Since capitalism has had it’s claws in China, China has slowly begun to descend into a cultural quagmire. What type of quagmire, you wonder? Let’s have a read of the latest ‘you can’t possibly be kidding me news events…’
AN EIGHT-year-old boy was chained to a lamppost by his impoverished father and auctioned off to the highest bidder.
Yong Tsui tried to entice passers-by into making an offer with assurances that his son, Fai, was a hard worker, The Daily Mail reports.
Because if you make assurances that the little rascal is a slouch and still wets his pants you know he’d still be tied to that lampost…
However, the auction came to a violent end after onlookers heard bidders asking how little they would have to feed the boy.
Several people attacked Mr Yong, with one putting him in a headlock until the police arrived.
Mr Yong told officers in Wuhan, central China, that his wife had died three years ago and that he could no longer afford to take care of the boy.
Such it seems are the adventures in mainland adventure. But just in case you thought that was a one affair, we’ll give you some more to ponder about:
Child abduction and child slavery is rife in China.
Last week police in Wuhan freed two naked girls who had been locked in a basement for almost a year.
They were rescued after a repairman found a note they had managed to smuggle out in a broken television.
Mainland China? Shouldn’t it be a place you and your children should flock to ?
