LOLWUT!!!

People who use lolwut and multiple exclamation marks are either twatwits or wannabe wind-up merchants. But when I read the following widely circulated quote I had an epileptic LOLWUT!!! moment.

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said on Thursday that “China’s Internet is open”.

And I am Marie of Romania.

It must be said though that Little Miss “pants are on fire” is rather fetching, in that buttoned-up and stern-looking Chinese way

liar

A shame then that her fair face doth hide what the false heart doth know.

The question is, if she tells such huge lies so brazenly won’t she lose face? She has lost the trust of anyone who knows anything about the internet, that’s for sure.

No no no. She can’t be serious. It would just be too stupid, too embarassing. In modern 21st century China, even the lumbering old CCP has progressed past that level of inanity and/or shamelessness. Yes, I can see now that her quote was a sneaky postmodern humorous allusion to the crassness of the bad old days of Cultural Revolution propaganda. If you look at her carefully, she’s definitely smirking. ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOLTWAT
