Fret Not, Internet: Kim Jong Un Has Started Looking at Things
Time ^ | January 4, 2012 | Samantha Grossman

Posted on 01/07/2012 5:51:38 PM PST by Pinkbell

If you found yourself panicked that the highly acclaimed and inexplicably entertaining “Kim Jong Il Looking at Things” blog would become defunct after the Dear Leader’s recent death, fear no more. North Korea has a new leader, but more importantly, North Korea has a new person who likes to look at things.

Although you can continue to enjoy images of the Dear Leader posted posthumously on the original blog, the site dedicated to his successor proves quite promising. Recent entries feature new images which, according to the Daily Mail, were taken during a tour of a military camp and released by a state-run news service.

Perhaps most ironic is the photo of Kim Jong Un looking on disapprovingly as a soldier gestures to a veritable smorgasbord of reasonably edible-looking food. What the image does not convey, of course, is the staggering number of North Koreans affected by the impoverished nation’s ongoing food shortage. Notwithstanding this or any other of the country’s problems, the new Supreme Leader still manages to enjoy looking at things, sometimes rather gleefully. The blog features several images in which he looks highly amused as he looks at various things, including but not limited to a pool of fish, an air force unit, and his father.

Here he's thinking, "I could eat all this in one sitting. By the way, I hope the evil Americans and South Koreans come through with the food aid for the peasants."

There aren’t many countries where a pot luck dinner would merit a military procession and photo op. It actually reinforces what they’re trying to refute.

I think he’s starting to drool. He doesn’t look like he could pass it by without taking a few samples

That’s probably what his typical breakfast looks like.

After all, he IS on a diet.

Pretty much. Putting on full regalia to be photographed with a few trays of bean dip and burritos is what it looks like. Guess they don’t see that sort of thing very often.

Found in my mail box:

I am really concerned about North Korea’s appointment of the “dear leader”, Kim Jung Ill’s youngest son to be the new leader of North Korea— a nuclear power!

After all, Kim Jung Un (pronounced Kim’s young-un?) had NO military experience whatsoever before daddy made him a four-star general in the military. This is a snot-nose twerp who has never accomplished anything in his life that that would even come close to military leadership: he hasn’t even so much as led a cub scout troop, let alone coached a sports team or commanded a military platoon.
So, setting that aside, next they make him the “beloved leader” of the country. Terrific!!!

Oh, crap! I’m sorry. I just remembered that we did the same thing here, We took a community organizer who has never worn a uniform and made him Commander-in-Chief; a guy who has never led anything more than an ACORN demonstration and made him the leader of this country. Never mind.

That is a “disapproving” look? It looks more like a “I’m a moron” look to me.
