“EXCELLENT! Finally, my plan to bring joy to the children of the world using gumdrop guided missiles can come to fruition!”
This photo makes us happier than a despot in a candy store. Pictured above is North Korea’s fearless leader Kim Jong-Il inspecting a candy factory, and reminding us that even an evil dictator can have a sweet tooth. According to Kim Jong Il’s former head chef, he has a discriminating pallet and an affinity for Japanese rice cakes. Shady authoritarian rulers and sweet, delicious candy might seem a bit incongruous, but hey, Adolf Hitler was a serious chocoholic and adored chocolate cake. We’re glad that the quality of North Korean candy is enough of a concern for Kim that he took time out of his busy schedule to inspect it and pose for a few pictures while looking fly in his sporting white lab coat.
