Fatty the Third

According to the The Fiji Times, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has attracted the nickname "Fatty the Third" in China.

NORTH Korean leader Kim Jong-un strikes fear into some hearts, but photos of a Chinese street food vendor with a distinct resemblance to the Pyongyang strongman have fuelled online mirth.

Thousands of Chinese internet users commented on the images, with many referring to Kim by the nickname "Fatty the Third", a reference to his weight as well as his inheritance of his position from his father and grandfather.

I suspect "Fatty" is not a common nickname for North Koreans.

How about 'Lump'?

It means so much to us in the real world, but is indiscernible in their language (I hope)...

Did you hear on the news yesterday that he’d ‘like’ all male students to adopt his hair style? You reckon most students will politely decline? Or as they say in Glasgow, “See you Kimmy......”

Scrobs - I think there are many nicknames we could give him. I wonder what the N Koreans call him in private?

Mac - are they allowed to decline though?

Absolutely not and I wish I had enough hair left to join in!
