How sad. Some Weekly World News reader in Georgia can’t tell Asians apart and thinks some Asian guy in sunglasses must be Kim Jong-il. And the equally clueless WWN goes along with it.
Every Pyongyang watcher worth his/her salt knows that if KJI is going to get his groove on, it will be in Guangzhou, home of Cantopop.

It’s uh, clearly a Photoshop job. The WWN is not a real newspaper.

It might be Photoshop… but it might also be what goes on behind closed doors in Pyongyang

There really is a very close resemblance though, don’t you think? Wow. It’s not him though–no star trek uniform.

just to clarify for non-American readers, the Weekly World News is the English language equivalent of Pravda: a silly rumor-based tabloid that no one takes seriously.
