandizing fantasists of all time. Here are ten of the craziest Jong-il stories floating out there:
1. North Korean schools teach children that Jong-il's birth was "supernatural." He was born in a log cabin inside a secret base on the sacred Mt. Paekdu, the story goes, and his arrival was accompanied by the apparition of a new star. The seasons then spontaneously changed from winter to spring, and a double-rainbow appeared, followed by a talking iceberg. (Western accounts say he was born in a guerrilla camp in Russia.) 2. In 2006, Jong-il learned that a man in Germany breeds giant rabbits. He found them delightful and decided they were the key to solving North Korea's widespread hunger problem:
So Kim gets in touch with 68-year-old Karl Szmolinsky of Berlin, the world's foremost breeder of giant rabbits, and says he wants Szmolinsky to come to Pyongyang and set up a farm to breed these rabbits. For Kim believes that the meat yielded by these rabbits will end his people's starvation. [...]
Undeterred, Kim pays for 12 rabbits, at a cost of about $115 each. He tells Szmolinsky that the rabbits will be kept at a petting zoo in Pyongyang and, in a few months, Szmolinsky will be flown in to help really set up a farm for breeding.
In February of 2007, about five or six months later, Szmolinsky gets a call from a North Korean official canceling that trip. Why? Because, Szmolinsky believes, Kim couldn't resist... and ate the giant rabbits to celebrate his birthday.
3. State textbooks claim Jong-il does not produce urine or feces

And it is chilling how many of the ideas cross link to socialists/democrats in America...
Explains the distended abdomen and proves he really was full of sh*t.
Kim-Jong-il was not ill or mad.
He was a SOCIALIST MONSTER.
I think quite a few liberals would believe this list if you claimed it was about Obama...
Kim Jong Il? No, he’s dead.
I don’t think he was all that ill. I think he was just plain dumb.

The talking iceberg, hell yes.
lol. Kudos for the best late, great leader word-play ever!
This just in... Kim Jung Il is still dead. More details when they become available.
No urine or excrement, eh?
I think we know now how he died.
Wow! All that magical Godhood. Still it couldn’t save him from death. Do you really thing North Koreans bought into this demented doctrine? Shaking my head.
History will not be kind to humanity for allowing that nightmare to play out.
list if you claimed it was about Obama...
Quietly Obama believes it about himself;-)
Exactly, they are all like that.
That is why making fun of moonbats, outside their dissociative sphere, is like shooting fish in a barrel.
Inside, it's a whole other matter. My mother showed me children's reading books with propaganda pictures of a smiling Tito with some kids. "Tito loves children", she parroted, knowing full well Tito came within a whisker of killing her father for choosing the wrong side in the power play with Stalin. She even thought they spared him because he was a widower with four young children. The reality is we had influential family members on the winning side of the struggle. As it was, he went from being a middle-rank party member to a night watchman for the rest of his life.
If they didn’t they were not foolish enough to say so out loud.
My favorite is his “Worlds Most Hideous Hotel”. 105 unfinished, unstable stories. One of it s unique features is its curved elevator shafts.
