KimJongUn.jpg
China’s People’s Daily falls for Onion spoof naming Kim Jong Un “Sexiest Man Alive.” Apparently nobody told them The Onion is a comedy website, we get that, but at some point during the process of asembling their own 55-photo-spread of Dear Leader (55 photos!), nobody noticed the guy wasn’t sexy? Really?

The page linked has changed, but Google translate is doing a cracker of a job keeping me up to date on events in China. For instance:

We are also very anxious Shijingshan mysterious loud noise chase source District Publicity Department:
Mo Yan ranked writer Rich List Youth Report deforestation were listed as fugitives
Shenzhen “Housing Secretary” case informants was arrested for allegedly “false registered capital crimes”
Ruiying assessment San Haosheng because they can not tears Huaxi Village Forbidden City cited friends marvel

What will they think of next?!?

No, no, no – it was “unsexiest man alive”, they misread it…

I checked Facebook at work for a second and saw a bunch of people saying “No, China, we’re laughing WITH you”. Didn’t know what all that was about. Now that I do….”Yeah, China, I’m laughing AT you”.

Didn’t the Lame Stream media do the same thing with “Dear Leader” and pull it off? Obviously being totally stupid is a world wide phenomenon.

They knew it was fake.

But just like here, if its a story about the ‘Dear Leader’ you don’t ask questions, you run with it.

His grandfather was very very handsome. No joke. Too bad that he started the BS that lead to the crap, starvation, cannibalism, persecution, abductions, darkness, etc. that is part of North Korea.

Once someone “sounds gay” does it flamming or swishy really make a difference at that point?

But if you really want my opinion on that one I’d say “swishy”. Now If you had said you “could just eat him right on up and then sop up what’s left with a biscuit” then it would be “flaming”

I can understand why they fell for this hogwash. After 4+ years of watching our moron media proclaim Obama to be a genius and a “sort of god”, they must’ve just figured we have much lower standards for these sorts of things. Either that, or they are laughing at our obvious stupidity (Hey, these stupid Yanks think Obama is smart and Tubby Kim is sexy! Can you believe it???? )

No, that’s North Korean military officers sitting behind Kim Jong Un.
