Living in Japan I am very familiar with the threat from Kim Jong Il. I think that the Japanese press and politicians can be a bit hysterical about the whole issue because it is very unlikely that Kim Jong Il is the lunatic that he is portrayed as. I mean, he has controlled a whole country with an iron fist forcing people to live in abject poverty while he himself lives like a king. I’d say he’s a genius. A despicable man but a genius nonetheless. I don’t think we need to worry about war this time either as old Kim Jong Il is just flexing his military muscle. There would be no positive outcome from a war. Well, apart from Kim Jong Il and his cronies being removed from power and the country being opened up.
Anyways, above is a pretty cool tee from Crooked Monkey. There is not much design to it just Kim’s photo and some text but I think that is the beauty of it and helps give it a retro vibe.
Its a parody of both Kim Jong Il and the Beastie Boy’s debut album, Licensed to Ill.
