Friday Humor: Overcompensating In China

Tyler Durden's picture

China may or may not be building empty cities any more, but when it comes to the buildings it does, ahem, erect, it appears that the communist regime is either running out of ideas or is taking the symbolism of the skyscraper just a little too seriously. Behold the building that will house the new Beijing offices of the People's Daily, the official paper of the China Communist Party...

In the perfectly chosen words of the NYDN, after thinking long and hard, the mouthpiece for China's Communist Party was cocksure that the erection of a new headquarters would be warmly received — but they blew it.

More, more, more:

The new building for the People's Daily newspaper, still under construction, has attracted more attention online for its suggestive shape than sound engineering...."


Internet users came up with jokes about the phallic structure. Others rose to the occasion by juxtaposing shots of the new building with another Beijing landmark, the China Central Television headquarters, which is nicknamed the “Underpants Building”  and has a large opening.


The one thing we don't understand, however, is how did Donald Trump not think of, and erect, this building first?

Trump was just waiting for these to get built before erecting a giant douche.

There is a long elevator shaft that transports hot chinesemen in the commercial erection.

The State Bank of Vietnam is so unpredictable! Looks like the dong has reached peak inflation. I might have to cover my short dong exposure now.

...After a long hard day of erecting such a structure, the workers in the purple helmets rode the elevator shaft down and headed firmly home.

If you rub it hard it becomes the tallest building in the world... And milky waterfall.

Located in Long Dong province, the new "headquarters of the Peoples Daily newspaper" is clearly a high-tech barracks for the Red Star Navy and full of seamen.....

So little appreciation for cultural diversity....

It's an affirmative action thang.  Now King Kong can play choke the chicken like everyone else.

Going Long Dong is an absolute boner. It inflates like crazy.

Few people know this, but there are actually a lot of hidden references to the XAU/Dong currency pair in the third film in the series, which indeed derives its name from there.
