Several years ago a friend, who had served in the US Army as a Korean language specialist, gave me a couple of North Korean propaganda rags, printed in English. The best comedy writers in the world could not write funnier stuff. Virtually every page had two or more references to the Beloved or Benevolent or whatever adjective you want Kim Il Sung, plus slams on the oppressed South Koreans, lackeys of the Imperialistic Americans. Each magazine had a "review" of a North Korean movie--the one about Tae Jin and his efforts to increase production at the rolling steel mill, despite the efforts of the plant manager who was secretly a lackey of the imperialistic Americans, was absolutely hilarious. I would love to see that move.
