It seems that Kim Jong-il, Dear Leader of North Korea, fancies himself to be quite the golfer. He only recently decided to take up the game, but he started off with a bang. He shot 38 under par in his very first attempt on North Korea's one and only 18-hole golf course. The round included a hole-in-one on five different holes. Dear Leader was reportedly smitten with the game after that round.
I can see why.
He supposedly routinely shoots three or four holes-in-one per round nowadays. That is if you don't believe the rumors that he died a while back. I'm on the fence with that one.
Whether or not he is actually this good at golf (he's not...no one is), the guy has a fascinating life. Dear Leader, in addition to his supreme golfing skills, has composed six operas and he enjoys staging elaborate musicals. He is a self-proclaimed expert at, um, the Internet.
Man, if this guy wasn't either batshit crazy or dead he might be my favorite World Leader of all-time. But he is either batshit crazy or dead and his country has nucleur weapons, so I'm gonna put my Kim Jong-il tattoo on the shelf for the time being.
Too bad. It was gonna be fucking sweet!
