China acts on funeral strippers

Okay, interesting news from China. Apparently it's quite common in some areas to have strippers at a funeral.

Nope, This is not a joke. Apparently, local belief is that the more people attend your funeral, the more you are honoured. Get some hot young things taking off their clothes, and people will attend. Seems logical, right?

Well, that's not the news. Lately, the Chinese authorities have been cracking down on what they call "obscene performances" (yeah, now why does that sound familiar?) and have banned them.

In a sadly usual non-twist, authorities are also encouraging people to snitch on their neighbours and have set up a hotline to allow them to do so with ease.

Because, as we all know, consenting adults watching consenting adults taking their clothes off is the single worst thing that can happen to a person.
