There is a whole lot more of them where this one came from. They probably wanted a girl and just want to try again.

That's a crate way to transport zombie take-out.

not that it makes it much better... but thats not a moped. it's a stripped down electric "scooter"...so his top speed there is probably 10-15 mph.

"The image has sparked outrage on social networking sites"
Boo...
Hoo..

When did "social networking sites" supplant balanced points of view. Most users of "social networking sites" couldn't be trusted with a stunned turnip. What does their "outrage" have to do with the story?

Also... take-out entrepreneur of the year :D

There is no balanced point of view in China. All forms of news media in China is censored with the regular person on the street has little to no say with what goes on. While the Chinese government does try to censor what is posted on social networking sites, its control is obviously a lot slower and after the fact. As such, posting on social networking sites has become the one real outlet where the public says pretty much anything, political or otherwise. They often can openly complain about things (although there has been some risk). And these forums has become quite lively and a very good measure of what is on the public's mind.

In the past, rather serious criticisms of the government have come up, which in the end either resulted in a crackdown to the critics or surprisingly enough a measured response from Beijing to said criticism. This is more a social observation, but often there is debate on things like the influence of foreigners, or the breakdown of their traditional culture, or other things. Much like the west of course, but its more important to the Chinese as they really have no say or influence on other media outlets.

As such, outside foreign media that day-to-day observes China (like say Hong Kong newspapers), or even China's own media, do take notice when there is posted story on social networking and it is followed by a lot of commentators. It's a real easy way to gauge what a lot of Chinese are talking about around their water coolers.

There's a basket attached to the front of the bike. Hogtie the kid and stuff it in there.
 
2012-06-21 10:53:11 AM  
I would have thought that was fun as a kid.
 
2012-06-21 11:09:07 AM  
There are many tags for this...I don't think amusing was one of them.
 
2012-06-21 11:10:50 AM  
If only there was a flat area on the back of the bike to which the crate could be tied down with some sort of rope...

I am much more offended by this caption:

Crate wall of China:

Ever been to China (or Southeast Asia)? That is indeed a moped. See http://www.tvsmotor.in/xl-hd.asp.

No, the back part of the bike would make the carton hang over by one inch and there's no way you could use rope or something to attach it. The best bet is to drag them on the ground and pretend you don't like 'crack-the-whip'.

"Chinaman" is not the proper nomenclature. It's "Asian American" . Also, he should have put wheels on the bottom of the crate so that-OVER THE LINE!

China - like America before lawyers were allowed to advertise.

Plastic box?

You were lucky. We were dragged around for three months in a paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six in the morning, clean the paper bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down t' mill, fourteen hours a day, week-in week-out, for sixpence a week, and when we got home our Dad would thrash us to sleep wi' his belt.

I was taught to always cut a hole in the box.
