We should ask John Hill about this. After all he never did tell uu why he was spending so much time in the Mongolian Bar and in the bowling lanes.

Am I correct in assuming that that's most likely a lithium-soap based lubricating grease going into those drums?
Hair pomade for Glorious Leader.

Fashion change is coming to NK!

Change afoot in North Korean Capital.

One exception: trousers. Pyongyang still prefers the stove-pipe style, wide from the waist to the ankle. Skinny is out.
Skinny is out. Yep, you get gout if you're skinny.

The original Usher's brewery equipment from Trowbridge was shipped to Pyongyang, while the NKs were taught how to use it to make beer. There was some concern that the equipment could be used for making nasty biological things, but they are making beer with it.

Maybe that's why jung fat wun has gout!

Sallyann,

When the Watney empire bought Ushers, it did go downhill to the point that it could well have been.

A friend told me that 'Watney' was an acronym for 'Weaker And Tastes Nastier Every Year'......

Kim Jong Un visits lubricant factory, asks workers gain competitiveness

Asks?? Is this the new huggy-fluffy, kind and considerate Little Fat Wun we are seeing?
Instructions would normally be more like, "Orders lubricant factory to produce higher quality product under threat of workers being sent to re-education camp".

I didn't see any "Great Leader" or "Illustrious Leader" song gatherings either? However, I did see a pic of the regulation officer standing behind the Little Fat Wun with notebook and pen at hand.
No doubt to record the names of those not seen politely clapping, so they can be sent for further "re-education".

UKIP held their conference at Doncaster, if this helps at all ?

That, and one lady interviewed briefly did in fact refer to the Divine Saviour as....the Leader.

Nothing like an indoctrination process that works then....

He doesn't have enough pips on his shoulders to qualify as a notebook and pen holder.

I don't think you people realize there are only 6 notebooks and 5 pencils in the entire country. Look closely when you see pictures of Yung-Fat-Wun with his Generals.

Interestingly, the Korean word for "sacrificial victim" is Soon-gon-bin, which transliterates as "notebook - no - pencil"

That's so yesterday.

There are now only 6 notebooks and 4 pencils, after a visitor to the Mongolian Bar took a pencil with him as a souvenir of his visit to the Worker's Paradise.

We now have solid evidence, that the entire stock of personal devices in NK is down to 4 notebooks, 4 pens - and one mobile phone.
