Commenter Adam Smith pasted the link to the video below under Monday's post Bizarro-world stupidity out of the Orient. That post was about North Korea. Peak Stupidity has found itself on some sort of North Korea kick this whole week so far. That will end with this one, as there are loads of posts that have accumulated in the queue* from the time on our trip.
I don't know why this video is so funny, at least the 1st time around, but, believe me, it is. I think it's that I can imagine leaders of N. Korea that may come up with crazy stunts being like Lawn Chair Larry Walters but with unlimited funds and budgets and much less of a history of common sense, DIY, practical know-how.
If anyone reading knows Korean, can you tell me if the audio matches the captions. If yes, is this Koreans having some fun or is it people in on the fun but still the butt of the joke at the same time? Who is the cutie in the uniform?
UPDATE: Commenter Hail, who knows a lot about Korea says the caption says in general:
Here are these new big sun-umbrellas installed to help the traffic guards from the glare of the sun. They can also be used for rain, and help work proceed at maximum efficiency. And while they are transportable, mostly they are praising how comfortable it is to use them for shade or protection from precipitation. It's a great innovation. "I am so happy about this great innovation."Peak Stupidity will have posts coming on the shitshow called airport security (well, what would a reader expect?), the political correctness, now in it's more deadly form, wokeness, in the UK, and some residual Kung Flu stupidity, with a number of pictures. Every picture tells a story, don't it?. That is, as soon as the lead blogger recovers...
* In fact the very word "queue" is in here due to our trip to the UK. (I do know the word has been used for a long time in the computer world and the math that inhabits that world.)
