Welcome to another fascinating installment of China Daily’s The Week. A quick note before we get into the skinny of things, there will be no episode next week as we, like the rest of China are on vacation during the National Day holiday. Also, our director Jack Sun is still injured, we wish him a speedy recovery.

I'm too sexy for…
A 21-year-old nursing student in Quebec Canada was arrested for burglary and illegal weapons the possession. Sounds simple enough except the young woman has shot to internet stardom after photos of her went online. The internet has deemed Stephanie Beaudoin to be very very sexy, lifting her up from regular crook to the ranks of Jeremy Meeks, people who may be too pretty for prison. The young lady is currently awaiting trial for her crimes, who knows if there will be cameras at the scene.

All hail the…Worms?
We all know that humans spend a long time staring at smart phones, but who would've figured that frogs would too! In an internet video, someone left what looks like an iPhone on the ground in front of some frogs. On the iPhone was a video of worms moving around. The frogs became fixated with the video, some even lunged at the screen hoping to snag up a delicious meal!

Big head little brain
It's that time of year again when university students have to take mandatory military prep. While it sounds normal and fine, the military training in Anhui University has drawn the ire of both netizens and the People's Liberation Army. No, it's not the training itself that has created controversy but rather the schools president Shi Xiuhe. During a training session, Shi had the student's line up while he drove on by in a top down Audi convertible. While Shi's actions seem innocuous, he's actually creating a big faux-pas. He's not a general, and doing some kind of review like is usually held by the President of the country. Not only that, he was riding in a foreign made car!
