A Chinese TV station has become a laughing stock after reporting villagers had dug up a mysterious ‘mushroom’ with ‘lips’ and a hole at one end, and a smaller hole at the other – which eagle-eyed (more worldly wise) viewers readily identified as a sex toy, featuring artificial vagina and anus.
The TV Producers later issued . . . a public apology for the broadcast –
Hi everyone, one of our news reports which aired last night has made everyone laugh. This incident has been widely followed, shared and commented on. As our reporter was still very young and unwise to the ways of the world, this report has brought great inconvenience to everyone. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for your criticism and correction. Please forgive our oversight!
