Strange: Bears in NK are crying because the 'Dear Leader' passed away

According to North Korean state media, bears are skipping hibernation and crying in the middle of the road because North Korean strongman Kim Jong-il passed away. They also blame plunging temperatures on Kim Jong-il's death. Perhaps if Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would all pass away this year, we could reverse global warming or something.
(Reuters) — The passing of North Korean strongman Kim Jong-il has been marked by plunging temperatures, mourning bears and now, according to North Korean state media, by flocks of magpies.
Kim, who died in December aged 69 years after 17 years running the world’s most reclusive state, was reputed to be able to control the weather, as well as to have scored a miraculous 38 under par round of golf.
“At around 17:30 on December 19, 2011, hundreds of magpies appeared from nowhere and hovered over a statue of President Kim Il Sung on Changdok School campus in Mangyongdae District, clattering as if they were telling him the sad news,” state news agency KCNA reported on Monday.
KCNA reported last week that a family of bears who usually hibernate through the fierce Korean winter had been seen lamenting Kim Jong-il’s death.
“The bears, believed to be a mother and cubs, were staying on the road, crying woefully,” it said.
