Dictator Kim Jong Un Named The Sexiest Man Alive for 2012

North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un has been named “The Sexiest Man Alive” 

What started as a joke by humor web site The Onion turned into major news that swept across China when the faux story was picked up by the People’s Daily, a mouthpiece for the Chinese Communist Party.

The Onion is proud to announce that North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-un, 29, has officially been named the newspaper’s Sexiest Man Alive for the year 2012.

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. Blessed with an air of power that masks an unmistakable cute, cuddly side, Kim made this newspaper’s editorial board swoon with his impeccable fashion sense, chic short hairstyle, and, of course, that famous smile.

“He has that rare ability to somehow be completely adorable and completely macho at the same time,” Onion Style and Entertainment editor Marissa Blake-Zweibel said. “And that’s the quality that makes him the sort of man women want, and men want to be. He’s a real hunk with real intensity who also knows how to cut loose and let his hair down.”

The Chicago Tribune’s Adam Minter says, “the Onion’s satire was perfectly engineered to appeal to editorial biases.”

So perfect was the ruse, that an online editor for the People’s Daily is still in denial about the satire:

“It was an objective report; the website did name him the sexiest man,” an online editor from the English-language version of, the website of People’s Daily, said yesterday, declining to be named.

“It is a fact.”

While this isn’t the first time a news report has been lost in translation, one can’t help but laugh.

The Chinese propaganda machine must have been overcome with emotion and joy, throwing logic to the wind, when an American news agency was seen as providing support for a budding communist dictator.
