Widespread reports are suggesting that North Korea’s Great Leader Kim Jong-un is ready to join the Pleasure Squad in the sky.
The tubby tyrant is plagued by a slew of health woes, including heart disease, obesity and other chronic ailments.
Now, speculation is rife on who will succeed the strongman.
Since pro sports are on ice, one of the leading sports books, Bovada, has issued odds on who will be the next king or queen of the Hermit Kingdom.
So far, leader of the pack is Kim Jong-un’s younger sister, Kim Yo Jong, and you can bet baby sis don’t miss when she aims her gun.
Already, the country’s National Assembly wants to expand her role to become “party centre” (successor) in a bid to keep the family line in power. That would make her the Dang Joong-ang (successor).
At -125 odds, she is the favourite to lead North Korea into the 20th century. Following is Kim Jong-un’s uncle Kim Pyong II at +150; party elders Choe Ryong Hae and Pak Pong Ju, both at +800; older bro, Kim Jong Chol at +1500, and any of the Great Leader’s offspring at +3300.
But because of North Korea’s sexist heritage, Kim Pyong II may pip little sister at the post.
At 65, he is the last known survivor of the country’s founder, Kim Il Sung, aka The Great Leader, and has spent most of his career as a diplomat in Europe. He was passed over in favour of his half-brother, Kim Jong II, aka Dear Leader.
All wagers have action, Bovada said in a release.
If Kim Jung Un remains the supreme leader of North Korea by Jan 1, 2022, then all wagers will be deemed void. Any wagers placed after news becomes public knowledge will also be deemed void.
