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.

I hope the Russian press is better at fact-checking than the Chinese press, or someone is going to be very disappointed. Ol' Vlad was pretty sure he had the "sexiest world leader on a horse" title in the bag. Although his horse was having a bad hair day.

Lt_Ryan: Is it local fashion to have over sized pants? The majority of pants the men are wearing appear to have little taper to them, I know the country is stuck in the past but it almost looks like the suit designer took a page from the 80s classic of parachute pants when designing the fit. Not to mention the hats look like they were inspired by the halos in 15th century cathedrals stained glass.


Parachute pants got the name because they were made of shiny, thin fabric similar to that of a parachute. They were absolutely NOT big and billowy. In the 80s, all pants were skin tight. It was the anti-baggy pants era. (MC Hammer's turkish "harem pants" are sometimes erroneously referred to as "parachute pants.")

/Had a red pair and a black pair. They were mandatory if you were a teen/20-something in the 80s.
//Parachute pants had plenty of zipper pockets in which to store spare belt onions...

Technically the People's Daily story is accurate.

It states that the Onion declared Mr. Kim to be the sexiest man alive, which is true.

And the Onion has discovered them right back. From the story itself:

brandent: MassAsster: Does sarcasm not exist in other languages?

/not being sarcastic
//no, really

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.


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.

MadCat221: obamadidcoke: Boobies

You signed up in '09. You should know about that filter by now.


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


I don't think it's very common in North Korea...
