Q: Have you picked up your free Russian bride yet?

https://www.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/2168283/chinese-pranksters-offer-beautiful-russian-brides-single-men

 

Probably the best prank I have ever known in China.

 

Kudos to the fellows that pulled it off, but now the repercussions bite you in the ass.

After reading this I thought of another issue. Chinese men don't want to marry girls smarter than they are. As an ESL teacher in High schools I have notice most of the girls trump the boys on exams. That spells an additional problem for the guys trying to get married, These guys who can't make it past Gao Koa will be stuck on the farm without  wife for the remainder of their lives.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
