Today’s must-reads from around the Internet.
Minor nuclear weapons power dictator and bouffant hairstyle icon Kim Jong Il has died.
So ronrey, indeed.
If it seems like the 2011 holiday season is endless this time around, that’s because 2011 has blessed/cursed us with five weekends in December, the third of which saw the Iraq War officially come to a close, Christian Bale roughed up by Chinese thugs and, in our opinion, the best Saturday Night Live in over a decade.
This is the latest installment of The World Cup According to Kempt™, our series on the stuff that really matters at this summer’s tournament in South Africa.
The past month has seen a lot of wild, crazy and forearm-tastic moments, but now that the magic’s almost over, we thought we’d choose a favorite. And, before you start guessing, it doesn’t end in a goal, a penalty or an offside call.
No, our favorite moment would have to be North Korea’s Jong Tae-se crying before the North Korea-Brazil game, during his country’s national anthem. Did we say crying? We meant bawling his eyes out. It was a sight to behold. Especially from a guy whose nation is so conservative, oppressive and, frankly, strange, it had reportedly shipped in Chinese actors to pretend to be fans. If you haven’t seen it yet, bask in its universally humanness here.
