The Un is Named!

The Pillsbury Nuke Boy has set up one of his sons (Kim Jong-un) as the new ruler of North Korea's gulag with a UN seat. So natch, the young man needs a catchy name for the posters and coffee mugs, and what-not:

The youngest son of North Korea's authoritarian leader has been given the title of "Brilliant Comrade," a newspaper reported Friday, a sign the communist regime is preparing to name him as successor to the ailing Kim Jong Il.

"Brilliant Comrade"? Kind of lame, if you ask me.

And it is full of possibilities for dripping sarcasm in a restive and starving population whenever a new heroic 5-year effort is announced to increase turnip cultivation by 0.3%.

I'll stick with my name for the Un.
