Kim Jong un and Spoof Editor Mark Lowton have "re-appeared" at the same time, fuelling rumours of a behind the scenes agreement having been thrashed out regarding story approvals about the North Korean Dictator (not a reference to Mark who isn't North Korean). North Koreans have been intensely worried that Kim Jong un had had himself shot for treasonable thoughts or some grave seditious actions he may have thought he might one day do.
The high number of "everything is all right really" broadcasts by state television has caused near hysteria among his many adoring followers in a similar behaviour pattern to that when Mark Lowton allegedly couldn't be found. Only by pronouncing them both dead could they be tricked into appearing and saying "Oh no we're not!"
Kim Jong-un now has a highlighted "Approval Centre" button on his throne/desk and Mark has a "no more stories about Kim Jong-un button" on the arm of his throne/desk.
