Kim Jong Il looking at things

The Internet might be at its sublime best when it steps back from the thing it teases and lets the object flounder on its own. So it is with the new Kim Jong-il Looking at Things Tumblr blog, dedicated to North Korea's leader looking at things. Much like the Pictures of Muslims Wearing Things, it's the technological equivalent of a straight-faced "Oh, really?" By simply highlighting the photographs released from time to time by North Korea of their dear leader touring various industrial sites, water parks and schools, it fixates on the absurd: Just what exactly is Kim Jong Il looking at?

So when are we going to see pics of the Dear Leader touring one of many sprawling labour camps? You know, he can check in on the public executions, make sure everyone is starving accordingly, forced abortions, beatings, torture...Come on you fat, pot-bellied pigmy...Go look at the hell on earth you have created.
