This could end up badly. Fatty DingDings finding out someone in North Korea ate a Moon P.....I mean Choco Pie and it wasn't him? EXTERMINATE THE ENTIRE FAMILY BACK FIVE GENERATIONS!!!

What, no Moon Pies?
 
2014-01-29 11:01:00 AM
If all you had to eat was grass and sticks, I imagine a Coco-cola would be a pretty healthy alternative.

Lots of sugar, caffeine and caramel coloring.

They're eating bark soup and toiling in the fields eighteen hours a day. It would have to be a massive operation to even get those people up to healthy, much less husky. Except for Dear Leader, who probably ate all the huskies already.

The manufacturer should start infusing them with whatever the fark they put in those meal-replacement bars. It might be a way to get real nutrition into NK, and that would be a huge leap forward.

Anything that you actually give them in the open goes directly to the Army. "Army first" is their policy.  They tell people that the "gift from the people of the USA" on the bags grain means that we are paying them "tribute" for our crimes.

What a shiatty art exhibit that sounds like.  As for the Choco Pies themselves, they're pretty tasty - I don't blame the North Koreans for idolizing them.  I'm sure after a lifetime of eating thin soups made out of vegetable scraps and dog bones anything with sugar in it would be beyond ecstasy.

Crazy orwellian shiat they have goin on up there.  I know you don't want to taunt the dynamite-monkey, but it would be nice to air-drop some magazines and a mix of nutritious and fun foods to those unfortunate folks from time to time.

Anyone who reads the magazines or eats the food would be sent to a work camp along with their entire family.  I doubt if anyone would even touch the packages in part out of fear of the regime and in part out of fear of America, which is pounded into them from the moment they learn how to understand words.

I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe... Coca-cola ships on fire off the shoulder of Seoul. I watched moon-pies glitter in the dark near Pyongyang. All those... moments... will be lost in time, like  tears... in the rain.

No, just create a line of infused stuff and subtly flood their black market. Working through open channels isn't getting anywhere.

Everyone there is watched nearly all the time.  You can bet if drops are made that soldiers are out on the streets in force, even in tiny villages, to immediately enforce obedience.  I'm sure they can't be everywhere at once, but the entire populace of North Korea is essentially a collective whipped dog.

"mongler" isn't a word...

/pedant


word: a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds or their written representation, that functions as a principal carrier of meaning.

Translation: if you can speak or write it, and is has a meaning (preferably one understood by the listener), it is a word. It may not be commonly used or widely accepted, but it is still a word.

Both. Or neither, I forget. Either way, monglers of all sorts have existed on Fark for a while.
