China paper believed The Onion news Nov. 27th, 2012 @ 10:12 PM Reply

A china paper called " The peoples daily : http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/
Recently posted an article congratulating Kim Jong-un on becoming the worlds sexiest man according to a US news paper...except that news paper was " The Onion " , hours later after The Onion linked the article that the Peoples daily paper fell for on their own site, the article was removed.

Why would Chinese editors suspect it was a parody? He obviously IS the sexiest man alive. If they aren't familiar with The Onion they would have no reason for suspicion.

i'd go gay for him if it wasn't illegal

This actually made me laugh.

I also have to agree, he looks incredibly majestic on that horse.
Someone should photoshop him in to an Abercombie poster.

People's Daily is a subsidiary of The Onion. Didn't you know?

But he IS the sexiest man on Earth.
He has given us men hope in times of desperation. He has given us dreams. Dreams of, someday, being half as handsome as that godly hunk of man. He is the true saviour of our vanity, and unlike everyone else, he does not glorify himself because of it, even though he deserves it.
Thank you, Kim Jong-un. Thank you, for giving us all hope. For being our hero.
We shall never forget. Never forget.

The Chinese probably don't understand why a country would have a fake comedy news organization.
