We’ve been waiting for this. Caption: “Xi Jinping, Li Keqiang, Zhang Dejiang, Yu Zhengsheng, Liu Yunshan, Wang Qishan, Zhang Gaoli, who have been elected members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), arrive to meet with Chinese and foreign journalists at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, capital of China, Nov. 15, 2012.

Xi Jinping is the one in the very middle. He led the others on stage:
Looking good, boys. Except you there, without the red tie. WTF, man?
That fucker in the blue tie. Must be a Sino-version of Horst Buchholz, the only one of the Hollywood Seven to come from farming stock.
I hope you know your bootleg movies, Mon General.
Now, if it was Toshiro Mifume, he would have mooned the lot.
Are you with me on these references?
I’ve found the real picture of the new standing committee, unlike the one above that is heavily edited by Xinhua.
Here it is! http://imgur.com/1nj1k
