North Koreans are now reportedly required to get Kim Jong-un haircuts - The Week

North Koreans are now reportedly required to get Kim Jong-un haircuts

New season means it's time for a new haircut! North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly mandated that every man in the isolated country receive the same haircut as their supreme leader.
And in a related story, all American men are being ordered to wear mom jeans, ride girls bikes, and when throwing a baseball, throw it like a q****. All hail the dear leaders!

Your implied premise of this topic is so stupid I don't even know where to start. Are you insinuating that Obama is going to force everyman to get the same haircut he does, and act feminine?

There is really no hope for you, is there?

If you mean no hope of returning to cuckoo land then, yes, all hope is lost on me.

That has got to be the strangest country in the world to live in. From before the latest change:

Quote:
The list of 18 acceptable female hairstyles show North Korean women are given more choice in their coiffeur after they wed. Approved styles for single women are simple but married women are permitted to indulge in a few extra stylistic flourishes. This also has the useful effect of establishing whether a woman is married or not at a glance. If you like it, then you should have put some curlers in it, to paraphrase Beyonce.

Men are somewhat more restricted, with only ten styles to choose from and a longer list of rules to follow. The hair of the country's young men should be less than 5 cm long and they should have a haircut once every 15 days as longer hair apparently takes away nutrition from their brains. Older men, whose brains are presumably in decline anyway, are allowed to rock out with hair as long as 7 cm.

.....break......

Perhaps a touch unfairly, it appears from the list that North Korean men are not allowed to emulate the preferred hairdo of the country's new leader. Kim himself has most recently been seen sporting longer hair on top with a center parting and his head completely shaved at the sides, a style popular in the West among teenage fans of bands such as Pearl Jam and the Lemonheads in the early 1990s.
Capita list: North Korea approves 28 model socialist hairstyles
Maybe they have been begging for that hip hairdo.

OP didn't blame it on Obama, but he sure attributed that Obama would be apt to do something like this

So every male in North Korea is going to be walking around looking like Joe Strummer in the Clash video for Rock the Casbah.
