Swedish lesbian-only town? Gullible much?

I love this. It seems that Sweden has been forced to announce that a women-only town populated with lesbians does not exist on Swedish soil after a number of news outlets in China covered the fictitious town.

Xinhua and Harbin News news agencies claimed that Chako Paul City was built in the forests of northern Sweden back in 1820. Nice to see the women managed to find a way to reproduce without any men to, er, help (thanks for the disturbing alternative suggestions KT).

The Telegraph reports that the strange story may have been the result of a translation mix up but whatever happened to create this gaff it’s definitely my favourite fictional town of the year!
