Satirical magazine the Onion has named North Korean leader Kim Jong-un the "Sexiest Man Alive for 2012".
"Blessed with an air of power that masks an unmistakable cute, cuddly side, Kim made this newspaper's editorial board swoon with his impeccable fashion sense, chic short hairstyle, and, of course, that famous smile", it said on Monday.
It claimed last year's winner in the spoof rankings was Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, preceded in 2008 by "Unabomber" Ted Kaczinski and in 2007 the Onion's fictional proprietor T. Herman Zweibel.
"With his devastatingly handsome, round face, his boyish charm, and his strong, sturdy frame, this Pyongyang-bred heartthrob is every woman's dream come true", it said. "He has that rare ability to somehow be completely adorable and completely macho at the same time".
It quotes the Onion's style and entertainment editor Marissa Blake-Zweibel, who may or may not owe her job to her association with the proprietor, as saying Kim's wife Ri Sol-ju is "one lucky lady" to be married to him.
