Crotch-less Pants, Butt Heads and China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 25, 2012


Here is an oldie but a goodie.
This China man is taking his future disappointment out for a stroll, on his shoulders. In civilization this would not be a problem, but this is China.
In China they do not burden the kids with things that are not part and parcel of the Chinese culture or the four great Chinese inventions: xenophobia, cowardice, sloth and corruption
As such, they disdain conventions like diapers. After all, in a country that has been around since the solar system was a speck, they do know better.
So in China, the kids do not wear diapers, it’s much easier to have them walk bare-assed and shit where they may.
This guy has his kid, crotch-less pants and all, on his shoulders.

I just wonder if he’ll wash out the scat from the collar, or merely wear it again, consider it a fashion statement…
