Anyhoo... Is it typical for korean men to have a somewhat chubby face? PSY has a face shaped kinda like that too.

Serves them right for that Coke joke they pulled on us years ago. 

That shiat was not funny at all.

I think Slashdot does similar punishment against morons, without the word filter, nowadays.

Yes. Your sample size of 2 is adequate to make this call.

It does but it is nearly impossible to pick up when reading a foreign language. "Getting" a joke or sarcasm requires a very high level if not native understanding of a language.

I think obamadidcoke: actually typed boobies, and it wasn't the boobies filter. The boobies filter changes boobies to boobies, but also changes the time stamp of your post so that boobies are nowhere near the boobies of the thread.

Nope. The Chinese have been fooled before:

On June 7, 2002, Reuters reported that the Beijing Evening News republished, in the international news page of its June 3 edition, translated portions of the article "Congress Threatens To Leave D.C. Unless New Capitol Is Built".[70] The story discusses the U.S. Congress's threats to leave Washington for Memphis, Tennessee; Charlotte, North Carolina; or even Toronto, Canada unless Washington, D.C. built them a new Capitol building with a retractable dome. The article is a parody of U.S. sports franchises' threats to leave their home city unless new stadiums are built for them.[71] Evening News initially stood by the story, demanding proof of its falsehood. It later retracted the article, responding that "some small American newspapers frequently fabricate offbeat news to trick people into noticing them with the aim of making money."[72]

Considering how many of facebook people I know who post Onion articles as if they were real (and freaking out - "omg Obama's really a commumuslim! This article from a reputable news source called The Onion says so!") I would say that sarcasm is not often found in native speakers either.

I've heard the explanation (though not sure how accurate it is) that newspapers in countries with state controlled media have a hard time understanding that things published in other countries might not be officially sanctioned statements.

Id love to hear the many explanations and their Engrish translations going on in China as to exactly what The Onion News site is. That would make some great reading, there.

To be honest, the quality of the articles of People's Daily has gone done over the years.

I only read it for the daily "Worker and Parasite" comics. Oh and their crosswords are pretty good as well.

I find it funny how several MSM websites now are making fun of this, how China got hoaxed.

Yet, daily, our MSM gets hoaxed by things exactly like this.

And in September, Iranian news agency Fars plagiarized an Onion story that claimed an "overwhelming majority of rural white Americans" would prefer Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over President Barack Obama.

Well, that one is true.

Yes. All Koreans are overweight.

In a hilarious if increasingly common example of a realsatirical newspaper taking a satirical newspaper seriously, the People's Daily-the website for the Communist Party of China's newspaper-published a story on Tuesday congratulating North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on being named 2012's "Sexiest Man Alive" by the Onion.

FIFTY.

Let's face it, I'm pretty sure the Chinese are well aware of what "state run media" means.
 
2012-11-27 02:54:13 PM
OK, I've been on Fark for about eight years now, and I don't get the boobies thing.
Can someone explain?
