    Giant man' spotted at North Korean funeral

    [​IMG]
    A photo of Kim Jong Il’s funeral has created an internet frenzy after eagle-eyed observers spotted a "giant" towering high above his countrymen.

    The Associated Press yesterday released photos of thousands of North Koreans lined up in orderly rows to watch their former dictator's funeral procession pass.

    But one image has aroused worldwide curiosity for the mysterious figure standing in the back row.

    The man appears to be about one third taller than the men to his left and right, with the tops of his legs almost at shoulder height with others standing in the crowd.

    It seems probable the tall man is North Korea's NBA star Ri 'Michael' Myung Hun, who is 235cm tall.

    The mystery man appears to be close to that height when compared with the other people around him.

    The average height of North Koreans is 166cm, 5cm shorter than their South Korean neighbours.

    The height difference has been blamed on the poor standard of living in the country.

    Sure it was not a scarecrow draped in NoKo regimental attire?

    That must be the secret mystical godlike guardian angel of North Korea, due to whom NoKo has been surviving for all these years even as a pariah state, even when faced against the whole world!
