With the timely demise of his father, Kim Jong-un has been suddenly thrust into North Korea’s only working spotlight. Jong-un is the youngest son of the recently croaked Kim Jong-il and annointed successor to the family trailer park throne.
He’s also a four-star general in the DPRK Army, Deputy Chairman of the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party, and a member of the Central Committee. And he isn’t even 30 yet. Kinda makes you feel like a slacker, doesn’t it? (Yes, I’m talking to you, Ryan Reynolds.)
Kim Jong-un probably tortures more political prisoners before 5am than you do all day.
Rumor has it that the official nickname for the presumptive pudgy potentate, lovingly pre-shoved down the throats of his doting minions, will be “The Brilliant Comrade.” While it does have a certain old-world communism-y ring to it, I’d like to offer a few humble suggestions of my own:
- Dear Leader 2: Electric Boogaloo (The 김정은 Edition)!
- The Beer Leader
- Korean Peter Griffin
- Kungdungi Punim
- My Little Dictator
- Generalissimo James Franco
- Penis Potato Head
- Kim Jong-Kardashian
- Everybody Pyongyang Chung Tonight
- Soft Kitty
- Kim Jor-El
- The Pasta King of Hoboken
and… my personal favorite…
- Lady Gogi
