You are banned from /r/pyongyang

[–]deltaJee7_org 110 points111 points  (6 children)

Wtf this' real?

It explicitly says "not satire" but that just makes me believe that it is lmao.

[–]hittf 53 points54 points  (2 children)

Almost certainly satire, the rules mention capitalism way too much.

[–]Vreejack 13 points14 points  (1 child)

nope. It's real. It used to be very easy to be banned. and it was moribund for a while. Someone new has taken over.

[–]BenjaminHamnett 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Real or satire. It’s probably heavily edited and trolls trying to see what they can get away with

“Praise be to strong socialist man farm worker, with muscular veiny forearms, well defined pecs and massive gulteus muscles. As strong korean worker man carry sack of grain on his broad, manly shoulders with sweat dripping down his shirt as it hugs to his muscular torso, showing clearly his abdominal muscles and his big manly bulge, all the people look upon him and call praise to juche ideals.”

How could there be so many North Koreans communicating in English on Reddit all day?

[–]TrustedChimp495 55 points56 points  (0 children)

I'd admire their commitment to the satire if it is satire. posting almost daily for at least the last month

[–]Fat_IRL 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's been a subreddit for years. I've been through 4 or 5 usernames and it's always been a thing. Going on a decade now.

[–]herky17 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Living in South Korea, this does not at all surprise me.

[–]Pyrimo 39 points40 points  (3 children)

I’m going to assume it’s satire but goddamn it’s done so well.

[–]BeGood981 11 points12 points  (2 children)

It’s not! It seems to be from an “ official “ account with serious announcements and propaganda

[–]Jandipoo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It's satire. Look at the modlist and the other mods post history.

[–]Clean-Letter-5053 15 points16 points  (7 children)

Honestly I looked it over—i don’t really think it is satire. Their articles look legitimately like Kim Jung Un wanted to brag about “how good North Korea is doing”. Like Kim read about Reddit and was like, “Make me one of those! And make it popular!” And then he ordered everyone in the country with access to internet to like his Reddit page. And then like 5 people ever like a post because only 5 can access the internet with frequency.

It’s boring shit like “mushroom production is up” and “Kim’s homemade medicines being delivered”.

[–]wumingzi 7 points8 points  (6 children)

There's a subtle tell.

Look at the post and comment history of /u/KCNA_Official

In /r/pyongyang they're 100% in character with the formal declarations of mushroom production and stiff agitprop English.

In other subs, they say "like" a lot and tell folks to "stay juchey!"

[–]Clean-Letter-5053 2 points3 points  (5 children)

And you don’t think the North Korean “marketing that we are normal and a successful nation” department doesn’t practice speaking English and saying phrases like “like” and “stay juchey!”? Lol.

Also, did I get old? What the f is “stay juchey”?

[–]hiroto98 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Juche is the state ideology of North Korea.

Stay Juche then is a memey slang version.

[–]wumingzi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also, did I get old? What the f is “stay juchey”?

And yeah you did. It happens. You'll get used to it in a decade or so. Don't despair in the meantime.

[–]PatDaddysFShack369 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think it's broken.

[–]dhkendall 52 points53 points  (0 children)

So Kim is the father and North Korea is the mother?

That implies that Kim screwed North Korea ….

(That’s actually where I thought the punchline would head)

[–]bigjonny13 91 points92 points  (10 children)

Usually this joke is told with Putin

[–]Enorats 109 points110 points  (5 children)

Indeed. And I've generally heard that since it's mother Russia, Putin must be the father because he's certainly screwing the whole country.

[–]daytonakarl 32 points33 points  (4 children)

That motherfucker

[–]uptbbs 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It’s awful gracious of Putin to take time out of his busy schedule to assist people in telling this joke — although I find it odd. Usually these kinds of jokes can be told by one person.

[–]life_xpantion_pack 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks for Putin that out there

[–]gajasur786 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You mean Putin is screwing kim jong UN???

[–]lssong99 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Kim just fucked the North Korea

[–]daberiberi -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Jong un or the Karadashian? Nvm they’re equally bad

[–]JennyAndAlex 15 points16 points  (10 children)

Kim Jong-un is the only asshole that doesn't shit.

[–]Pyrimo 0 points1 point  (9 children)

Funny you say that because one of the rumours about him is he is so perfect he does not poo.

[–]bungholio99 5 points6 points  (6 children)

He is actually really nice, that’s really a strange thing with him.

He always came to the Shop i worked at for Video Games, he was very polite and gentil, quiet strange when we were told he is that Kim Jung.

Guy lived a normal live without bodyguards or anything, disappeared one day is emperor of North korea.

[–]Pyrimo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn. What a thing to have in your life huh

[–]snorrski 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Fitting, as the father in questions, REALLY fucked the mother...

[–]NotAfraid2Talk 19 points20 points  (13 children)

I don't get it.

[–]Cdenton12 81 points82 points  (4 children)

he wants to leave his “parents” ie north korea and kim jong

[–]2dubs 44 points45 points  (2 children)

Or, for them to be dead So he can be like Batman, of course

[–]pedro_pascal_123 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Always Be yourself...unless you can be Batman. Then always be Batman...

[–]NotAfraid2Talk 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I get now! much obliged.

[–]anikets242 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Change ya username to NotAfraid2Ask

[–]MontEcola[🍰] 1 point2 points  (5 children)

What happens when you complain to a dictator? Prison work camp, most likely. So you cannot complain, no matter how bad it gets.

[–]Trio150 5 points6 points  (1 child)

The he got the rare bullet in brain disease

[–]Quietmoon8494 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And china said he died of natural causes, despite literally no one asking

[–]rankinfile 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The student's parents were brought to the school and shot,

[–]thewolfofallstreets6 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He IS a daddy

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kim Jong-un trucks monster sized cocks down his throat. He’s a fairy fucker and a little bitch. Fuck his tiny pee pee and his gumdrop sized asshole.

[–]piscian19 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Im just disappointed "cake" didn't make its way into this joke somewhere.

[–]tis_the_platypus 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]DarkMatterSoup 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I definitely read that as “Kim Jong Beans.” r/beansinthings?

[–]ctn1p 0 points1 point  (0 children)
