According to Sunday Sport newspapper (front page from 21st May 2017), based on recently leaked top secret documents and conclusion from a top NASA and Pentagon suggests that 'Kim is an ET sent as an "advance guard" to destabilise the planet ahead of a full-scale invasion from outer space'.

The report, entitled "Possible extra-terrestrial origin of North Korea high command", states that analysts have been examing the appearance and behaviour of Kim, 32, and several of his top North Korean generals.

I've tried to search, but I couldn't find such report.

How reliable is that information? Is Kim Jong UN really a space alien?

    Anyone that actually believes this story isn't going to be convinced by any facts we can present here. – Mad Scientist May 23 '17 at 12:43

    The Sunday Sport isn't a newspaper as such. It printed obviously made up rubbish. I belive the US equivalent is the National Enquirer, only rather further divorced from reality. Other Sunday Sport headlines I can remember include "London bus found on the moon" and "astronomers discover entrance to heaven just beyond orbit of Pluto". I.e. This isn't a notable claim because no-one could possibly take anything in that publication seriously. – PhillS May 23 '17 at 13:00

    I'm not at all convinced this is notable. Do many people believe the outlandish headlines in Sunday Sport? – Oddthinking May 23 '17 at 14:13

    I've added picture of Kim's space tongue as extra evidence, hope that helps. – kenorb May 23 '17 at 14:31

    @PhillS About a year ago I'd have agreed, but people took the "Pizzagate" story seriously despite the pizza place not even having a basement. And people still believe it. – Shadur May 25 '17 at 7:22

How reliable is that information?

Not reliable at all. The Sunday Sport wikipedia entry says as much:

...It prints plainly ludicrous stories, such as "London Bus Found Frozen In Antarctic Ice", or "World War II Bomber Found On The Moon". Defenders of the paper pointed out that it was not intended to be taken seriously.

They may have a wide audience, but it's more for entertainment reasons and not because they're a reliable lens with which to view the world.

    To be fair, "The Onion" is openly satirical, while the Sport and Enquirer don't actually admit their stories are false. – DJClayworth May 23 '17 at 13:16
  • National Enquirer broke John Edwards story when most left leaning mass media was ignoring (or suppressing) it. So your answer seems to mean the alien thing actually can be for realz. – user5341 May 23 '17 at 13:32

    Can anyone prove that a WW2 bomber wasn't found on the moon, or that Elvis doesn't live in it? Until they can I don't think people should be so dismissive of the best newspaper in the UK. I almost managed to type that with a straight face :) – Code Gorilla Sep 22 '17 at 14:43
