Red Song Turned Green?

The news of Bo Xilai being 'sacked' by Beijing was released on 15th March, and Chongqing officials setup this green board in the famous Chongqing square saying: no one is allowed to dance and sing in this park at anytime, due to noise that may affect public health and good rest.

The central park of Chongqing was one of the main spots where people were ordered by Bo Xilai to sing and dance red (Maoist) songs since March last year. People have gathered that to watch song and dance every night since last year.

One blogger says: Only last week, TV news reported a teacher sang a red song that reduced her cancer pain, now we are forced not to sing.

Another blogger: we citizens were suddenly forced to sing, now suddenly forced not to sing; When will we able to have a proper ticket and vote for ourselves, and to decide what we want to do?

China Uncensored   

On Nov 14th, Gambia cut diplomatic ties with Taiwan.  On 15th Nov. the communist mouth piece, China Daily, quoted the spokesperson for the Chinese foreign ministry, Mr. Hong Lei declaring (in the screenshot above): China (Chinese regime) has acquired news (Gambia cutting diplomatic ties with Taiwan) from foreign media. China did not contact Gambia before Gambia’s decision.

Chinese bloggers found this statement extremely amusing, as it corresponds to the classic Chinese folk story:

A man named Zhang San earned 300 taels of silver from hard work and he was happy and tried to hide his silver. He thought carefully and buried his silver at the back of his house. Still unable to put his mind at ease, he placed a sign above which read, “There are no three hundred taels of silver buried here.” His neighbour, Wang Er saw what Zhang did and later at night, he dug up the silver and put another sign there: “Neighbour Wang Er didn't steal the silver.”
