Oh China

Found this article in the “International News” section of a publication in China. It’s an article about how fat school children are in American schools.

Only at the very bottom of the article do you see the disclaimer that this article was taken from the Onion, a joke newspaper in the the US. Otherwise, its published as if its total fact.

    Highlight:
    “As she recalled the round, jowly young faces she sees whenever she looks up from her desk, the veteran educator identified several students as especially rotund. In particular, Pomponio noted a 7-year-old named Keegan who reportedly has to wedge himself into his chair each morning, with a portion of his stomach bulging over the top of his desk.”
