First ever April Fools-themed newspaper in China? [Copy link] 中文

Rank: 4

Post time 2011-4-1 11:22:44 |Display all floors
Some Chinese friend just sent me this photo -- apparently a page from a piece of weather-beaten newspaper. China Youth Daily, or so I was told.

Said this is the very first time that any Chinese newspaper has devoted a whole page to "prank news" on April Fools' Day.

End result: the chief editor got sacked...

Where is the humor? Chinese officials and the whole bureaucracy always appear so serious.
