Top 4 Jokes on SARS
AFAR
5/27/2003

As SARS becomes rampant in Beijing and other parts of China, Chinese people, however, amuse themselves with new political jokes on it while resisting this dreadful virus. Here are top 4 jokes on SARS:

#4. SARS has controlled all that the Mother Party (aka, the CCP) has failed to.

The Mother Party failed to control dining extravagantly (using public money). SARS has.

The Mother Party failed to control touring with public money. SARS has.

The Mother Party failed to control holding a sea of meetings. SARS has.

The Mother Party failed to control deceiving one’s superiors and deluding one’s subordinates. SARS has.

The Mother Party failed to control the business of prostitution. SARS has.


#3. Beijing’s four “more”

1. More people are drinking herbal medicine than morning tea.
2. More people have a fever (and then became quarantined) than have complaints.
3. More people are breaking out in a cold sweat just from hearing coughing and sneezing than are shivering with fear for encountering robbery.
4. More people are wearing facemasks than breast masks (bras).

#2. A few ways that SARS causes death

Stifled to death from wearing facemasks
Poisoned to death from drinking herbal medicine
Scared to death from learning of a colleague’s infection
Depressed to death from the avoidance of relatives’ and friends’ after their business trip to an epidemic area
Treated to death for an erroneous diagnosis
Cursed to death for spreading rumors
Beaten to death for sneezing in a public place

#1. SARS’ “three represents”

It represents the development trend of the viruses of a special kind.
It represents the orientation of a terror culture.
It represents the fundamental interests of the overwhelming majority of wildlife animals.

Note:
The CCP’s “three represents” (supposedly by Jiang Zemin):
It represents the development trend of China's advanced productive forces.
It represents the orientation of China's advanced culture.
