"Which female artiste would you most like to sexually assault?"

I mean, seriously. WTF?


Hosts of a chat show on a Hong Kong radio station apologized Tuesday for an Internet survey asking its listeners to vote which actress they would most like to sexually assault…
"The program hosts and co-workers publicly apologize for any offence that the Internet poll 'Which female artiste would you most like to sexually assault' caused to female artistes and everyone in Hong Kong," a message posted on the radio Web site said.
The hosts also promised to be more careful in selecting the content of its shows in future.
No matter how many outrageous things I read like this, it never ceases to amaze me that there's anyone left on earth who thinks something like that could be funny, or in any way not completely and utterly fucking offensive. The mind boggles.
