Kim Jong Un on horseback...

Postby 661-Pete » 16 Oct 2019, 9:24am

...going up a sacred mountain, according to this story:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-50064893

Now what famous scene does that remind me of? Of course! This one:

Perhaps Mr Kim had better watch out that he doesn't meet the same fate as the esteemed gentleman in the painting...

I don't know which horse and which "fat lump" you were referring to, but your comment could apply to either... :lol:

That's a hefty horse. Verging on a heavy perhaps? Obviously chosen to make the l'il dictator look smaller on the photographs perhaps?

Very Putinesque! Next he'll be bear wrestling and fishing bare chested catching a new world record sized fish with just his hands while looking ripped!

Dictators playbook stuff. Derivative to the extreme.

I heard boris started a new fitness regime in anticipation of proroging parliament again so he can get one of those photo opportunities going on too.

Anyone remember that photograph of him in an orphanage and behind him someone had put some cuddly toys in a suggestive position just behind him and to one side? Some brave individual's defiance?

Personally you don't need props to make him look bad. Like trump he just does it all by himself.

Kim Jong-un terrifies CHILDREN with creepy visit to orphanage in North Korea

KIM JONG-UN has left kids in floods of tears as he made a creepy visit to an orphanage in North Korea.


He's as fat as the bear bed board? How would you like his fat face on a bed head board? :twisted: :twisted: :lol:

Possibly that visit but the photograph widely used had him posed, standing up next to a chest of drawers with two soft toys in a pose resembling dogs initiating a mating.

Thanks Mercalia for that totally relevant modified bojo picture as the joker. Funny but let's be honest, he's more of a funny clown than a scary one.
