Chimerica Today: Chinese Officials Have Had Enough of Being Photoshopped into Porn Pics

Posted by on Thu, Mar 28, 2013 at 10:21 AM

Daily Dot reports:

A plague is striking Chinese officials in the southeastern county of Shuangfeng. One by one their photographs are being nabbed from government websites, their faces cut out and then pasted into pornographic movie stills—explicit Photoshop mashups that would surely horrify the morality of any good Communist.

The Chinese Photoshop masters share the photographs with their victims, along with a threat: pay up, or we'll post these all over the Internet.

But how can you tell if it's really real or really fake? What if some of those pictures are the real deal? How can we be sure?

Usually, you can tell if it's shopped from some of the pixels, especially if you've seen quite a few shops in your time.

Actually, this is the best thing that could have happened. Now, nobody will believe the threats. Chinses officials use only government approved whores anyway. I think it's o.k. there if your wife approves.

The officials in this country that are the jerks who fire a school teacher for having a former career as a porn actress.

Sneaky.. http://observers.france24.com/content/20… "Some online commentators have wondered if this new billboard campaign could have another, more subtle purpose: getting the public to think that all photos of officials involved in apparent sex scandals are fakes. Indeed, China has been rocked by a series of such scandals, ranging from orgies to sex tapes involving mistresses – no Photoshop involved."

Or, Chinese government officials have created a hoax to prevent real pornographic pictures from being taken seriously. Now the Chinese people will just think it is a fake...

How is that for paranoid?

The catchy slogan from the billboard reminds me of this bit from the April 1977 Mother Jones:
The biggest hit record in China these days is a song attacking Chiang Ching, Mao's widow [now written Jiang Qing], entitled "Indignantly Condemn the Wang-Chang-Chiang-Yao Gang of Four."
