If ever there was someone who least looked like a crazed dictator bent on destroying the World it's North Korean leader Kim Jong Il. Platform shoes, over sized spectacles and being unable to reach a light switch is hardly the things that go into making an evil genius but Mr Jong Il has been on our list of big nasties for quite some time although according to what newspaper you read, he is reportedly dead (South Korea), dying (Western media) or ..........(North Korea).
The rotund figure was certainly looking less rounded last time he put in an appearance in public and he today missed the military parade celebrating the 60th anniversary of his country's founding which only makes the rumours fly even faster.
He is known to suffer from heart problems and diabetes but maybe someone just put his shoes on a high shelf which caused him to miss it.
Whatever happened to him, the World will never again see such a comical figure with the capability to destroy us all although i do get a good giggle out of the 'tennis balls in the armpits' Bush walk and the Japanese Prime Minister's hair. Gordon Brown does that weird sucking noise as he speaks and Berlusconi has that hairline that goes up and down like the tide but none reach Kim Jong Il's potential to look so damned ridiculous.
To honour the man, here is his finest moment when he made his acting debut in Team America.
Kim Jong Il: Now you see, the changing of the worrd is inevitabre!
Lisa: I'm sorry, it's what?
Kim Jong Il: Inevit, inevitabre.
Lisa: One more time.
Kim Jong Il: Inevitabre! Things are inevitabrey going to change! Goddamnit, open your f***ing ears!
Mr Kim, lovingly remembered. For looking a bit of a prat.
