Anything to make the "Dear Leader" a little less dear to his inner circle will help.

The US has got it all wrong, instead of putting Pyongyang Elvis on a diet, they should offer to fatten him up (expodentially). As with that other jump-suited Elvis who used to live in Nashville, the US should help introduce the Dear Leader to an enhanced calorie diet comprised of fried everything. This would solve the Kim problem once and for all.

Then again, if Kim really is a god and continues to live on, the US might consider some cruel and unusual punishment. What about sending Britney Spears to Pyongyang and bombarding the country with 24H a day reruns of Bay Watch. Let's put these people on their couches, lusting after Pamela Andersen? You would have them begging for mercy soon enough.

"One counted the olives on his pies and measured the distance between them." - I would to if I knew that if I got it wrong it would be Siberia for me!

Does anyone know whether that Japanese chef's book has been translated into English?

Talking about cookbooks, the Dear Leader wrote a best-selling cookbook a number of years ago, apparently owning it is required by all North Korean households. I think the English title is something like "100 Creative Ways to Eat Grass."

@TimorBorder: Elvis Presley didn't live in Nashville. Graceland is in Memphis.

Maybe we should be sending the threat of trade prohibitions to China. They're the key to all of this and aren't doing near enough to help stabilize the region.

Yeap, tell the Chinese to shut down their pachinko parlors. Damn, some people can't live without gambling their money away.

timorborder - You don't know about the food rationing that goes on in DPRK?

I am amazed that Kim Jong iL has not complained to the UN about this. Missing out on the Alaskian King Crab season is really not fair. As a supreme ruler you must always think of yourself first and your loyal subjects last.

I'd love to fill up a special bottle of Cognac for "dear leader"

Yeah, Nucking has it right. Give him all the cognac he wants but make sure it has strychnine in it.

Why can't we just MOAB him already? forget all these trade sanctions...

Just stop sending him and his army free food. Or actually track the food so it goes to hungry people instead of the party. They won't last a single winter without it.

This guy's ten times the danger of Sadam, has killed tens times the amount of his own people, but we've had no regime change because there's nothing for the allies to plunder. In fact the country needs building from scratch and no one wants to commit to that with no natural resources to credit such work against. Yes, the guy's an idiot, but the US and other's reaction tells it as it is, it's a non-commercially viable regime change. Poor people, RIP..

Spot on, if North Korea had OIL the USA would have bombed the crap out of it a long time ago and used WMD as a reason to go to war. It is the ONLY time the US gets involved in anything is when the US can make money at the same time kicking it allies in the teeth. EXAMPLE : Iraq war, The US goes to war with Iraq over OIL Say it is because of WMD and once the fighting has finished gets the new Iraqi Government to cancel all Wheat Contracts with Australia and sign new contracts with the USA only. US goes to war asks Australia for help and then kicks OZ in the teeth by stealing our wheat contracts with Iraq with over $100 Million a year.

Oh yeah how much help did Aus send. Anyways invading a country for their resources is wrong, but the world has been this way for centuries. Besides it's not like America is stealing their oil. Otherwise it'd be Iraq, 51st state.

I hear he is a ladies' man also. One particular instance involved Japan's "Princess Tenko"...
