Oh god: we’re not really sure how this is newsworthy, but apparently Nanfang Daily decided that a bunch of pictures of drunken foreign girls awkwardly passed out was good enough to at least make into a photo gallery. The pictures were taken from popular BBS site Huanqiu: we couldn’t find the original post, though we did find pictures of another netizen getting a duck drunk, which are funny, and somehow more disturbing.
Nanfang Daily readers didn’t seem to like this post too much: all the comments on the gallery are pretty angry with their decision to make this into news by putting it on their website. They’re just outraged rather than outrageous in the way we’ve come to know and love our Chinese netizens’ commentary. Beyond the multiple “lost face” and “you should have some standards for your news” posts, the funniest they get are “Foreigners, so open, how are they at all like China? Not only is this good, but China should strive to follow America!”, and “They look like Russian girls”.
We would love to see some awkward pictures from drunk people around China. Actually, no, we take that back: American college students have a monopoly on drunkenly embarrassing photos, and we’re fine with letting them keep it.
