Happy endings: watch China’s banned funeral strippers honour the dead (photos)

“Show me the stiff,” say the funeral strippers hired to dancer at funeral in China. “We”ll let you know if he’s really dead.” In parts of China and Taiwan, respect for the dead and the quality of the deceased’s afterlife is measured in what crowd the corpse can attract. And if a few naked dancers can add to the throng, so much the better.

It is the ultimate happy ending.

But not everyone approves of turning on the turned off. The Wall Street Journal says China is looking to ban the shows. One stripping ensemble were rounded up and jailed for 15 days. The women were charged with “corrupting the social atmosphere” and each fined $11,300.
