To lighten the mood further, I think we should start a "most ridiculous statements made by NK" thread?
'He could drive at the age of 3'
Kim Jong-un was a child prodigy who could drive at just three-years-old, according to North Korea's school curriculum. At 9, the future leader was
winning yachting races, pupils are told.
'He's had plastic surgery'
"The regime wants its people to see Kim Jong-un as Great Leader Kim Il-sung reincarnated. They fattened him up and gave him a thorough training —
and plastic surgery, too, some even say — to make him look just like his grandfather," Kim Kwang-in told the New York Times.
'He's the Sexiest Man Alive'
In 2012, China's Communist Party online newspaper fell for a report on the satirical website The Onion naming the North Korean dictator as the
'Sexiest Man Alive'.
'He's addicted to cheese'
In 2014, Kim Jong-un's rumoured bout of ill health was widely attributed to an avid fondness of Emmental. He reportedly grew to love it while studying
in Switzerland and 'gorged on the cheese so much that he has ballooned in size and is now walking with a limp', according to tabloid reports.
'He conquered North Korea's highest mountain'
In April 2015, Kim Jong-un climbed North Korea's highest mountain Mount Paektu, wearing a suit and dress shoes, according to state media in Pyongyang.
At 9000ft, Paektu is nearly twenty times the height of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
