Commie Paper Hails 'Sexiest Man' Piece at 'The Onion'

UPDATE  NYT not completely sure that the Chinese did not know this was all a spoof.  Seems like a stretch to me.  Then there's the matter of a slide show about an official with a sex tape.

Earlier: Fun story for today:  Online news outlet for Communist Party in China runs with piece in The Onion hailing North Korea's leader as its "Sexiest Man Alive."  Quoting the Onion, the Chinese newspaper wrote, ''With his devastatingly handsome, round face, his boyish charm, and his strong, sturdy frame, this Pyongyang-bred heartthrob is every woman's dream come true."

"Blessed with an air of power that masks an unmistakable cute, cuddly side, Kim made this newspaper's editorial board swoon with his impeccable fashion sense, chic short hairstyle, and, of course, that famous smile," the People's Daily cited The Onion as saying.
The photos the People's Daily selected include Kim on horseback squinting into the light and Kim waving toward a military parade. In other photos, he is wearing sunglasses and smiling, or touring a facility with his wife.
