“Fire him right in the peninsula!” (or: Kim Jong-Un is a horrible boss)


According to the BBC, North Korea’s Defence Minister Hyon Yong-chol has been executed for showing disloyalty to leader Kim Jong-un. It’s reported that Mr. Hyon’s specific acts of disloyalty were:

  • Falling asleep during an event attended by Kim Jong-un
  • Not carrying out instructions.

Let that be a lesson to you millennials out there slacking off!

However, the most “North Korea” thing about the whole incident is the report that the execution was carried out by anti-aircraft fire.

Seriously, Kim, you’re already short resources as it is — a traditional firing squad would’ve saved time and money, and you could’ve billed Hyon’s family for the bullet after, Mao-style.
