In the last week, I have become utterly obsessed with www.chinadaily.com.cn. China Daily is the English-language newspaper run by the Chinese government and has become my Daily Candy for news of the weird. Take, for example, this headline from today’s “NEWSMAKER” section:
“CROSS-TALK STAR CRISS-CROSSED WITH SHAME AND FAME”
Huh?!? What the f- does that mean? Here’s clarification from the story itself:
“Guo Degang, a Xiangsheng (cross-talk or comic dialogue) phenom last year for his original and innovative approach to the traditional art form, has been widely talked over again in the past few days, not about his FAME as an artist, but the SHAME as the image representative of a SUB-PAR WEIGHT-LOSING PRODUCT.”
