There's a very famous publicity picture of Chairman Mao Zedong smiling and holding a Chinese baby. My high school social studies teacher for Global Studies I, Mrs. Tracy, was completely infatuated with China. We spent months learning about the Five Year Plan, the 10,000 Yuan Farmer and all that jazz, and only a few days talking about the entire rest of the world--and I'm not even kidding. She claimed just about whenever it got brought up that she was the baby in Mao's arms in that picture, and no one could tell if she was joking or not. She was also quite insane, though, so I doubt it.
