January 28 – February 3
We spoof the Beijinger’s covers. The WCBA finals kicked off with a bang. PSY will be performing in Shanghai for Chinese New Year, writes James Tiscione (also: watch this Gangnam Style flipbook). Meanwhile, Didier Drogba is leaving Shanghai (or trying).
A Guangzhou sinkhole devoured buildings. Dartz is selling a million-dollar vehicle, and it’s kinda (but not) a tank. Blogger Zhu Ruifeng got harassed by police for exposing government officials. Hong Kong is serious about protecting its powdered milk supplies. A foreigner streaked through Beijing’s airport, while a toddler pooped in Taiwan’s airport.
Comment of the Week:
“Typical BeijingCream Commenter” on our the Beijinger spoof:
Is this supposed to be funny? Because I honestly can’t find any fucking humor in this at all. In fact I haven’t laughed once since 1989. Hopefully the CCPC will come to their senses and apologize for those terrible crimes. Read my book, Staring Down Tanks: The Only Real Man In China, to learn more about what happened that day. Besides that, excuse me while I go wipe my ass with something else readable.
My god, the next student from ISB that I encounter I am punching in the fucking face.
