In-DUH-viduals at Funerals

Ok, here’s one to illustrate cultural differences for you.  How many of you would consider hiring strippers for dear old dad’s funeral? 

Yet there is a crackdown in China on this very practice.  Apparently, the more people who show up for the funeral, the bigger the honor to the dead person.  In an effort to attract attendees, it seems that some families have been hiring entire troupes of “entertainers”. 

Seems to me that it would be just as easy to hand out the money you used to hire the strippers…
