Friending the Dear One: Only 65 People Join North Korea’s New Facebook Page

No wonder the Dear One — North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Il — is in such a bad mood lately with his sinking of a South Korean ship and promising to unleash a nuclear holocaust. His minions created a Facebook page for North Korea but only 65 have friended him. That would just account for embassy staff or CIA monitors.

I can only imagine the blasts from the Dear One: “OMG, the running dogs are practicing war games off the coast and I just got The Bee Movie FOR THE FIFTH TIME from Netflicks!”

Or “DBEYR, I just went out and had a great meal. A new restaurant on The Great One Avenue really knows how to make fantastic dumplings out of that U.N. wheat.”

or “NIMBY, the South Korean and US Navy can go play war games off Martha’s Vineyard.”

Perhaps if more of people friended the Dear One he might be less of a total jerk. Would it be that much to ask to just send a note on what you are wearing or how the date went last night? For world peace?

  1. the first thing i thought was being on his friends list would be a quick way to get on the no fly list.

    just keep saying
    they hate us for our freedoms
    they hate us for our freedoms
    they hate us for our freedoms

  2. Nate K,
    You are right that we have done a turn around from the days of the Soviet Union, but I am still hopeful that we will come to our senses before we get that bad.

  3. “The FBI, NSA and other intellignece organizations are spying on us without warrants now, so why give them a reason to dig even deeper into your business?”

    It’s sad that we, as Americans, now have to think this way. It used to be that we’d pity the poor Soviets and East Germans who had to always watch what they said, what they read, and who they associated with, lest they attract the attention of the ubiquitous surveillance state.

    The Soviet Union and East Germany are gone, but the USA is working hard to replace them.

  4. I agree with Buddha that adding your name to the N. Korea Facebook page is downright scary. I am surprised that they have any people signing up. The FBI, NSA and other intellignece organizations are spying on us without warrants now, so why give them a reason to dig even deeper into your business?

  5. bUDDHA:

    I will let you know what happens. I haven’t heard from them yet [CIA, etc]. I posted that Das Kapital sucked and that laissez faire was the only way. I then posted a link to the Adam Smith and Ayn Rand websites and left the pdf file of the Law by Frederic Bastiat and one of Thomas Jefferson quotes.

    I told the dear leader to read that stuff and I would help him build his economy into a world class one and said that chicks think a rich man is sexy. You can chronicle our conversations on my wall, I will send the link.

    It may take awhile but I think I can convert him. I think the chicks think rich is sexy theme should work. He doesn’t have much else to play to.

  6. Byron,

    Maybe you should friend him and try to convert his thoughts on why being 1 of 5 remaining pure communist economies is a bad idea.

    Or you could just go ahead and mail your computer passwords to the CIA, NSA and DHS. ūüėÄ

    Friending this guy on Facebook is the equivalent of putting a “Bad Cop, No Donut” sticker right next to the giant marijuana leaf and “Rednecks Suck” sticker on your back windshield and then driving through Alabama.

    It’s just begging for trouble.

  7. Poor Kim, maybe he would change if he had some friends. He is just misunderstood and probably had a bad childhood and his father beat him or belittled him. If people would show a little empathy he would stop being such a bully boy.

  8. “Perhaps if more of people friended the Dear One he might be less of a total jerk.”

    I’m thinking his crazy runs much deeper than that.

  9. Don’t do social networks. You are caste immortalize by doing so. These sites will follow you the rest of your lives. I have read where employers check out your name and email and ala a background check of invasion of privacy. Even if currently employed they use these tool (internet) to see what you have to say.

    I suppose the morals clause only applies to school teachers anyway.
