Light was shone upon a six-week mystery on Tuesday as Kim Jong Un finally showed himself to the world complete with fetching walking stick.
The North Korean leader had been absent from his normally rather brutal role of running a dictatorship for so long numerous conspiracy theories had grown legs and wandered far and wide across the internet.
In time-honoured fashion this didn't stop upon his reappearance. Oh no, everyone had their two cents worth about where he'd been.
Had he just been catching up on some TV ?

#WhereWasKimJongUn Watching Lost. He didn't care for the ending. 'There's a month I'm not going to get back,' he quipped.— Adrian Wale (@AdrianWale) October 14, 2014
Or maybe chasing a different political career...

Or even a musical one...
Is he heading for Hollywood?
Surely no one in the world lives more than six weeks from a KFC?
Same goes for McDonalds.

Top marks for imagination.

Then there was a bit of trending topic crossover.
Now it's getting silly...
But perhaps this is not the end...
