Is That a Chinese Smile?- China Pic

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 5, 2011

Here is a photo from the chinadaily. In it is a friendly neighborhood member of China’s ruling communist party, and some other guy. I would guess that the photo is supposed to show tear and glad tidings, but imho it looks like the two are about ready to scrap , as in fighting for control of the torch. Is it just me or when the do the members of China’s ruling communist party seem ill at ease while smiling…
