No pennies spent

There's a difference between an MMDE and a Mandela Effect.

All Mandela Effects are MMDE's, but not all MMDE's are Mandela Effects. When a large group of people believe something for which there is no evidence, they both appear to be the same. However, sometimes that outcome is a deliberate mass deception where it's origins and motivations can clearly be found, which is certainly not the case for a true Mandela Effect where the origins are always unknown.

The belief amongst North Koreans that Kim Jong il never went to the toilet is one such example, i.e. not a Mandela Effect but by definittion an MMDE. The belief this is true by people in that country persists today. 

There are a bunch of crazy things which the North Koreans are forced to believe which we in the West scoff at - from the safety of our nice, free democracies.
