BEIJING THIRD-MOST POLLUTED CITY IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD
If you're Australian like me, you'll be secretly proud of the fact that of the world's 10 most deadly snakes, seven of them come from our country. God we're hard.
But here's a seven-out-of-10 fact for China to hang its hat on:
|Ride for your lives!|
Beijing residents try to flee the city's choking smog
But for now, the smog's gone - blown on the wind like so much fine particulate matter ...
|The scene from The Tiger Father's window today.|
|... I exaggerated a bit. This is what it really looked like|
See? Just a bit of pollution in the distance. That's why
we love wind.
JILIN ICE FESTIVAL FUN:
|Right. We've built this ice wall. So what do we do now?|
Better get the roosters!
Since they're still alive, the best thing to do is hang
them up like this.
|That looks about right. OK - ready ... set ...|
Yet another apparent rendition of Jesus' Life With Fowl has been played out in Guangzhou in southern China. Again showing no respect for coop life was the man you'll see shortly, who lists his occupation as 'performance artist'.
What he's done is strap himself up, as if like Christ on a crucifix, except the Romans didn't attach roasted chickens from his wrists and loins. There's also no record of Jesus having a cute second-year art student leave hickeys all over his body, like this guy.
(WARNING: The following photos will definitely disturb many readers.)
His name is Kang Yi, and he put on this performance to criticise modern attitudes to love that seek only pleasure without taking responsibility. Obviously. Hence the chickens.
The woman was identified only as Miss Liu. She had to be brought in from Hunan province, most likely because not many girls in Guangzhou were sticking their hand up to kiss this man all over his body, with people seeing.
|You would, wouldn't you?|
Chinasmack.com reports the performance ended only 90 minutes into its scheduled 2-1/2 hours. This was possibly because Kang had by then started to feel "a bit stupid".The performance climaxed when the muse, after planting a couple of hundred love bites on Mr Kang, threw three buckets of cold water over him.
This is performance artist and confirmed
weirdo Zhang Huan, carrying out his
1994 work 12 Square Metres. To
highlight the state of China's public
lavatories, and of course for the sake
of art, Zhang coated himself in fish
juice and honey, then sat naked in
one such God-forsaken place for an
hour, letting flies coat his body.
He died hours later, aged 23.
No, he survived. But noone has had
sex with him since.
