Ungrateful wretches

Check out this article about the conviction of four men who opposed the Communist Party published in the online version of the official communist newspaper of Vietnam. If you're worried they got off easy, never fear:

"The 33 year-in-prison punishment, for the four defendants, is suitable and justice has been served to the Party, Nation, and People."

In addition, there are articles of interest regarding "Activities of the Party and State," "Vietnam in foreigners' eyes," and the friendly "About Us" section. I don't know why I find sentences like this so amusing:

"State President Nguyen Minh Triet asked the VFF to concentrate on diversifying forms of mobilisation so as to rally the entire people into various movements to strengthen the country and make it more prosperous."

It reminds me of when the Onion did their parody of a Chinese takeover at the paper.

Pa. Woman Manages to Crash Car Into Her Own Home

I love the above headline because there's just a touch of the AP being like "Jeez, lady, look what you managed to do now." Much better than simply "Pa. Woman Crashes Car Into Her Own Home."
Of course Orthodox Jews have different bath towels for meat and dairy!

Most TV Shows Named In One Minute Replacing One Word In Title With "Horse"

This may be the greatest contest every thunk up. The contestant must name as many television shows as possible in one minute replace a word with "horse." As in "The Gilmore Horses," "Dawson's Horse," "Golden Horses" and "Three's A Horse." You can only name one one-word television show (as in "Horse" for "Seinfeld"). Here Kumail Nanjiani named 17 shows in one minute. This is the world's funnest record database that I never heard of before.

Who says the Onion isn't hardcore anymore? (Did anyone say that? Not sure.)

It's sort of sick that I take pleasure even in spam comments.
