Haha! Hahaha!

The Chinese, I've been told, are real jokesters. They love to laugh. I bet they even laugh about misfortune - especially considering how much misfortune they've had to face. Serious stuff, like facing starvation for the good of their government, and having no potable water for hundreds of miles around. And having their neighborhoods razed for little compensation to make way for high-rises. And facing dangerous working conditions in factories and mines. And being imprisoned and tortured for writing literature that used to be pro-Communist, but is not considered so anymore.

I, however, am an American. We Americans are not as versatile with the ol' funnybone.

But I'll give it a try.




Nope. Still moping.

Wo bu shi Zhongguoren, bu gaoxing. Wo shi Meiguoren. Zhe shi bu hao.
