I can see how a nation could be so easily duped. Look at him. My god, take it in people. He is man, brimming with machismo but with the soft skin and baby fat of a newborn. I want to wine and dine him on Saturday night and make love to him through Sunday morning and I’m a heterosexual. Is it really that unfathomable that North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un could be voted Sexiest Man Alive for 2012?
YES IT F**KING IS!
Which is why The Onion did exactly that. And it was a wonderful joke. It really was. It made me giggle. The only problem is, a few people didn’t get the joke. And by ‘a few people’, I mean the entire nation of China.
China’s People Daily Online reprinted portions of The Onion piece including those that hailed Kim Jung Un as having an “air of power that masks an unmistakable cute, cuddly side.”
The Chinese website also contributed a 55-page photo spread to accompany the story but has since been taken down. Although I can only speculate, it’s safe to say that such an extensive spread included a formal section, a swimsuit section and god willing, a few nudes for the more die-hard members of the King Jung Un fan club.
But since censors have since removed the spread, I can regrettably only leave you with this.
Look at him…up on that horse. I know what you’re thinking. You wish he were riding you. So do I.
