There is one glaring reality….no one gets out of life alive. Yep, believe it or not we all must die.
When we do we will have some sort of service or a memorial or whatever you would like to call it when family and friends get together and remember your life……..Cjhina has a way to go out that I had not thought about……a stripper!
Chinese officials are launching a campaign in some rural areas to crack down on stripteases and other lewd shows that have become popular at … funerals. The Ministry of Culture said yesterday that it will tighten control over rural culture, where vulgar performances have been thriving because of a general lack of cultural events. Such erotic performances at funerals are a relatively new phenomenon. Many rural people believe that a large attendance at funerals is a sign of honor for the deceased, and the shows are used to attract more people and display the family’s prosperity. The funerals also are a rare occasion for crowds to gather as villagers working as migrant workers in industrial centers return home to bury the deceased.
Performances of traditional opera were once popular at funerals, followed later by movie screenings. In the last several months, people who have returned to their rural homes for funerals have complained on social media about lewd shows, remarking that troupes hired to play dirges suddenly changed their tune and began to peel off their clothes, even with children in attendance. The ministry cited a performance by six strippers at a funeral in the northern province of Hebei and a lewd show by three performers at a funeral in the eastern province of Jiangsu. Those responsible for vulgar acts will be punished, it said. “Such illegal operations have disrupted local entertainment markets and corrupted social mores,” the ministry said.
There is an idea to consider……..if I must go then let it be with a stripper!
Enjoy your weekend!
