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.”
