ET.COM'S BEST OF THE INTERNET FOR 2009 – PART SEVEN

Welcome to the seventh part of our series that features what we here at ET.com found to be entertaining stuff on the Internet.

During the summer, popular humour web site The Onion announced it had been sold off to a Chinese company. Specifically, it had been sold to Yu Wan Mei Amalgamated Salvage Fisheries and Polymer Injection Group. The web site for the company listed it’s phone number as 1-877-YU-IS-FISH, which if you speak Cantonese is fairly amusing.

What followed on the Onion web site was a slew of humourous articles and videos that suddenly either dealt with the faltering of the United States as a nation or the emerging strength of China as a superpower.

Consider the video below entitled “Police Still Searching For Missing Productive, Obedient Woman”.

If that wasn’t entertaining enough for you, why don’t you have a listen to the Chinese Andy Rooney? If articles are your thing, we recommend “Potato-Faced Youngster Lauded For Memorizing Primitive 26-Character Alphabet“. A direct quote from the article is:

“Christopher Pierson, a glassy-eyed, slothful lump of a child who still watches cartoons despite being tall enough to reach a polymer-injection molding station, was endlessly praised Monday for recalling the scant 26 letters in the American alphabet.”

We here at ET.com were thoroughly entertained by the entire list of China-themed Onion offerings.

Stay tuned for part eight as we countdown the best of the Internet for 2009!
