Typical Shanghai Car (Expat humour)

Written by Julen Madariaga on September 30th, 2009


A middle aged man in a dark suit left this car. He didn’t look in the least embarrassed. Was he a pedophile? A cadre under the influence, bringing it home to sweetie? Or just the resigned father of a normal Shanghai girl?

I didn’t stop to ask. But I appreciated the customized kitty steering wheel, rear-view mirror and head-rest. And the heap of slain and skinned pink cats stuffed inside the back window for further upholstery use.

    This shouldn’t come as a surprise. For centuries these sissy Shanghai men have being dutifully washing their wives underwears every day.

    Don’t tell me that you don’t know that, ULN.

    I did not know that, I must admit. My acquaintance with Shanghai wives’ underwear is not so intimate, regrettably. But I am pleased to hear that those important and delicate garments are well taken care of.
