On the same theme as the previous, before it was derailed by Ned's inanity:

Kim Jong Un's Disneyification of North Korea Is More Creepy Than Cuddly

The New York Times describes the scene in that photo:

North Korean state-run television on Monday showed footage of costumed versions of Tigger, Minnie Mouse and other Disney characters prancing in front of the leader, Kim Jong-un, and an entourage of clapping generals.

The footage also showed Mr. Kim in a black Mao suit watching as Mickey Mouse conducted a group of young women playing violins in skimpy black dresses. At times, scenes from the animated Disney movies "Dumbo" and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" were projected on a multipanel screen behind the entertainers; an article in the state-run press said unnamed foreign songs were on the bill.


Is it just me, or does that scene now look disturbingly prescient of Miley Cyrus's performance at the VMA? Replace the giant Disney characters with giant teddy-bears, and you'd have it.

I dunno whether Miley is channeling Kim Jong-un or vice versa.

Happened to me today. The full swing out into traffic is just beyond me. I almost want to hit them.

Speaking of North Korea, another thing I don't get is Dennis Rodman.

It would be interesting if Rodman did for North Korea, what ping-pong did for China.

Can we hope that Kim Jong-Un treats Rodman like family? Specifically his Uncle.

Did anyone ever stay at the Don Q Inn ("Unique In All The World!") in Dodgeville?

Here are a few of the "Fantasy Suite Theme Rooms":

Oh, that one's right by the park and ride at Olbrich. The guy says he got the chicken off a restaurant that was being closed, as if that explained everything.

The chicken and the virgin in the grotto are unrelated. He just says he likes both of them. The corn, though, is for the chicken.

N. Korea once again.

I think we all get why. But it just cracks my ass how everyone is so eager, pencil in hand, to record fearless leader's latest musings.

From Catholic Online

"All humanity owes a debt to this baby girl, to find her murderers and bring them to justice, dead or alive. That the nations of the world and its citizens sit complacent is the greatest embarrassment to civilization and should be the source of deep shame to all. Everything less that we do is pales by comparison. We have a moral imperative to act. "
