Dead comedian Benny Hill has caused a diplomatic row by accusing the North Korean government of being ‘sirry irriots.’ Speaking through a medium Hill, aged 105, criticised the North Korean government’s recent threats to rain nuclear war on their southern neighbours as ‘tewibbol’.
‘They are being velly foo-rish,’ he said, apparently talking with oversize comedy teeth. ‘They should just sit down together over a bowl of egg-fly-lice and make flends.’
The Pyongyang politburo’s decision to recommission a nuclear facility capable of making arms-grade plutonium has attracted world-wide opprobrium. Even staunch ally China has branded the aggressive posturing of the North Koreans ‘unwise.’ But this is the first time that a deceased comedian has offered an opinion on the issue.
Hill said he recommended comedy as a route out of conflict. ‘Show both sides speeded-up images of a randy old man chasing women in suspenders round and round a garden to the tune of yakety-sax,’ he said, ‘and all will be well.’
Kim Jon-un, known to be a fan of the risqué humour of Norman Wisdom, Charlie Drake and Bernard Manning, said the idea was ‘interesting’.
‘I like women in low-cut tops,’ he said. ‘Cleavage can be seen as a symbol of reconciliation as well as division. I am looking into it.’
