Mu Mu's secret message

Yesterday, the New York times featured a story on Mu Mu, self-described "party-girl" and author of China's most popular blog. The 25-year-old goes on to say, "I don't know if I can be counted as a successful Web cam dance girl," that early post continued. "But I'm sure that looking around the world, if I am not the one with the highest diploma, I am definitely the dance babe who reads the most and thinks the deepest, and I'm most likely the only party member among them." Go Mu Mu -- that's what the blogosphere is saying. Given China's notorious reputation vis a vis human rights, Mu Mu seems like a breath of fresh air. . . . Or is she? Scientific image analysis reveals that Mu Mu may be yet another Communist Party apparatchik, a tool of PRC President Hu Jintao. Let's take a closer look. So far so good. We have a young, nicely filled-out lady in standard issue Communist brown pyjama tops, Beijing Beauty Sports Bra™, and freshly washed and bleached Party Panties™. Through a series of advanced steganographic techniques, including (but not limited to) Mankowicz depixellation and Rombergian delossification, we at Shatter have discovered that the image released to the New York Times has been modified by inverse digital watermarking. Subsequent Fourier transformation analysis of Mu Mu's panties reveals the following cryptic message (plainly visible to Communist China's horny blog-surfing males, but hidden in the jpeg image released to the Western press): Not only do we have a not-so subliminal message, but we discover that Mu Mu's image has been tamed down for Western eyes. For shame! I can't believe I just wasted an hour on this. If you're as disappointed by this morning's blog as I am, take a look at playwright Jim Sherman's version of Hu's On First. D.

Doug, I am SO glad you procrastinated on your NaNo book so you could bring us this blogworthy information instead. You at shatter have a nice weekend.

Curious that the message is in English rather than Mandarin.
