A hunka hunka burnin' North Korean love

The People's Daily have somehow read The Onion literally. And, barely containing their excitement that a Western media outlet named Kim Jong-Un the Sexiest Man Alive, went off and produced a celebratory 55-PAGE photo slideshow of him. The link is here

Here's the text:

U.S. website The Onion has named North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un as the "Sexiest Man Alive for the year 2012".

"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," it said.

"He has that rare ability to somehow be completely adorable and completely macho at the same time," said Marissa Blake-Zweiber, editor of The Onion Style and Entertainment.

And better yet, the photos

On a horse, no less. Why, he's practically Vladimir Putin!

Oooh. Inspecting machinery. Hot, hot, hot.
