Kim Jong-Un visits a pig farm 
and has the obligatory propaganda photo taken.

Later, three editors for the Pyongyang Times then
 faced the task of finding an appropriate caption.

     1: "How about 'The Glorious Leader among pigs'?"

     2: "Are you mad? That could cost us our heads!"

     3: "How's 'Even the farm animals look up to our Dear Leader'?"

     2: "No, no, no. Could be misinterpreted.
 We need something neutral."

They debated the entire evening.

The caption on the following day's issue simply states, 

"Kim Jong-Un, third from left."

Yesterday I was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for Mia ,
 the wonder dog , at PetSmart 
and was about to check out. 
 A woman behind me asked if I had a dog.
 On impulse on this stupid question, I told her that no,
 I  didn't have a dog, and that I was starting the Purina Diet again.

Although I probably shouldn't,
 because I'd ended up in the hospital last time,
 but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an
intensive care ward with tubes coming out
 of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

 I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet 
and that the way that it  works is to load your
 pants pockets with Purina nuggets
and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry
and that the food is nutritionally complete 
so I was going to try it again. 
(I have to mention here
that practically  everyone in the line was
 by now enthralled with my story.)

Horrified , she asked if I ended up in intensive care
 because the dog  food poisoned me.

I told her no;
 I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter's ass
 and a car hit us both.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack,
 he was  laughing so hard!

Bottom line: 
PetSmart won't let me shop there anymore!!!
