When North Korea announced the execution of Kim Jong Un’s uncle Jang Song Thaek last week, it did so with some colorful insults: the country’s official press release referred to Song Thaek as a “traitor for all ages” and “despicable human scum,” who was “worse than a dog.”
Now, for those who’d like to see themselves (or their friends) as targets of the DPRK’s ire, BoingBoing has created a North Korea Press Release generator, which crafts a similarly enraged announcement of death for whoever’s name you enter. Here’s an excerpt from “Imperialist Reactionary Andy Cush Condemned.”
All facts go to clearly prove that Cush is a thrice-cursed traitor without an equal in the world, who had desperately worked for years to destabilize and bring down the DPRK. The hateful and despicable nature of these anti-party, anti-state and unpopular crimes will be fully disclosed in the course of the trial. No matter how much water flows under the bridge and no matter how frequently a generation is replaced by new one, the lineage of Paektu will remain unchanged and irreplaceable.
