(WHAS 11)--A major newspaper in China fooled by western satire.
The US based comedy website "The Onion" voted North Korean leader Kim Jong Un the Sexiest Man Alive for 2012 earlier this month.
The Onion wrote "with his devastatingly handsome, round face, his boyish charm, and his strong, sturdy frame, this heartthrob is every woman's dream come true."
But China's communist party newspaper took The Spoof of People Magazine's annual 'Sexiest Man Alive' Award, seriously.
The People's Daily Online ran a large spread on the North Korean leader Tuesday.
The website has since pulled the story.
