I guess one Taiwanese man who lived to 103 got what he wanted… a stripper at his funeral.
Son Honors Dad’s Wish, Hires Stripper for Taiwan Funeral
Tuesday, March 25, 2008
A man hired a stripper to perform at the funeral of his father — who happened to have a fondness for gentlemen’s clubs, according to reports from Taiwan.
Taiwanese newspaper the United Daily News reported that Cai Jinlai had been promised a stripper for his funeral if he lived to 100.
Jinlai was 103 when he died — reportedly leaving behind more than 100 “descendants.”
He had died after walking about 3.1 miles to a town in Taichung County to vote in an election in the Taichung.
His son, Cai Ruigong, told the newspaper that he had paid more than $170 for the stripper to dance around the coffin at the funeral.
“He would travel around the island with his friends to see these [strip] shows,” Ruigong said.
According to reports, the exotic dancer performance at the funeral lasted 10 minutes.
I think it’s an interesting juxtaposition that the man died while walking 3+ miles to VOTE in the elections. Oh those Taiwanese people… crazy about voting!!!
