PYONGYANG, North Korea – North Korea’s diminutive despot Li’l Kim Jong Un has a new, sweet ride.

The North Korean Central News Agency released pictures of Li’l Kim’s “Air Force Un”, a 174-foot Soviet sweetie that was the world’s largest jetliner when it debuted in 1963.

And, one can just imagine him bragging how he picked up this baby for about 110-million won, the North Korean currency. That’s about $100,000 US. And the irony of this (as if North Korea needs more irony) is that Li’l Kim’s dead dad, Biggie Kim, was afraid to fly, using an armored train to travel.

If the jet was Li’l Kim’s present to himself, a big fireworks display was his present to his cold and hungry people to help them celebrate what would have been Biggie Kim’s 73rd birthday on February 16.
