Chinese newspaper falls for The Onion's Kim Jong Un story

We've all seen the horribly funny instances of people believing that Onion headlines are real but this is something else.

People's Daily, a Communist newspaper in China, foolishly took The Onion's recent story on Kim Jong Un being named the sexiest man of the year as stone cold truth.

Alongside a sexy slideshow of 55 images, the site also reprinted much of The Onion's original piece , including these golden nuggets:

"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."

Words fail us. Mainly because we're laughing too hard.
