Can you say "What the dash-dash-dash-dash" ...?!

Want an "inside look" into life in North Korea? I highly recommend -- nay, urge -- you to read this comic:

That said, bellow you'll find a story that recently appeared on the North Korean government's official Web site. For the life of me I cannot figure out what the hell it's supposed to mean.

Perhaps one of my Commie readers'll enlighten me via e-mail, and reference Dreams From My Father, when appropriate ...

Story about Crust of Overcooked Rice

Pyongyang, November 4 (KCNA) -- President Kim Il Sung came to his residence late on a summer evening of Juche 35 (1946) together with an official who was in charge of the construction of Kim Il Sung University to discuss the project with him.

A woman informed anti-Japanese heroine Kim Jong Suk of the fact that President Kim Il Sung came with a guest.

Kim Jong Suk said in a low voice that for the heated discussion of work, the President didn't inform her of his coming with the guest; she prepared the table regardless of her evening meal and entered the room carrying the table with her.

When the woman said with tearful eyes that she would skip her evening meal again, Kim Jong Suk replied with a smile that there was the crust of overcooked rice, adding that she would like to prepare tables ten times a day for those who were devoting themselves to the efforts for the construction of the country, true to the leadership of the President.

At that time there was nothing special in the residence compared with the people's life.

Not a day passed without preparing the table for the visitors to the residence. So she was often to eat the crust of overcooked rice for her meal as she prepared the meals for the visitors with the rice rationed like ordinary people.
