No, Chinese officials are not talking to the world’s smallest woman.
The gentlemen from the Civil Affairs Bureau in Ningguo, Anhui province, are paying her a visit as part of China’s Elderly Day. The photo was published on the bureau’s website.
According to an official explanation reported by Offbeat China, there was reportedly not enough room in the woman’s apartment to fit everyone into the frame so two separate photographs were merged together. The image has gone viral on the Chinese Internet, where it has been met with the derision it deserves.
