There's been no lack of dubious claims for us to raise our eyebrows at over the years, whether it's about some fantastical car reaching the market on schedule and on budget, the veracity of a concept car's space-age powertrain, or reports of a blogger actually stepping outside and into the sunlight. But this one, like all glorious claims of the past – may their memory bring honor to their country for a thousand years to come – takes the proverbial cake.

In an ongoing and largely futile effort to show their recently and rapidly promoted supreme leader as the experienced governor and all-around superhuman mastermind the rest of the world doubts he is, the so-called Democratic People's Republic of Korea is painting one heck of a picture of Kim Jong Eun. According to North Korea, the scion of the late dictator Kim Jong Il was already driving a car at age 3. Impressive, but what's more is that he could apparently speed down a dirt road – rally-style – at speeds up to 75 mph by age 8.

It may be too early to tell if Eun has achieved anything of consequence in between having mastered driving while still in diapers and assuming control of a totalitarian nuclear power, but we can tell you this won't be the last dubious claim that we'll hear from his office in the near future.

      I bet that horse is thankful that he took up driving and not horse jumping.

        That horse is one failed jump away from being dinner in N Korea, land of the 140# soldier.

      They mean "driving" through a box or Oreo cookies. They have Fischer Price in NKorea, don't they?

      He is so much smarter than me. I couldn't do brain surgery until I was 8.

      It's going to be hard for him to break his daddy's record of 18 at the Peoples National Golf Course.

      In 2003 Kim Jong Eun was awarded the North Korean equivalent of an Oscar for his portrayal of the character "Meg" in a film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women". One critic was quoted as saying." It was the most heart felt performance of a man playing a young girl I have ever seen, and believe you me, I have seen a lot of that crap around here."

      I heard that when he was 6 years old he was able to eat more boiled eggs than cool hand Luke, dug the Panama canal with his bare hands, and built the entire internet out of nothing more than some string and 3 gallons of actual human elbow grease. Chuck Norris better watch out!

      I mastered driving my Tonka truck at age 1 but you don't see me bragging about it.
