You couldn't make this stuff up. Apparently after a hair salon used a picture of Kim Jong-un in their 'Bad hair day?" advert they were visited by people from the North Korean embassy. The managers told them to leave. Here.

This is funny. North Korea sent embassy officials to do what? NOTHING as they are pointless. (should kick those losers out of the UK)

Most useless country in the world. No need for NK

So he sends officials to address this but not more important world issues. This guy needs to get over himself and end his stupid failing regime.

I think that the article says that the Embassy is about 10 minutes walk away. So I think that it might have been more a case of officials from it seeing the picture, being zealous and then, um, getting thrown out on their ears.

I think Kim Jong and Dennis Rodman are drag queen buddies and Rodman is an idiot for having anything to do with the queen of north korea.

I'd love to know what they reported to their superiors at the embassy. "Comrade! We have heroically confronted a Western Imperialist running dog hairdresser when he dared to insult our glorious wondrous leader Comrade Kim Jong-un!"

"Well done comrade! And what did he say?"

"Um, they gave us a voucher for a short back and sides. Good 'til next Tuesday."

I'm usually intrigued by any news regarding North Korea, but even this one has me scratching my head because it's not like them to cause any fuss in other countries, perhaps outside of South Korea or China, that I'm aware of in the news. Something in my gut tells me this was either a publicity stunt on behalf of the salon, or a prank perpetrated upon the salon.

If the incident was genuine then I would suppose the families of those embassy workers will be severely punished back in NK for their actions, because it doesn't seem like something that would have been sanctioned by officials.

Hmmm intresting thought, before this story I have seen tbe picture on the internet. It has sort of gone viral. Maybe the hair dresser thought they would take it a step further and get even more publicity but who knows.

Aha, and we have some confirmation - of a sort - here.

What? Do the North Koreans mean to say that they have not roared at Donald Trump's perplexing choice of haircut or even Dennis Rodman's?

In North Korea it carries a death-penalty to "desecrate" pictures of the leader. Its their religion-substitute (as they are atheists) and they take it very, very seriously.
