If you live to 100, what do you want at your funeral?

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!!!

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank. http://www.jozjozjoz.com
