China’s party paper falls for Onion joke about Kim

The online version of China’s Communist Party newspaper has hailed a report by The Onion naming North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as the “Sexiest Man Alive” – not realizing it is satire.

The People’s Daily on Tuesday ran a 55-page photo spread on its website in a tribute to the round-faced leader, under the headline “North Korea’s top leader named The Onion’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2012.”

  1. Yep, we have to name that Onion/reality confusion thing. The Allium effect?

  2. Dim bulbs like reading The Onion.
