Beijing paper falls for gag in 'The Onion'

Beijing paper falls for gag in American tabloid

Quote:
BEIJING, June 7 (Reuters) - Beijing's most popular newspaper has unwittingly republished a bogus story about U.S. Congress threats to skip town for Memphis or Charlotte unless Washington builds them a new Capitol building with a retractable dome.

The source? America's celebrated spoof tabloid, the Onion.

A retractable dome would be nice!
