I often reflect that maybe I live in the wrong country. Britain is a great place, but sometimes we are a little 'stiff'.

Now it seems that China likes to give their stiffs a final stiff as it were as apparently the practise of employing strippers at funerals has been growing....

Apparently local tradition suggests bigger attendances at send-offs bring good fortune to the spirits of the dead. So what better way to bring a crowd than to bring in the strippers?

But complaints after state television exposed the practice at a funeral in Donghai county, Jiangsu province, have forced the authorities to act, according to Xinhua news agency.

And Government Mandarins (get it?!) are cracking down on this 'obscene practise'.

Now back here in Britain at funerals all you get is a curled up sandwich and some stewed tea in my experience, at least, in a funny way, the Chinese practise celebrates life...

Well I'm Chinese but not from or live in China. I take funerals pretty seriously. As much as I'd like to celebrate life, stippers at funerals are disrespectful.

To be honest Sassybelle I don't think it's a common practise; I must admit I never heard of it when I lived out in East Asia, although luckily I never went to a funeral just a couple of weddings.... (definitely no strippers there either!)
