In North Korea it’s supposedly mandatory for all citizens to have a picture of their glorious leader Kim Jong-Un on the wall but here in Britain it’s not really encouraged, that is unless you’re pulling a prank on your oblivious mum.
Enter Jake, who’s brother has played a cheeky prank on his mum by swapping out photos of himself for the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

And while you’d expect most people to notice that their beloved son had been swapped with one of the 21st centuries few remaining dictators you’d be wrong.
According to Jake, who’s shared the hilarious joke on Twitter, it’s been two weeks since his brother pulled off the switch and his mum’s noticed nothing yet.
Those on Twitter went mad for the joke…

Of course some claimed she had noticed and wasn’t arsed by her son’s prank…

Whether his mum’s noticed or not I think we can all agree this is a brilliant joke!
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
