Reader James Weir noticed something peculiar when he image searched “China” on Google.ca, i.e. Canadian Google: “People Eating Babies” and “People Eating Dogs” were among the top results.
In an ideal world where no one falls for Internet tricks, this would go without saying, but people do not eat babies here, in the same way that people don’t in the US or the UK or Japan or anywhere else in the world. If you choose to believe what’s in the news, you might find capsules of powdered human flesh, but cannibalism as a cultural practice in our day and age is basically extinct, isolated to some island tribes.
So, in conclusion: what the hell, Canada? Google?
Here’s what a normal image search of China should yield:
And once again, Canada.
