I heard on the radio a couple days ago, that it's impossible to phone out of
N. Korea, or to get internet that is from outside the country. Yes, it's
that repressive. Wonder how someone found out about the Onion's story?
In any case, glad they liked the story.

BEIJING - The online version of China's Communist Party newspaper has
hailed a report by The Onion naming North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as
the "Sexiest Man Alive" _ apparently unaware it is satire.
The People's Daily ran a 55-page photo spread on its website Tuesday in a
tribute to the round-faced leader, under the headline "North Korea's top
leader named The Onion's Sexiest Man Alive for 2012."
Quoting The Onion's spoof report, the Chinese newspaper wrote, `'With his
devastatingly handsome, round face, his boyish charm, and his strong,
sturdy frame, this Pyongyang-bred heartthrob is every woman's dream come
"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," the
People's Daily cited The Onion as saying.
The photos the People's Daily selected include Kim on horseback squinting
into the light and Kim waving toward a military parade. In other photos, he
is wearing sunglasses and smiling, or touring a facility with his wife.
