Strippers Attending Funerals In China Is Being Frowned Upon By The Chinese Government

National Post
The practice of hiring funeral strippers in rural China faces tighter curbs after the government announced cash rewards for people who report them to a special hotline.
The ministry of culture said it was targeting “striptease” and other “obscene, pornographic, and vulgar performances” at funerals, weddings and traditional new year public gatherings.
Authorities started clamping down on the practice in 2006 and began a second campaign in 2015. The latest is focused on 19 cities in the provinces of Henan, Anhui, Jiangsu and Hebei, the ministry said on its website, which also gave the hotline number.
Communities in rural China reportedly believe such shows enourage bigger attendances at funerals in order to honour the dead and bring them good fortune. The media has blamed it on increasing materialism as the country opens up to the West, while experts say the shows pay tribute to fertility.
The Global Times reported that rural households were showing off their disposable incomes by hiring “actors, singers, comedians, and – most recently, strippers – to comfort the bereaved and entertain the mourners”.

Man let me share a personal story with y’all. When my family first came to America it was my dad, uncle, and aunties, all 7 of them, with my Grandma and Grandpa all cramped into a small one bed room apartment in the small outskirts in Chinatown, New York City. One day some low life scum bag took a pipe and hit my grandpa in the back of the head damaging his brain. Guy was never able to form memories for long. Growing up he was a quiet guy, never really spoke, just got angry and went for his daily walks around town to get a milk tea and sit at home with out making a noise. Fast Forward to a few years ago he passed away and it came time for his funeral. I was blown away. The amount of people that came to give their condolences was mind blowing because I figured only a handful of family members would come. Didn’t think he had friends because he never spoke after that day he was attacked. They all remembered him as one of Chinatowns first accountant I think? Either way a couple hundred people came and went. It was a surprise and heart warming moment to see them all come pay their respects.

Now that being said……

Hypothetically, lets say if this was a thing. If I knew Chinese chicks were around back of the funeral home grinding their asses on peoples dicks, I don’t think I would mind. It’s an emotional time people! It would be one of those things where the family hosting the funeral probably know, but you know what? It’s just nice to hear nice things people have to say about loved ones that passed. Its also nice to have a girl with a nice ass whispering sweet nothings in your ear. I mean if there was a black sheep family member at a funeral you know he doesn’t really have nice things to say and you know its a conflicted past, but the wife of the deceased probably appreciated him just being there. Probably feels some what the same way when the town gas station attendant comes to mourn the loss in sweat pants and one dollar bills sticking out his pocket. It’s such a genius business idea too. From the words of the great Chazz Reinhold “grief is nature’s most powerful aphrodisiac.”

P.s- “The media has blamed it on increasing materialism as the country opens up to the West,” Yo China, unless I’ve been lied too, I’ve been to A number of funerals and we’re not the ones telling the farming communities in China to have strippers at Funerals.

P.P.S- Besides Milk tea and being quiet to turning into the Hulk in 5 seconds, the only other thing I know for a fact about my Grandpa was he loved Sunkist. When he would stay with us in Florida, he would walk a mile for a can of Sunkist.

A Man In China Quit His Job And Spent 22,000 Building A Transformers Like Statue For His Son

A shipyard welder in eastern China gave up his job to fulfil a promise to his son and build a robot replica based on the Transformers action movies. Standing 5m high and 3m wide, the dazzling yellow version of “Bumblebee Autobot”, character in the film, towers over onlookers in Wang Liansheng’s backyard in Suqian, Jiangsu province. It all started when Wang told his two-year-old son that he would make a model for him because he couldn’t afford to buy one after they watched the latest Transformers movie last July, Thepaper.cn reported. His son took his words to heart, and Wang realised he had to keep his promise. “As a father, I can’t just say something and not do it,” Wang said. He gave up his job and spent 140,000 yuan (HK$170,000) on his pet project. In a year, he scoured enough old car parts and other scrap metal across the city to assemble the robot. Wang says it was the worth the effort, especially when his son proudly tells people: “My father made this.” He next plans to make a model of the Transformers character Optimus Prime, and maybe try to make a business out of it.

Im sure this is kind of cliche at this point but back then I always wanted my dad to build us a tree house. We had tons of land growing up. Loved to play outside, and had tons of trees so naturally we wanted a tree house. My dad never made that tree house for us. Said he was thinking about it but never did. You know why? Because he kept his job so we didn’t have to live like a poor person 24/7.

I get it, its something a father did for his son so they can both be proud of each other, blah blah blah. Its nice I get that. But in the same way i don’t hate and resent my dad for not building a tree house, this kids not gonna hate his dad if he didn’t build a useless model statue of a bootleg Bumblebee. I mean i don’t know how the math or logic works where you don’t have the money to buy a toy, but instead spend all your hong kong dollars to build one that cost exorbitantly more than a toy, and just build a knock off version. I mean it doesnt even have the Autobots symbol for christ sakes. That shit might have some play over there where knock offs thrive and you’re young and can show it off but once you’re in your teens and poor because dad doesn’t have a job because no one wants to buy massive knock off transformer statues, then its just gonna be a 5 meter high robot statue telling you to your face that your poor.

P.s- this is what bumble be actually looks like. A for effort, C+ in execution. But then again i dont know if they have Camaros over there in china so ill give it a B-
