Lies do catch up — even with floating government officials

The latest meme out of China is the “Levitating Government officials.”

Seems after a new road was built in Huili, the actual pictures of the government officials inspecting the road did not look pretty enough, so a worker for the local government used PhotoShop (likely a bootleg version) to “fix” the problem.

The problem got worse as the government officials appeared to be floating on the road and people noticed.

I looked at the photo and I almost coughed out half a liter of blood! Even a rank amateur like myself can tell that this was a PhotoShop job…

And the obvious nature of the poor job led other Chinese to place the government officials into other situations.

Bottom line: There is nothing like truth and accuracy because eventually the lies will be found out and will bite you in the ass.

Many thanks to Boing Boing for pointing this out.
