“Calling the current U.S. Capitol “inadequate and obsolete,” Congress will relocate to Charlotte or Memphis if its demands for a new, state-of-the-art facility are not met, leaders announced Monday.”

Sound far-fetched? Well, this was reported by the Beijing Evening News on June 3.

According to a Reuters article, what really happened was that the Chinese daily fell for a May 29th article in the Onion. I guess it’s understandable though; these days I’d rather read “America’s Finest News Source” than most of the other stuff on the newsstand. ^_^
