These posters are fun, in some sort of macabre way. Being an optimist at heart, I prefer to assume that the huge handed man above is merely giving CPR to the American, using the missile as a buffer so he doesn’t break the American’s ribs (with his huge hands).

Apparently, the Juche ideology of North Korea is so superior, their citizens have three (huge) hands.

Lest I be quoted tomorrow in the North Korean Worker’s Paradise Daily Shopper Sun Times, I am being sarcastic. He is obviously not giving the American CPR, but I stand behind my 3 hands comment.

What do you think?
