Chinese Paper Falls for Onion Spoof

About noted heartthrob Kim Jong-un.

The People's Daily ran a 55-page photo spread of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after he was declared The Onion's Sexiest Man Alive for 2012.

He is shown riding horses, holding children and greeting his troops.

The spread is accompanied by tongue-in-cheek quotes from The Onion about the "Pyongyang-born heart-throb".

"With his devastatingly handsome, round face, his boyish charm, and his strong, sturdy frame, this Pyongyang-born heart-throb is every woman's dream come true," the People's Daily quotes The Onion as saying.

"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."

This has happened before. In 2002, the Beijing Evening News, with a circulation of over 1.25 million people, fell for a spoof about the United States Capitol dome.

Beijing's most popular newspaper has unwittingly republished a bogus story about U.S. Congress threats to skip town for Memphis or Charlotte unless Washington builds them a new Capitol building with a retractable dome.

The source? America's celebrated spoof tabloid, the Onion.

The Beijing Evening News, which claims a circulation of 1.25 million, translated portions of the Onion's tall tale word-for-word in the international news page of its June 3 edition.

The reprinted version of the May 29 article, which parodies Congress as a major league baseball team, also copied the Onion's would-be blueprint for a new legislative home that resembles a ballpark.

"Don't get us wrong: We love the drafty old building," the Onion jestingly quoted House Speaker Dennis Hastert saying.

"But the hard reality is, it's no longer suitable for a world-class legislative branch. The sight lines are bad, there aren't enough concession stands or bathrooms, and the parking is miserable."

Heh.

40 A political science professor at Butler University asks students to disregard their “American-ness, maleness, whiteness, heterosexuality, middle-class status” when writing and speaking in the classroom – a practice the school’s arts and sciences dean defended as a way to negate students’ inherent prejudices.

The syllabus of the course at Butler, a small Midwestern liberal arts institution in Indianapolis, spells out that students should use “inclusive language” because it’s “a fundamental issue of social justice.”

“Language that is truly inclusive affirms sexuality, racial and ethnic backgrounds, stages of maturity, and degrees of limiting conditions,” the syllabus states, referencing a definition created by the United Church of Christ.

The syllabus of the class, called Political Science 201: Research and Analysis, goes on to ask students “to write and speak in a way that does not assume American-ness, maleness, whiteness, heterosexuality, middle-class status, etc. to be the norm.” It is taught by a black, female professor.

57 Ok, read the transcript of the SNL Dukakis speech. It is completely and totally epic. Liberals are the laughing stock of politics. This is where we need to get back to.

[ open on Michael Dukakis sitting in a chair in a darkened room ]Michael Dukakis: Good evening. I'm Michael Dukakis. The Democratic candidate for President of the United States. Now, several months ago when we purchased this half-hour of television time, we planned to use it as a last-minute appeal to undecided voters. But.. quite frankly.. after meeting with my advisors, and seeing the latest polls, it's clear to me - and it would be clear to anyone - that I don't have a chinaman's chance of winning this election. I'm gonna be beaten. Badly beaten. And I see no reason to sit here tonight and pretend otherwise. However, I've got thirty minutes of prepaid, non-refundable network time. Now, I could sit here, give you thesame old song-and-dance about "good jobs with good wages", and "the best Ameroca is yet to come".. blah, blah, blah, blah! But if you haven't bought it by now, why bother? So, instead of speeches, I've decided to throw a party, for everyone involved with the campaign. It's a good party. A fun party. And you're invited. After all, the federal matching funds - you paid for half of it! So come on in.[ Dukakis gets up, as the lights rise and a woman removes his business suit and replaces it with a Hugh Hefnerish smoking jacket, then he joins the party ][ SUPER: Dukakis After Dark ]Michael Dukakis: [ is handed a drink by a bunny ] Ah! Everybody's here. Come on, don't be shy. Well, here's my running-mate, Lloyd Bentsen.[ pan to Lloyd Bentsen, who's chatting with two attractive girls ]Lloyd Bentsen: ..Then I looked him straight in the eye, and said, "Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy!" Ha ha!Michael Dukakis: [ ambles over ] Lloyd. How's that martini treating you?Lloyd Bentsen: Not too badly, Mike. I wish the polls were treating us a little better.Michael Dukakis: Well, Lloyd, we represent unpopular and discredited views.Lloyd Bentsen: Mike! Now that it's all over, you can tell me. You were gonna raise taxes, weren't you?Michael Dukakis: Well, you bet I was! Through the roof! But now.. I won't get the chance.Kitty Dukakis: [ from across the room ] Michael, would you come over here, please?Michael Dukakis: [ to the camera ] Well, as usual, Ted Kennedy's got his eye on a beautiful brunette. In this case, my wife Kitty.[ cut to Kitty and Ted Kennedy in the corner ]Ted Kennedy: [ touching Kitty's dress ] This is very nice.. what's it made of..?Kitty Dukakis: Senator Kennedy, please..Ted Kennedy: You know, Kitty.. after a defeat like this, Mike's gonna need some time alone.. If you like, you're welcome to come down to Hiannas Port for a few days. Of course, you can have your own room.. Kitty Dukakis: No, I don't think that would be a good idea, do you, Senator?Ted Kennedy: Here. Watch this. [ swigs his beer, letting it drip down his shirt ]Michael Dukakis: [ observing ] Well, it looks like these two want to be alone! [ looks across the room ] There's my friend Leroy Neiman. Let's go see what Leroy's doing. [ approaches Leroy, who's painting a mural ] Hello, Leroy. That's great. It's great. What do you call it?Leroy Neiman: Governor, I call this "What Might Have Been". It shows the nuclear aircraft carrier Niemitz after its conversion into a floating shelter for the homeless.Michael Dukakis: Well, it's beautiful, Leroy.Leroy Neiman: Thank you.Michael Dukakis: I think it's right up there with the Olympic Moment series that you did for Burger King.Leroy Neiman: Thank you.Willie Horton: [ across the room ] Mike! My main man!Michael Dukakis: [ walks over ] Willie Horton. Give me five. Come on, give me five.Willie Horton: Hey, man, this party is great! Yo! Thanks for the furlough.Michael Dukakis: It's no problem, homeboy. I'm just sorry I won't be able to give you that presidential pardon.Willie Horton: Oh, that's alright, man, you tried. Say.. you know Donna Rice? [ introduces blonde woman he's dancing with ]Michael Dukakis: Of course. Hello, Donna.Donna Rice: Hi, Mike. Would you like to join us for some dirty dancing?Michael Dukakis: Maybe later, kids. [ to the camera ] For now, come with me, I'd like you to meet the person that I consider the greatest living American - Jimmy Carter.[ Jimmy is engaged in conversation with Lloyd Bentsen ]Lloyd Bentsen: ..I looked him right in the eye, and said, "Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy!"Jimmy Carter: Yes, well, I think I heard that, Lloyd..Michael Dukakis: Jimmy?Jimmy Carter: Oh, hello, Mike.Michael Dukakis: I'm about to lose as bad as you did. Maybe worse. How did you deal with it afterwards?Jimmy Carter: Well, basically, Michael, you go through three stages. The first is Denial: "I did win! I am the President! Yahoo!" But then when Reagan got inaugurated, I had to move on to the next stage.Michael Dukakis: Which is?Jimmy Carter: Anger. I was one pissed-off cracker!Michael Dukakis: And then what?Jimmy Carter: Well, then, Michael - Acceptance. I had to accept the fact that I was a downer. A liberal downer. A malaise-ridden liberal downer. A free-spending malaise-ridden liberal downer, who only knew..Michael Dukakis: Jimmy, Jimmy.. believe me, I understand. [ looks across the room ] Is that Joan Baez? It is. Let's go listen. Why don't you join us?[ show Joan Baez singing ]Joan Baez: "You're lateral disarmament, abortions on demandTake everybody's guns away, and toss them in the sand.Freec condoms for the kidsWe'll not blame the criminals for anything he did.For who cam say what's right or wrong, if there's such a thing as sin?And all that really matters, is wars we lose or win.Michael Dukakis: [ sitting on couch ] Well, thanks for coming to the party. That just about does it for the campaign. You know, I think the one thing that really hurt us is the fact that Reaganomics works. It really does. I mean, aren't you better off than you were eight years ago? I know I am. How about the rest of you? [ looks at his guests, who shake their heads in agreement ] I wish you weren't, but you are. You are better off. And there's no denying it. Well, I'd like to thank my guests - my running-mate, Lloyd Bentsen, who'd asked me to remind you he's still on the ballot down in Texas; Jane Fonda; Daniel Ortega; an, of course, my good friend Ted Kennedy. Good night.

68 That "Butler" story is sadly indicative of what kids are being brainwashed to think in colleges now. It's all about what these lunatics call "Kyriarchy" where the straight white male is the boogieman, and everyone else must purge themselves of this evil. For example, a blak man who does not like gays needs to accept gay marriage because be not liking gays, he is perpetuating the "privilege" of straight white males.

I've been thinking about starting a blog to talk about this "kyriarchy" and am considering having it be a parody blog talking about "kyriarchy."

For example, a blak man who does not like gays needs to accept gay marriage because be not liking gays, he is perpetuating the "privilege" of straight white males.

I've been thinking about starting a blog to talk about this "kyriarchy" and am considering having it be a parody blog talking about "kyriarchy."

I'm thinking that there probably won't be a retraction coming from 'The People's Daily'.

And the author who fell for the Onion Spoof has probably already 'disappeared'.

76 Being from Indiana, and very familiar with Butler, I feel the need to defend the school.

In my experience, it is a very fine school. The people that go there are generally conservative or moderate. I would much rather my child go to Butler than Indiana University, as I have seen a LOT of people go off to IU and turn bleeding heart liberal.

I went to a "liberal arts" university, and it was about as "liberal" as a Mitt Romney ralley at a BYU football game. That said, every school has its nuts. Lord knows mine did, and apparently Butler does. I don't think that makes it a crap college. "Cow college" offended me.

It is a high quality university with standards (not one of these "every kid gets a trophy" schools). It has a lovely campus and produces top notch graduates.

Side note: my cousin, who comes from a very Catholic family and has attended private school his whole life, chose his college between Butler and IU.....I wish he had chosen Butler. All of the sudden, after one year of IU, he is some poor, oppressed, public school statistic. People that go to private schools, like Notre Dame and Butler, are the "1%ers" Those of us who've never attended a public school just "don't understand." Give me a break.

80 Also this proves the USA is still number one even after Bush and with Obama running the show.

We may suck, thankfully the rest of this earth is even more inept...everything is relative...

81 Only North Koreans voted and it was unanimous. Brad Pitt got as many votes as Romney did in certain Philadelphia precincts. Of course it is fair and unbiased. What's wrong with you people?
