An Axis-of Evil Pongi update:
North Korean team to be sent to work in coal mines. Maybe.
As the WSJ writes, “Jong Tae-Se [North Korea's] Japan-based star striker … had plenty of cause to sob.”
North Korean coach Kim Jong-hun has said that his patriotic attitude has already been “noted by our leader Kim Jong-il”. Coach Kim also said that he gets “regular tactical advice during matches” from Jong-il himself, “using mobile phones that are not visible to the naked eye,” which the ‘Dear Leader’ “developed himself”.
Lil’ Kim (left) claps as North Korean scores a BIG propganda win by losing to Portugal 7-0 and leaving the Koreans, “on the wrong end of the heftiest thumping of the tournament in South Africa (WSJ – 2010/06/22).”
According to the Asia News’ story, Two North Korean players try to flee, perhaps punished, “North Korean coach Kim Jong-hun has said..he gets ‘regular tactical advice during matches’ from Jong-il himself, ‘using mobile phones that are not visible to the naked eye,’ which the Dear Leader ‘developed himself’.”
It is fuckqueing bizarre that Jong is a third generation South Korean who was born in Nagoya, Japan somehow is eligible to play for the North Korean team despite being a South Korean citizen and resident of Japan (Wiki).
