America gets irony - China plays catch-up

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The Onion has always been proof that the US does indeed get irony (well, some of them at least), but this story really does make you smile : BBC News - China paper carries Onion Kim Jong-un 'heart-throb' spoof
    The Chinese need to brush up on humour I think. Mind you, they live in a dangerous place where subversive humour is concerned!
     
  2. I do. You can blame my exposure to "allegedly" illegal downloads of Top Gear and the amount of Brit colleagues at my first job for that - I was maybe one of the 5 Americans working in a department of about 20. Yes, it was a U.S. subsidiary of a UK company. :)
