North Korea provides internet comic fuel


Despite the seriousness with which the world takes North Korea’s missile and nuclear tests, the isolated country remains a rich source of humour for cartoonists, satirists and comedians around the world.


The diminutive, bouffant-haired leader, Kim Jong-il, has already been the star of a satirical full length cartoon, plaintively singing “I’m so ronery” in Team America, while plotting to blow up the world.


These days, it seems, every time North Korea rattles its sabres, the noise can be heard via the Internet.


Kim and North Korea are most frequently a subject of discussion on the various late night TV chat shows so popular in the United States.
