Kim Jong Il touches toilet paper before death

Media

Can't make any promises, but this should be the last post about Kim Jong Il of the day.

Here he is wearing a fun hat at North Korea's "first supermarket" last Thursday (a couple days before he died), according to South Korean newspaper The Chosun Llbo. From the photo you can see he's been left in shock and awe at the pure ingenuity of man: toilet paper.

Kim's final so-called on-the-spot guidance tour was to the Kwangbok street shopping center, where he was accompanied by Jon Il-chun, a high school classmate and chief of a special department in the Workers Party codenamed Room 39 that manages Kim's private coffers.

A South Korean security official said Jon's presence during the visit suggests the profits from the supermarket were to go straight into Kim's private coffers.
