Something's wrong with this ad - the wonderful world of expat magazines

First, City Weekend redesigned its website. It was a long time coming, but it still looks like a cheap travel/tour website as opposed to a place for locals to get meaningful information. Not surprisingly, most of the listings under "events" are just glorified ads for travel companies advertising for "Tibet Travel Discount" and "Miao Lusheng Festival Tour."

Second, this ad on the Beijinger caught my eye:

Upon closer inspection...

Yes, that says Whether the images on that site are actually SFW -- safe for work -- depends entirely on where you work.
