Kim Jong-un Is a Shoo-In for Time's Most Influential Person of the Year Thanks to 4chan

You'd think that after 4chan founder Christopher "moot" Poole was voted 2009's Most Influential Person in the World thanks in overwhelming part to a flood of 4chan users looking to game the system, Time magazine would quit handing the decision to Internet users.

But, happily, you'd be wrong.

Heads up, China: This year, 4chan is once again looking to take advantage of Time's lax approach toward bestowing hyperbolic titles by manipulating the survey to crown North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un 2012's most influential person.

The Glorious Leader's vote tally currently stands at an insurmountable 3,045,783 and climbing. Compare that with Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, who is angling for first runner-up with just under 400,000 votes at the time of writing.

Then again, that too might be the work of /b/tards, who just launched phase two of the operation, which involves strategically voting for certain candidates so that the their names spell out "KJU GAS CHAMBERS."
