Own the Mouse That Kim Jong-Un Wants to Destroy the World WithS

North Korea is one scary place! Kim Jong-un is one scary young man! Recently, the country's state media released this photo of The Great Successor sitting at a computer. Make that, a super computer. In a large metal box.

Just look at those military officers gathered around. And look at how Kim Jong-un is sitting in a fancy dinning room chair. And more importantly, look at that Logitech mouse with the red trackball on it. Red because it's dangerous.

Perhaps, you would also like to own the same trackball that Kim Jong-un uses. As The Washington Post pointed out, the mouse in the above photo is a Logitech mouse—make that, the Logitech Trackman Marble mouse, which retails for about US$30 in filthy capitalist establishments.

Why Logitech? I wonder! According to the company's PR pitch: "Left handed? Right handed? When you're working on your computer day and night, and you want more flexibility, the Logitech® Trackman® Marble® will help increase your comfort level." AS YOU DESTROY THE ENTIRE WORLD®. I added that last part.

From the looks of it, Kim Jong-un isn't using the Trackman Marble's latest color variation, which is a dark gray version with silver buttons (above). Instead, he's using the silver version with dark buttons (below) that, I think, first hit a few years back.

So if you want that version, you might have to search around. Because really, if it's good enough for Kim Jong-un, it's probably good enough for you, comrade.
