Looks like 2011 is still full of surprises, especially with Team America's archenemy, North Korea's Kim Jong-Il, finally kicking the bucket and passing on the reign to his son -- who, I'm certain, will be a far more decent human being...
Mr Kim, who has led the communist nation since the death of his father in 1994, died on a train while visiting an area outside the capital, the announcement said.
He suffered a stroke in 2008 and was absent from public view for months.
Pyongyang described his son Kim Jong-un as the "great successor" and urged North Koreans to unite behind him.
"All party members, military men and the public should faithfully follow the leadership of comrade Kim Jong-un and protect and further strengthen the unified front of the party, military and the public," North Korea's state-run news agency, KCNA, said.
North Korea also has a beautiful side.
