In a stunning announcement Sunday, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un told OFF THE WALL NEWS that the country of North Korea had sent a "volunteer" astronaut on a mission to the sun to prove it is "hotter there, than here".
The mission was to have began in mid August when a North Korean resident was chosen in a lottery to become the first man to the sun. Ho Lee Fuk, 29 was chosen because of his dark complexion, making him, according to Jung-Un, the perfect candidate. Fuk was launched skyward on August 12th, sitting high a top of a North Koran rocket in a capsule named QuJung 1 which translates loosely to Crisp 1.

"This is proof that the climate out there is hotter than on Earth" Kim Jung-Un boasted. "In Mr. Fuk's honor, I have named a sun tan lotion after him." The sun screen Ho Lee Fuk is now available in all North Korean drug stores and is rated a protection rating of 502, for the exact time his capsule exploded. OFF THE WALL NEWS hopes to verify this story with our reporters north of the DMZ. Dave Taylor may travel to Picnic Island to investigate.
