Xinhua looks into Homer Simpson's brain

Homer and Xinhua
Xinhua has published a serious report about new research into the causes of the debilitating disease multiple sclerosis (MS).

European and American researchers have just discovered that people who carry two particular genes have a much greater chance of developing the disease.

On Xinhua's English website, the article is illustrated with an image of an X-ray photo of Homer Simpson's brain.

Comments on Xinhua looks into Homer Simpson's brain

I dunno man. Homer has done some serious partying over the 10 seasons...
All those TRIPS must have taken a heavy toll upon our beloved yellow man. I'm serious! Plus, the fact that Homer works at a nuclear power plant doesn't help either.

"That's some good reporting, Lou!"

"D'oh! Bart... I'm so popular in China."

I laughed when I first saw this, but the more that I think about it, the more ridiculous it seems. The editorial processes in the Xinhua newsroom are seriously broken if something like this can make it onto the Website -- and not be corrected for days.

See my commentary here.

THAT is Pirating. :P People musta asked Fox to give them a 3d sketch of homers brain, and/or stole it!
