Someone feels like a right Planck

Seriously, this journal is in my To Read pile but I never seem to get round to picking it up. Honest.
However, some of that respect has been tarnished now that it transpires that the high-brow science publication MaxPlanckForschung (translation: Phwoooarr Look At The Big Brains On That) had, on its latest cover a seemingly innocuous piece of Chinese poetry which later turned out to be an advert for a brothel.
Real translation:

With high salaries, we have cordially invited for an extended series of matinées
KK and Jiamei as directors, who will personally lead jade-like girls in the spring of youth,
Beauties from the north who have a distinguished air of elegance and allure,
Young housewives having figures that will turn you on;
Their enchanting and coquettish performance will begin within the next few days.

Even so, that's kind of classy.
