Pyongyang’s latest statue and other DPRK humour

One view of recent events:

Pyongyang’s latest statue

Plus, for “On-the-spot whimsy and wisdom from a Benevolent Despot” – an irreverent blogger claiming to be from within the DPRK – visit the Beloved Leader.

And some unintended humour from the Voice of Korea.

The original caption to this photo was

HEY, AMERICANS, YOU SHOULD LEARN A LOT FROM OUR NORWEGIAN FRIENDS WHO ARE HAVING REALLY GOOD TIME WITH NORTH KOREAN YOUNG SCHOOL BOYS.

until the unfortunate wording was passed round the net. The caption as of 21 November had been toned down to

AMERICANS NEED TO LEARN A LOT FROM OUR NORWEGIAN FRIENDS.
THEY ARE HUMANITARIAN FRIENDS OF DPRK BEYOND POLITICAL BARRIERS.

As mentioned in last Thursday’s post, the Voice of Korea has now got a native Brit on hand to help catch some of these linguistic infelicities.

Thanks as ever to Tom Coyner for all these links.
