The Power of Chinese Bloggers

 

A group of Chinese travelers in Egypt saw Chinese writing carved on a statue in the ancient Luxor Temple, it says: " Ding jinhao was here."

Chinese tourists tried to wipe it off with tissue paper, but to no avail. Some of them took photos and put on a blog:"We are so ashamed, how can one just carve things on such precious 3500 years old relics?" The news was quickly spread by thousands of bloggers, and the culprit was found in just over 24 hours. Ding jinhao, a high school student in Nanjing province. Chinese demanded the student and his parents apologize....

The parents of Ding jinhao contacted the Chinese media, and passed on their apology: "This is a bad act of (our) child, but as parents we should bear the main blame as we did not guide him properly, we did no give him proper teaching (in manners), We (my wife and I) and our child apologize to the Egyptian authorities; we also apologize to all the people in our country who take this matter seriously. I beg everyone's pardon for my child's wrong action, and I beg everyone to give this child a chance to act right in the future. "

(According to ancient Chinese custom, parents usually bear the main responsibility for their children's behaviour.)

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.”
