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