The top comments talking about China’s first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, are hilarious. From the Yahoo article about the carrier anchored in the northern port in Qingdao:
-On Wed. nights the galley features all you can eat American food………
-”The Chinese purchased this ship, in response to a really bad Kung Foo movie, that was posted on U-tube (that the President disproves of) and we will throw the movie maker in jail, on trumped up charges” (USA State Dept official statement)
-I heard they bought it off of craigslist.
-And the President is discussing his options, with his main security expert ( Oprah) this very minute……
-”Permanent base” don’t you mean “dealership” ?
(radio ad spot) “Those pesky Americans and Israelis got you down, Abdul ? Got a few trillion barrels of oil burning a hole in your pocket? Common down to Honest Wang’s Happy day Aircraft carrier, and ballistic missile emporium, where “terrorist” are treated like family, and democracy is a “dirty word” ……call to arrange YOUR test drive, today!”
-Batteries not included.
-I hear that you can rent it for parties, weddings, or third world wars!
-it has a sweet ramp for making jumps
-Qingdao (青岛）is also a pretty good beer. It is written on the label as Tsing tao. Well worth a try.
-Don’t they know its bad luck to rename a ship.
How ironic, even they did not want anything “Made In China”.
-Qingdao?… Good beer…
Qingdao (青岛) is both the carrier’s name and beer name? Kind of like the USS Coors?
