Kim Jong-il no longer ill . . .
This photo that was posted by blogger R. Elgin at the Marmot's Hole is already several days old, so the news is no longer exactly new, but I've wanted to note that North Korea's Beloved Leader Kim Jong-il is feeling much better now and is once again able to rise not merely from his bed but even from the ground itself.
His powers extend even to his staff, who along with him appear to be only barely touching the surface of the earth.
Moreover, Kim Jong-il is feeling so well that he's once more involving himself in the details of North Koreans' personal lives -- such as is shown in the photo above, which reveals him selflessly assisting one of the staff members by picking the man's nose.
This obviously genuine photo should dispel any rumors that Kim Jong-il remains ill and bedridden.
