Q: Whats the point of the big mops?

Mop and bucket, invented in Spain. Useful, and abundant in the west. Even in China you can find them at your local store and in any city. But here in China they also have the big mops. Mops that look like military issue, designed to last a life time or Something from an old Godzilla film. I've seen them everywhere, from restaurants to schools. What is purpose of these mops? These mops that don't have a bucket. They are useless for cleaning and actually swamp the floor. Another blast of ancient Chinese, stuck in the past, culture or is there something I'm missing?

I think they are multi use, for spit or piss and so need to be huge and plentiful.

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
