Life Imitating Art
I was scrolling through this small photo album of pictures from a businessman traveling through North Korea, and this one struck me:
On a frosty day, peasants cluster on a remote country lane to dig at the ice caking roads and streams so they can access the mud underneath. Mud is valuable as a fertiliser. Throughout the seasons, piles of mud and even human manure will be applied onto fields in order to make the crops grow better.I was instantly reminded of a scene from Monthy Python & the Holy Grail - watch the first 3 minutes of this clip and tell me the picture isn't a North Korean version of this scene, sans King Arthur and Patsy. Anarcho-syndaclist ideology, filth gathering and all. Especially relevant is the woman scurrying around in the mud around 1:01 proclaiming "Dennis! There's some lovely filth down here...!"

The bombast of the black knight (around 6:50) after having lost all his limbs is a lot like Hizbuttollah claiming victory after the mauling they received from the IDF. Ha ha ha ha ha
