Unlikely to be seen in NZ

Rebecca Kamm writes in the Herald:

 Nonetheless, it might be a relief to a few of you that ladies really can get a sweet bargain out there if they play their cards right. Like in Southern China, where women get half-price entry into the Guilin Merryland Resort fun park if they wear a mini-skirt shorter than 38 centimetres.

The discount scheme is a marketing campaign called “Love Miniskirt” and will run for two months. Local television showed female visitors in miniskirts queuing at the park’s entrance as staff measured their skirts with rulers. Also, staff had to break the news to women in short shorts and dresses that ONLY MINISKIRTS SORRY.

I may be wrong, but I suspect the park ended up with more revenue, due to a higher than normal number of male patrons attending.

Li Wenxing, deputy manager of the park, told Shanghai Dailythat “The stipulation aims to encourage female visitors to showcase their beauty in summer.” He also said that “Love Miniskirt”, which has been running every year since 2007, really gets the punters into the park. Which, incidentally, holds a “water splashing festival” at the same time – and throwing water at mini-skirted women is very much a part of that.

Sounds almost as much fun as La Tomatima!

It’s not the first time a Chinese event has drawn in the women with fruity discounts. Last year, virgins were offered free entry into the Zhouluo Wild Osmanthus Fragrans Festival in Changsha, which celebrates the osmanthus fragrans, or tea olive (and compares it to a “pure and simple female”). The virgins had to be at least 22 years old – and who knows how anyone was supposed to know that they’d never done it – but there you go.

I doubt you could do such a festival in Huntly.

    Cue outraged homophobic Christians who are against premarital sex yet are perfectly fine with adultery and think this will result in more abortions which could be prevented with contraception which they are also against in 3, 2, 1…

    David Farrar! Are you suggesting there are no virtuous women – in the old sense of that term – over 22 in Huntly? Now why would you think that I wonder?

    Everyone of age on a domestic purpose benefit.

    Having seen some of our south Auckland heavies in mini skirts it should be discouraged. Not to mention some of the wannabens with the crotch of their pants down by their knees.

    Free entry to virgins in miniskirts next year perhaps.
    Farrar we suspect You will still have to pay even if you do wear a miniskirt based on questionable virtue.

    Only if our womenfolk are rather dour, feminist-infested creatures who’ve been taught subconsciously to hate men since birth DPF and IMO, they’re not like that at all!

    I went to this years Harbin (Northern China) Beer festival where the theme was “Passionate Romantic Nights, A Festival of Drunken Beauty”…..This Municipal Govt supported event (another thing that wouldn’t happen in NZ) was huge. I couldn’t see any of our Councils or Govt supporting 12 (brilliant) days of drunken debauchery.

    Many of us atheists don’t hate Jesus. I think he was a guy who did a lot of good things for his people.

    What went wrong was when Paul started to have hallucinations in the desert (either through shortage of water or mental illness) and decided to deify Jesus – who was a bloody good bloke and a hero of his time, but nothing more than that.
