News has just come in about what could possibly be the world’s worst zoo which just opened in a blaze of publicity in Yulin City in China’s southern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
The special opening event which advertised a display of extremely rare penguins from the South Pole attracted huge crowds.
However visitors were less than impressed when they discovered that the so-called “penguin exhibit” consisted of nothing more than a dozen plastic inflatable penguins.
To add their anger, it subsequently emerged that the only live animals to see at the zoo were chickens, ducks and a tortoise, which was placed in a glass display box and named a “fortune tortoise” with the idea that people would through money at it for good luck.
From another corner of China comes news of just how far a commuter was prepared to go in order to get a seat on a packed train.
He threw himself on the floor and pretended to have a fit.
Intriguingly rather than springing to his aid his fellow passengers, who didn’t know he was faking, and horrified by the image of the shaking man on the train floor, took off in all directions, leaving a row of empty seats.
Immediately the man got up and smiling broadly, took one of the now vacant seats.
Perhaps I should give that a try!
See you again tomorrow,
