The Return of Stickman #1158

I hate American news media. Here the Chinese have done something fantastic, they've entered the space race. And the only thing the U.S. can find in way of response in the news outlets? They ate some dog. Most new outlets didn't mention the fermented rice soup, the spicy pig skin, or the other really yummy foods they had on the trip. (Don't knock fermented rice soup if you haven't had it.) The media was working the Asian stereotype angle so hard on this story I'm surprised nobody used the headline: "It's not Tang!" Hooray for the Chinese! Kudos to them for getting into space. And thank you American news media for once again making the citizens of our country look like a bunch of nimrods.
