North Korea Celebrates As Kim Jong-Un Becomes First Man To Walk On Moon
PYONGYANG—Jubilation sounded far and wide in the North Korean capital today as upwards of 100,000 cheering citizens proudly thronged Kim Il-sung Square to celebrate the historic news that Dear Leader Kim Jong-un had become the first man to walk on the moon, ecstatic North Korean sources reported.
North Korean officials confirmed to the cheering multitudes that not only had the country soundly trumped and “obliterated the memory” of South Korea’s recent successful launch of a civilian rocket, but that the unprecedented moon-walking achievement was performed by none other than the supreme leader Kim Jong-un himself in yet another display of his substantial cleverness and strength.
“Heroic comrades, we give our imperialist aggressors yet another reason to feel their inferiority as our glorious leader extends our empire to the moon and the stars!” announced Minister of Aerospace Sciences Kai Gyoh Kyoung as an image of the great leader spearing a Democratic People’s Republic of Korea flag into a lunar crater was projected onto five 300-foot screens alongside a sequin-outfitted orchestra of thousands. “Our fearless leader’s achievement has no precedent and will ensure North Korea’s continued dominance. His bravery is godlike!”

3. The Chinese were conned by the Onion, too....and it was another Kim Jong Un joke!
He was the SEXIEST MAN ALIVE!
The merciless comedy website The Onion has declared North Korean leader Kim Jong Un the "sexiest man alive for 2012." And it appears China's People's Daily Online has taken the story seriously.
"I love this one," Onion editor Will Tracy told CNN. "It has a certain delightfulness to it."
The Chinese story reprinted satirical comments describing Kim's "air of power that masks an unmistakable cute, cuddly side," his "impeccable fashion sense, chic short hairstyle, and," the story says, "that famous smile."

7. I read the South Korea doesn't want re-unification. If NK were to implode and SK had to absorb it,
it would cost them something like 8 to 10x what it cost West Germany to absorb East Germany. I don't think China wants that either. So they continue to send aid and support the Kim Jongs.
