The Death of Kim Jong-Il



I found this footage of North Koreans grieving over the death of Kim Jong-Il over at the Laughing Squid, and i keep getting caught up in how sad it all is. It's like an entire nation of people who've spent their whole lives getting beat and pushed around by their dad, and he dies and they are suddenly lost.

It's insanely creepy.

I mean, the guy was basically a Bond Villain without the skull shaped volcanic island (but when you reign as god-emperor over 24,000,000 people, who needs a secret lair?).

Don't feel bad, love. There's a selection of despots-in-waiting.
