So all North Koreans have to sport the hairstyle of Kim Jong-Un,

How can they get away with things like this?

???  What does that question have to do with the thread or the article that was linked?

jonnybaxy asked how they get away with imposing laws like these. I figured he was implying that something should be done about this, to which I posed my question.

I don't see how that is unrelated.

I'm predicting that within a week it'll be part of a cracked story about articles that are 100% bullshit that the media creams over.

I think jonnybaxy was implying why do the North Korean people allow themselves to be subjected to this treatment.

I guess it will make it easier for Un to find body doubles.

You have an entire generation who have grown up only knowing the bat-shit insane narrative that is taught within the country. Its easy to accept insanity if its all you've ever known.

They're a little late on my one week prediction, but they came through nevertheless.

Wow! That is amazing and troubling.

I heard this story through the BBC and (because I still haven't learned!) trusted it to be true. It seems journalistic integrity is one of the greatest oxymoron's of the 21st century.

What obviously irks me most is the really serious issues that get reported that may have hideous factual inaccuracies. Why does the press get away with this crap?

London (AFP) - British police said Tuesday they had intervened after North Korean embassy officials reportedly told a London hairdresser to take down a discount haircuts advert featuring leader Kim Jong-Un.

Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state's mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London.

They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper.

The poster featured a large picture of Kim's distinctive short-back-and-sides hairdo with the slogan: "Bad hair day? 15 percent off all gent cuts through the month of April."

"I told them this is England and not North Korea and told them to get their lawyers," the newspaper quoted Nabbach as saying.

"The two guys were wearing suits and they were very serious. It was very threatening."

Nabbach, who is also a fashion photographer, said he had since removed the offending picture.

His son Karim said they had put up the poster in response to a recent unconfirmed story that North Korean men are now only allowed to wear the same haircut as their young leader, who took power after the death of his father Kim Jong-il in December 2011.

"We didn't realise but the North Korean embassy is a 10-minute walk from the salon. The next day we had North Korean officials pop into the salon asking to speak to the manager," he said.

"He (Mo Nabbach) went to Ealing police station afterwards to file a report just in case anything happened to the salon overnight. Apparently they (the apparent North Korean officials) went to the police as well."

"We haven't had any trouble since then, if anything the poster has become a tourist attraction. It was just something that had been in the news, and the North Korean officials didn't even have the haircut.

"We always put up little offers in the window, it's harmless. We were just making light of a bad situation in North Korea."

Police confirmed that they had stepped in to resolve the issue.



"Officers spoke to both parties involved and no offence was disclosed," a Metropolitan Police spokesman told AFP.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

It's amazing that North Korea thinks that the rest of the world subscribes to their ridiculous beliefs.

Is there something topical about this post, or just a random musing?

XJ's post is pretty much spot on. Just watched an episode of Vice on HBO about the fact that North Koreans who basically escape their nations tyranny have an extremely hard time assimilating into even South Korea. A number of Christian churches are overwhelmed by refugees from N Korea. Not because they seek Christian worship, but they need and seek nearly zealot idolatry of something to take the place of their former dictator.
