One big, happy North Korean family? Updated: Not Kim’s family, just lucky

The photo below is of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and his family — say cheese!

Notice anything… odd? Outside of Kim and maybe the uniformed guy, everyone else looks like they’re about as cheery as someone facing an IRS audit.

If this is the ruling elite being “happy,” imagine how the average “North Korean on the street” must feel.


UPDATE: Okay, this explains the “God help us” looks. An article at HuffPo suggests this isn’t Kim’s family, just a random one he dropped in on for a photo op. Yeah, when the God-King dictator of the world’s largest prison camp masquerading as a nation, who could destroy you and yours on a whim, shows up unannounced…

You might be a little upset, too.

    If you were the unquestioned ruler-for-life of such a pit of misery, wouldn’t you be happy, too?

    And conversely, if you had such a toad for a ruler-for-life, would you be all smiles?

    I’m all confused…I thought the whole Commie ideal was to overthrow hereditary leadership; like what the Bolsheviks did to the Romanov dynasty. Reckon this ruling class read a book not written by Marx!

    Though there are many North Koreans literally starving to death it is obvious no one in this family pic is missing any meals. It has been a known fact for many years that missing children there are actually victims of what has become known as “survival cannabalism”, much the same as the Uraguayan rugby team stranded in the Andes in the mid-70’s.
