The Onion’s Chinese Edition


Most of us have read articles from The Onion, the organization that publishes fake news stories with a satirical spin. But did you know there is a Chinese version of The Onion?

A quick peek at today’s homepage reveals headlines like “Nothing At All Happens To 28 Tibetan Protesters, Their Families” and “Potato-Faced Youngster Lauded for Memorizing Primitive 26-Character Alphabet.” I don’t know why Caucasians are called “potato-faced” — I’ve never heard that term before — but the article pokes fun at how differently Chinese and Americans view education. I’ve always considered English to be a difficult language to learn, but I guess compared to Chinese, it’s laughably easy.
