Kim Jong-un (standing by a dishwasher): "Who is it?"

Minion: "Hard to say, Supreme Leader. Could be Groucho Marx from Duck Soup new latest movie from imperialist dogs of great dictatorship of America, just hitting cinemas now. Though having looked at the capitalist plot that is the internet, this man also bears a resemblance to Glorious Supreme Leader of Limerick Willie O'Dea. See? Here is picture of him with a gun.
