On an occasion or two, I’ve mentioned that I’ve weeded — scythed, actually — posts from this blog since 2009. The other week, however, I stumbled onto the fact that my WordPress ‘Media Library’ remains completely intact. I discovered this noticing in my ‘stats’ that people’s internet searches will occasionally ferret out a image from my trove.
In late 2011, when the late Kim Jong-il of North Korea, became ‘late’, photos and video online depicted the most outrageous displays of public grief, simultaneous theatrical weeping and sobbing by throngs of North Korean nationals.
At about the same time, someone sent me a video entitled ‘I Hate My Job’. Don’t remember why, though I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a statement about the possibility that Kim Jong-il hated his job. I cobbled together this ‘chimera’ below, when I noticed that the relative leg/body positions in two very separate images were just crying out to be joined. (And the shoes and hatband match. Kismet!)
We recently learned that Donald Trump thinks that Kim Jong-il and his son Kim Jong-un are the same person, and thought he’d sent a U. S. Navy aircraft carrier to threaten him, but actually hadn’t.
With things this très screwed up, reposting this picture can’t do that much harm.
