Forget about stuffing The Deceased and placing him astride the Harley for the Long Ride Into the Great Beyond.
Apparently The Chinese have taken The Sendoff to Ancestorland to a whole new level and the Big Commies in Beijing are not amused:
China has launched its latest crackdown against a phenomenon which just won’t seem to die in rural areas – funeral strippers.
The Ministry of Culture said last month that it was targeting “striptease” and other “obscene, pornographic, and vulgar performances” at funerals, weddings and traditional Chinese New Year public gatherings.
The war on strippers at funerals has been a long one for China.
Some communities in rural China reportedly believe that bigger attendances at funerals help to honour the dead and bring them good fortune.
If you ever wondered why the corpse was also called a stiff now you know.
Please excuse me while I toddle off to update the will…
