Kim's pants

No not that Kim, this one.

For those few hardy souls who wish to continue, DailyNK tells us about the fastidious habits of North Korean despot Kim Jong Un.

The source also conveyed to Daily NK the interesting tidbit that Kim Jong Un allegedly only "uses items once before throwing them in the trash and acquiring new ones." This includes everyday necessities such as towels, toothbrushes, and even underwear. Handling the items that have touched the leader’s skin directly is considered to be work of "the utmost delicacy."

“Mishandling such treasured items can result in being labeled a reactionary until the end of your days, which is why each item is incinerated immediately upon completed use,” he concluded.

Must be pretty grim... no I don't care to speculate further. I need a coffee with a tot of rum.

What happens to the specially selected young girls that he has used?

Don't they get recycled?

Sam - your link suggests they will be paid off or perhaps downcycled to lesser hierarchy members.

I've got a ridiculous, bulgy track suit, which resembles all his kit.

I wear it when I get up too early for the others here, and sit in front of this screen, feeling warm and content!

The joy of life over there.

Michael - if you were Kim, you would only wear it once before minions stuff it into the incinerator. Having no favourite clobber says something about a chap.

James - the joy of life seems to be compulsory too.

Demetrius - and a smoking jacket. Quite a combination.
