CHINA – China’s communist party is red faced, after actually believing North Korea’s Kim Jong Un was given the “world’s sexiest” title by satire publication The Onion.

The Chinese newspaper People’s Daily took the hoax and turned it into the headline, “North Korea’s Top Leader Named The Onion’s Sexiest Man Alive For 2012”. The paper congratulating the chubby commie with a 55 page photo spread of the supreme leader in super sexy poses.

Communist China clearly didn’t understand the sarcasm of the article, which describes Mr. Un as having a devastatingly handsome, round face. It goes on to say, “this Pyongyang-bred heartthrob is every woman’s dream come true.”

Reports are saying People’s Daily could not be reached for comments concerning their confusion. They probably think Kim Jong Un is just like Justin Bieber, making the girls cry and scream. Only this lady-killer from North Korea really makes them cry and scream.
