Bunny boiler: Kim Jong-il ate my giant rabbits
April 6, 2007
BERLIN: A German farmer who sold 12 giant rabbits to North Korea with the aim of setting up a breeding program to alleviate famine has said he was shocked to hear they were eaten at Kim Jong-il’s birthday banquet.
Karl Szmolinsky sent his oversized bunnies to Pyongyang to boost meat production. Der Spiegel reported that the 68-year-old breeder had been due to travel to North Korea to help set up the farm, but had received a telephone call last week from an official cancelling the trip.
Mr Szmolinsky told Der Spiegel that although he had no evidence, he believed his rabbits, which each weighed more than 10 kilograms, had been eaten at a banquet for the North Korean leader on February 16. “North Korea won’t be getting any more rabbits from me, they don’t even need to bother asking,” he told the magazine.
Among the rabbits sent to North Korea late last year was Robert, a monster who won a prize as Germany’s largest rabbit.
Pyongyang’s embassy in Berlin has denied the rabbits are dead.
We need to do more in saving giant German rabbits from Kim Jongil’s appetite. It looks like all that news of developing a super-rabbit breeding farm in the name of Communist ideology was also a big lie since it was used as a substitute to luxury foods that Kim Jongil used to be able to easily acquire prior to UN sanctions such as truffles, gourmet pizzas, Hennessey, and even giant lobster. I guess giant bunnies taste just as good while not thinking about the average Korean who is barely staying alive from boiled tree bark, grass, boiled water, dead rats, and even humans in rare cases.
But that’s ok because Both China and South Korea are doing all they can to keep the DPRK on life support so they won’t have to deal with it. Imagine the level of refugees that would flood into the ROK and Northeast China if Kim Jongil’s entire power structure collapses. The DMZ would be easily de-mined from all the random refugees who are willing to risk it all to make it to the wealthier ROK while those traveling to China will be shot down by PLA border guards in the hopes of also making it. With another 50 years of separation, North Korea will become a completely different society with their intensifying propaganda machine and from their general ignorance of the outside world. Until that time comes, the average North Korean can believe that they are relatively better off than their ROK counterparts who they think are regularly enslaved by Americans, the evil Japanese devils who try to steal their dignity again, and the warmongering American Imperialists…
