Jebus, that video is depressing. If you are the leader of a country and kids are so happy to get 2 pounds of candy that they are all in tears, you are probably doing something wrong.

Which will probably result in a short but noticeable uptick in worker productivity, as suddenly many starving people have some calories to work off of for a couple of days.

That's presuming that any candy was actually sent anywhere.

I'm wondering what passes for candy in North Korea.
I assume it is grey and tastes like turnip.

the children in the video seem to have the exact same reaction to getting candy as they did when Kim Jong Il died.

Best Korea Propaganda for Tots Book

The Little Consumerist

There once was a little boy in Best Korea. He wanted to be a good citizen and work for the glory of the state. But one day, he fell victim to the Consumerism Rays that were broadcast from western satellites. The little boy did not report this to his teacher, block captain or his designated Anti-Consumerism Representative. He thought he could fight the desire to consume by himself. "I am a strong North Korean boy. Bred to be the very best in the world. I can cure myself" he declared.

But the rays were very persistent and he began eating more than his basic needs required. This put a strain on the daily food deliveries and his fellow compatriots suffered for his desires. Worse, he craved the sweet candies that the west uses to subjugate their children and bend them to the will of their oppressors. His desires for these destructive treats led him to cast away the training of Socialism and dabble in the black arts.

In a small room, he assembled the devices of his witchery. Using the wrappers of his previous consumptions, he assembled an altar and prayed to it turning his back on the wisdom of the Dear Leader and his country. "I will do anything for candy" he pledged.

Suddenly, the altar glowed and a being appeared. "I will give you all the candy you desire. You need but to turn your back on Socialism, the Dear Leader and your Beloved Country. Also, turn your back on me and drop your trousers" the evil being said.

But his candy lust was great and the little boy did what he was instructed. He turned his back on on the teachings of Socialism, the wisdom of the Dear Leader and the many promises of his beloved country. He also turned his back on the evil creature and dropped his trousers.

And that creature was none other than the evil spirit of departed American entertainer Micheal Jackson. And the evil spirit did things to the little boy and then laughed and told him "I don't have any candy! I am but an evil spirit and now my essence is in you. You are evil too!" And the evil spirit laughed and disappeared. The little boy was left holding his trouser and without any candy.

Sad and full of the evil spirit, the little boy ran with a strange waddle from the altar he had created. "I should never have turned my back on Socialism!" he cried. "I should never have turned my back on the teachings of the Dear Leader and I should never have turned my back on the many promises of my beloved country!"

He then stepped on a pesky landmine left behind by a brutal U S Marine 50 years ago and got exploded.

The End.

I know what you mean, and I have no idea. We used to pull those out of our bags, give them to my mom to give out and go out for more candy. I'm sure there were probably only 5 bags made ever, and they keep getting recycled in the same way.

Wolfmanjames: Does that include the ones in their city sized gulags imprisoned there because of their grandparents' 'crimes?'

Read 'The Aquariums of Pyongyang.' You will be less inclined to laugh at the 'Best Korea' meme, OTOH, you will have a better understanding of the psychotic nature of the Kim Dynasty.


Dude, the 'Best Korea' meme came about precisely because of the psychotic nature of the Kim Dynasty.

McManus_brothers: StrikitRich: Probably just Kim Jong-Uns leftover Halloween candy. Hope North Korean kids like candy corn and Bit-O-Honey

It's probably those nasty candies wrapped in the black and orange waxed paper. Do they even have a name?


Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kisses. You can buy them on Amazon.

You can buy them. I can't, because... I have a human soul.

Well, a nice bit of candy will do wonders to wash the taste of twigs and grass from their mouth. And, the added calories will help them forage more twigs and grass for their next meal.
