Fake fake buns maybe not fake after all?
Link to blog posting at Shanghaiist
Despite some pretty damning arguments regarding the plausibility of blending cardboard and caustic soda into baozi, steamed pork buns, the internets are chattering again: Government conspiracy and cover-up! The fake buns being fake is itself fake!If it isn't polluted fish and rodent overpopulation, then it's a long list of food safety issues almost daily from China. It is all very frightening and seemingly out of control.
It's a bit like unpicking the speech of an 8-year-old who has just discovered double-negatives-- It's not not Opposite Day, not!-- but we'll do our best.
