Joking About the Anti-Japanese Government

I haven’t been on my Weibo (Chinese version of Twitter) lately but greatly appreciate http://www.shanghaiist.com for pointing out this joke making its rounds on the web. In case you don’t know what this is referring to please read my conveniently provided post

Said the (Chinese) government official to his secretary, “What Japanese products do I have on me? Run a check.” The secretary reported, “Check complete. Not a single item. Your car is from Germany, your watch is from Switzerland, your clothes are from France, your mobile phone is Apple, your child is in the United States, your property is in Australia, and your bank account is in Hong Kong. And your mistresses — they’re all made in China.”

“Great,” said the official, “Then let’s unite the people and let’s all boycott Japanese products!”

领导让秘书査:“我身边有什么日货,要主动自查。”秘书汇报:“查了,一件都没有。你的车是德国的,表是瑞士的,衣服是法国的,手机是苹果的,你的孩子在美国,你的房子在澳洲,你的帐号在香港。还有你喜欢的那几个小姐,都是国产的。”领导放心:“那就全民一心,抵制日货吧!”

I’m glad there are some free thinking cynics left who will question the way things are.
