ChiCom Newspaper Falls for Onion Story Calling Kim Jong Un ‘Sexiest Man Alive’

Geez, they’re almost as gullible as our own state-run media.

Editors at China’s top Communist Party newspaper have been left red faced after declaring North Korean leader Kim Jong Un the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’.

The People’s Daily ran a series of striking photos of their neigbouring country’ s young leader to accompany news of the award – a hoax gong handed out by US satirical website The Onion.

‘The Onion has named North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un as the sexiest man alive  for the year 2012,’ declared the paper.

The award is a trademark hoax by the popular Onion website but the heavily tongue in cheek story failed to register a smirk with Chinese editors, who are keen to report positive stories about the hermit leader who runs China’s fellow communist neighbours.

‘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.

    His Old Man was the best golfer in the world according to The Peoples Daily: 35 holes in one on his first try on his new, and only, course somewhere in North Korea. Eat your heart out Rory. And the kid is better looking than you too. LOL

    Reminds me of the picture of Obama coming out of the ocean a few years ago.
    Guy has man-boobs yet the press swoons.
    Very similar to the North Korea commie sycophants.

    Oh FerChrissake they were writing about my boy, Rory McElroy. “With his devastatingly handsome round face, his boyish charm,and his strong sturdy frame, this Irish-bred heartthrob is every woman’s dream come true.”
    But you all know how modern journalists are. Case closed.

    Moe tom, Holly shit Bro, you coming out of the closet or what? LOL. Golf, is not a sport. I’m telling you does not qualify. Get Rory on a wrestling mat for the first period, lets see how hard he’s blowing.
