‘Giant’ Spotted at North Korean Memorial

Posted on December 30, 2011


From Gawker: “A sharp-eyed user of the social news site Reddit spotted this giant among the bystanders during Kim Jong-Il’s funeral procession. Is this a genetically-modified superwarrior, or just a famous North Korean basketball player?

Reddit users speculate that the man is 7′ 9″ North Korean celebrity giant Ri Myung Hun. Once named the tallest man in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records, Ri is North Korea’s only internationally famous basketball player. He tried to play in the NBA in the late ’90s, but was prohibited by the State Department, probably because they knew he’d destroy all our comparatively miniature American basketball players.”

We prefer the super soldiers angle, to be honest.
