Kim Jong Il watches ‘Desperate Housewives’

by in Uncategorized


It’s true, Kim Jong Il and I enjoy the same TV shows. I read it in the LA Times today:

North Korea’s leader apparently saw no hypocrisy in exiling people to prison camps for watching foreign media, while he personally amassed a collection of 20,000 foreign film titles. From the time that President Carter visited Pyongyang in 1994 with copies of “Gone With the Wind” and “The Godfather,” foreign dignitaries have been bearing such gifts. The ABC television network, granted a visa to North Korea last year, is said to have brought in, on special request, the complete “Desperate Housewives” series.

Also, Kim apparently drinks more Hennessy than Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, and P. Diddy (uh, Diddy?) COMBINED:

In the early 1990s, trade figures showed that Kim was the world’s largest single consumer of Hennessy cognac, importing more than $650,000 worth of top-of-the-line stock a year for his private collection. He reportedly quit smoking in 1999 and lost weight. He switched from cognac to red wine. Today, he is said to have a wine cellar of nearly 10,000 bottles.

Dude knows how to throw a party (when he isn’t busy starving his citizens and throwing them in gulags).
