Considering the emphasis on free expression at reddit, it makes sense that an entire subreddit exists specifically to mock North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un and the PRNK’s cult of personality and submission.
The Korean Central News Agency recently released a new photo of Kim that was remarkable for a number of reasons.
He is depicted wearing a dull business-style suit in lieu of his usual garish military garb. He looks like a beefy goofball making no effort to appear dignified. It’s up for debate what they were going for here, but the irony of such a Type A government feeding the worldwide media such an unflattering, obviously un-retouched image of its figurehead was not lost.
The highly active subreddit r/PhotoshopBattles sprang into action. Enjoy some of its work below. (H/t to HuffPo.)
There are many more where these came from, including several more Kim Jong Trumps – make of that what you will.
