There is nothing funny about the plight of China’s high tech workers. Employees who make iPhones and other tech devices for exportation overseas work long hours in difficult conditions with little compensation. Times reporter Dan Levin’s article, “The Demanding Off-Hour Escapes of China’s High-Tech Workers,” explores how these workers deal with their stresses and blow off steam. Not a particularly humorous subject, really.

And yet!

Levin’s article opens with a description — noticed by an editor at Think Progress — that perfectly mimics one of “Saturday Night Live” character Stefon’s famous night club reviews:

“The hottest nightclub in this factory town is a neon-encrusted dive down the road from the industrial park where iPhones are made 24 hours a day. Tucked behind an open construction site, “Through the Summer,” as the nightspot is known, had it all on a recent Saturday night — plastic whistles, fruit plates, a toddler with a mohawk, counterfeit light sabers and a bawdy comedian who imbibed beer through his nose.”

We’re not sure if The New York Times was in on the joke (probs not, considering they believe women wear dresses is a wild breaking trend), or even if Dan Levin knew what he was doing, but either way, bravo! [New York Times via Huffington Post]
