Looking for stuff about China’s Golden Shield Project, normally associated with censorship on the Chinese web, I found this startling bit of irony. I’ve blurred the picture so as not to offend anybody, but you can visit the actual page at 51gongwen.com (caveat emptor, NSFW!), or 51 Documents. This is ironically hilarious because the websites menus include “patriotic speeches” and “anti-corruption campaign”, and the article is titled “Discussion Materials From the PSB Golden Shield Project and Population Management System Building Conference” where an official talks about how the PSB in his city is implementing IT solutions to fight crime, both online and off. Above it, however, is an advertisement for a Chinese website called fuckdiy.net which sells sex aids and toys. The ad depicts a womans buttocks with, um, one of those toys being used. At the bottom is a list of other government speeches and documents, first one being on Hu Jintao’s Eight Honors and Eight Shames. Hilarious.

Oh My God! this is hilarious indeed. also because of the full-size pop-up, advertising an “SM electroshock orgasm machine and waterspray”-kit and “wireless electronic nipple pincers” among others…
What the hell?! 🙂
When they said “purify” they meant “except for pictures of women being rear-ended by electro-dildoes”. That is nothing more than advertising with Chinese characteristics, and you’re a churl for thinking anything else.
@Will: You’re so right. And actually, now that you mention it, it makes sense for the phrase “______ with Chinese characteristics” to mean “with something up its butt.”
