North Korea Always Makes It Sound Cooler
The above picture was taken outside the DPRK embassy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. When I was walking by, I couldn't help but notice the "press release" entitled "The Flame of Upsurge is Kindled." View the larger image to read all about the march towards greatness that is taking place in DPRK.
All of this got me thinking. How much cooler would it be if Canada's government wrote press releases a la DPRK. Take this Stephen Harper quote, for example:
“In just over 100 days, Canada’s Economic Action Plan is already protecting Canadians, stimulating our economy and creating jobs from coast to coast to coast,” said the Prime Minister. “Ninety per cent of the funding for this fiscal year is now committed. Our Economic Action Plan is helping create or maintain an estimated 220,000 Canadian jobs by the end of 2010."That's nice and all, but it's not really exciting. What if we DPRK'ized it? I think it would go something like this:
"In just over 100 magnificent days, Canada's decisive Economic Action Offensive is already protecting our glorious nationals, stimulating our powerhouse economy, and creating jobs throughout our thriving and prosperous land as we move toward victory," said the leader Stephen Harper. "This offensive, which is intended to result in the next Great Leap Forward, has already seen an unprecedented funding committment of 90%. Our glorious nationals, who exhibit patriotic devotion unseen anywhere in the world, will witness 220,000 more jobs by the end of the victorious year of 2010."
