Why not take the tour of fabulous Pyongyang and see for yourself! What wonders await you there, from their giant hotels to their aging fleet of old soviet Migs, it truly is a land of contrast.


well sure, that's how the capitalist imperialists paint pyongyang to us outsiders, but i have no way of knowing that is true. if it were really that bad, why haven't more people left north korea?  i'll tell you why: to paraphrase zionist jerry seinfeld, who leaves a country packed with unicorns to come to a non-unicorn country?

Arkanaut: A banner reading "Accomplish task suggested by Workers Party Central Committee and Central Army Committee" appears at a rally commemorating the 65th anniversary of North Korean Workers Party in Pyongyang on Feb. 13, 2010.

So poetic. Rhyming "Committee" with "Committee"? Genius! And such beautiful imagery too...


I found the choice of the word "suggested" to be highly creative and artistic, myself.

simplicimus: Rats? I thought it was mice. And fjords, not ditches.


No, no, the fjords are in the Glorious People's Democratic Paradise. And we, the unlucky Non-Enlightened Imperialists, are the parrots who can only pine for them, for we are nailed to our perches and cannot nuzzle up to the Bars of Capitalism which imprison us, nor bend them open with our beaks of Juche. This is our doom, and our fate.

Not even four million volts could save us.

You're right. America is totally like North Korea, but with more evil Jews. Your school buddies are right.
