That ‘Kim Jong-Un Feeds His Uncle to Dogs’ Story May Have Started as a Joke

General January 6, 2014

That 'Kim Jong-Un Feeds His Uncle to Dogs' Story May Have Started as a JokeThe story about North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un feeding his "traitorous" uncle to a pack of starving dogs, was met with a healthy bit of skepticism (and a lot of morbid fascination), but no one was even sure how such a story came to be. It turns out everyone might have been smearing Kim Jong-un's good name, but the story of outrageous probably came from a Chinese satirist who posted it on the country's biggest social media site, Reuters explains. A Chicago-based software engineer named Trevor Powell wrote a lengthy blog post explaining that the "story" first appeared on the satirical Weibo account "Pyongyang Choi Seongho," which had previously made jokes along the lines of the U.S. being thankful for Kim Jong-un on Thanksgiving. The story spread so far because, well, Kim feeding his uncle to dogs isn't that far removed from the stories we hear about North Korea on what seems like a daily basis (see: unicorns, human rights violations, denial of human rights violations, etc.).
