It's never too early when it comes to joking about dead dictators
That crazy evil elf, Kim Jong-il, has strapped on his platform boots and his toupee for the last time and, as a reward for finally dying, is trending on Twitter.
@daxshepard1 I'm upset about Kim Jong. I was beating him by 60 points in Words With Friends. I guess now will never know who would have won.
@AlbertBrooks Kim Jong very very very il
@pattonoswalt "I can't listen to that song today" -- sobbing North Korean, as Run DMC's "You Be Illin'" spins.
@neilgrayston Waiting for North Korea to announce Zombie Kim Jong-Il as Supreme Leader. Waiting. So. Hard.
@BorowitzReport Andy Borowitz Per his instructions, Kim Jong-Il will be strapped to a nuclear missile and buried in South Korea.
and this: @jstrevino I'd like to think God let Havel and Hitchens pick the third.
and this: @benschwartzy Kim Jong-Il is dead. The size 4 supervillain jumpsuit industry will halt production at noon today for a moment of silence.
And, for that nostalgic look at Kim Jong-il looking at things, check the brilliant tumblr aptly named Kim Jong-il Looking at things. This is one of my favourites:
Also trending, the genius piece of film-making that is Team America. (And speaking of film, Mental Floss has a great and creepy little piece on that time Kim Jong il kidnapped a South-Korean movie director and forced him to make propaganda movies).
And here is footage of North Koreans behaving as if Michael Jackson or Princess Diana had died all over again. Brainwashing is the best kind of washing ever. (says @MiaFarrow N Korea: Ppl sobbing,wailing & thrashing about - as an actor I can say, they would never get hired).
