And While We're Talking About Sexy Science...

From today's Independent:

"A respected research institute wanted Chinese classical texts to adorn its journal, something beautiful and elegant, to illustrate a special report on China. Instead, it got a racy flyer extolling the lusty details of stripping housewives in a brothel."

The text in question was used as cover art for the journal of the Max Planck Institute, the "Hot Housewives in action!" special. More here.

I particularly liked the aside about those unsuspecting people who are walking around with tattooed Chinese characters that look stylish but actually read, "This is one ugly foreigner".
