It's official. Kim Jong Il has confirmed reports that he is slowly dying of a painful Justin-Beiber related death in a rare conference held in his living room.
The tyrannical leader also named his successor. Whilst many of us thought his son would have been the next successor, Kim Jong Il clearly had other ideas.
"I want a leader who doesn't understand the system. Let's face it, this guy won't make any changes. Everybody's gonna love him, despite the fact he's the son of a capitalist pig!"
The Cookie Monster had this to add in light of this harsh truth.
"Me want cookie. Korean cookie. Nom nom nom nom nom. Me Cookie Monster!"
It is uncertain what kind of leader the Cookie Monster will be for North Korea. Many expect a mass war to break out. Others expect a harsh cookie tax. Only the future knows.
