Happy Year of the Pig

Welcome to the Year of the Pig. May this year bring healthy back-ups and good fortune….

If you were born in 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, or 2007 here is your personality forcast:

People born in the Year of the Pig are chivalrous and gallant. Whatever they do, they do with all their strength. For Boar Year people, there is no left or right and there is no retreat. They have tremendous fortitude and great honesty. They don’t make many friends but they make them for life, and anyone having a Boar Year friend is fortunate for they are extremely loyal. They don’t talk much but have a great thirst for knowledge. They study a great deal and are generally well informed. Boar people are quick tempered, yet they hate arguments and quarreling. They are kind to their loved ones. No matter how bad problems seem to be, Boar people try to work them out, honestly if sometimes impulsively. They are most compatible with Rabbits and Sheep.

I am still slowly rebuilding files and will spend my evening like mlillons of Chinese watching CCT’s annual gala…So, the New Year has to be better, right???? There will be no Dick Clark, no Times Square and maybe no pigs:

PIG

Reprinted from the lost archives….

First, they dumped the Friendlies (HERE) because some professor thought someone might read it as “friend lies”. Then, the government gave serious thought to extinguishing the dragon (HERE) as a national symbol because it looked too fierce. NOW, they want to bans pig from Year of the Pig TV advertisements!!! The move, apparently, was made by a party propaganda official Li Changchun who is probably related to the moron who trashed the friendlies. The move is meant to avoid offending China’s 21 million member Muslim population. Seems odd doesn’t it? Jail ‘em, register and appoint their clergy for them, but don’t tease them with p-o-r-k forbidden to them by Islamic law.

So, how are the Buddhists, who think that the animals were chosen after Buddha himself summoned them all to a meeting in which he would designate the first 12 animals as rep’s, going to feel?

Who woulda thunk it? China attempting political correctness….

This has big implications:

You are going to have to muzzle the dog as the government has now outlawed eating dog to improve China’s culinary image prior to the Olympics; and of course the donkey will have to go to keep from offending politicos from the States; the chicken will remain roosted to deflect criticism for the prostitution trade here as women “sex care providers” are called Chickens and the men are called Duck; the snake will get caged for reminding Christians of original sin and the Ox will head for a Hindi barn….

Maybe they could use fruit (don’t EVEN go there…) or vegetables….

 

Lots of stuff yet to be added….PLease be patient…
