The Situation Is Excellent: The Week That Was At Beijing Cream

February 11 – February 17

Happy Year of the Snake. During the CCTV Spring Festival Gala, Lu Chen made a funny joke, only to have it censored out of proceeding reruns. A toddler pooped in the aisle of an airplane, and netizens still hate Fang Binxing.

Olympian Sun Yang was disciplined by his athletics school. Hong Kong is considering converting shipping crates into living units. Fireworks! The kind that blows up Mazdas are bad; the kind that blows up people is even worse.

Protesters in Shanxi town beg for mayor to stay. Video of a 19-car pileup happening in real time is actually pretty funny. Donnie Does China visits, again, the Shark Tank.

Spring Festival foreign acts: PSYCeline Dion, the Backstreet Boys, Sarah Brightman. Meanwhile: Katy Perry vs. Li Bingbing.

Comment of the Week:

Brendan, on Look Which Fat Ass Made A Public Appearance:

He is the very model of a Mao-born major general.

Honorable mention, same post: Blah:

Not cool to make personal attacks. Regardless of how ineffective or has-been the person in case is, the title “Fat ass” and tone is just wrong and horrible. It’s a shame, I thought Beijingcream was classier and wittier than this. I’ll be unsubscribing soon and letting my friends know.
