Monday: Yes, sir. No, sir. Three bags full, sir. I'm sick of it. That's the problem with being Supreme Leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. You never know if people really, really agree with you or whether they're only saying they do because they know you'll round up them and all their families and have them shot if they don't. It's not fair.

But I have plan. "I'm going to ban sarcasm," I tell my officials. "Then I'll know what people truly think."

They agree it's great idea.
