Taiwan robbers seem to be seriously weak; at least Apple animated news make it look that way.

Two armed robbers robbing a jewelry shop are met with fierce resistance from two siblings. In this fight for survival, the siblings win over the bad guys. In the end, one of the robbers is shot in the thigh and the other dies from a heart attack.

The reason why I call these robbers weak is that the manner in which the robbery was conducted was just way too amateurish (and dumb). The robbers came with the intent to kill the storekeeper (the sister) but the gun jammed on the first shot and the second shot did not kill her. On the third attempt, the brother (who they did not notice) came to his sister’s rescue. The sister also joined in the fight despite being shot.

While the siblings were definitely very brave and tough, the robbers really could have succeeded without much stress. The brother wouldn’t have attacked if he didn’t see his sister in danger.

There really was no reason to kill innocent people in this robbery, and the robbers paid the price.

Yes, the title for this post sounds so dumb that you would think it’s a title for a porno.

Funny that this shit is real and, once again, from the cute island of Taiwan.

Worthy of the title “The dumbest mom ever”, a Taiwanese mother forces her daughter to have sex with a man to help exorcise evil.

The mother only got suspicious and called the police when the exorcist asked for 2 million Taiwan dollars (66,890 USD).

Check the video out for more details…

Not really sure how to explain such a story. It is definitely a WTF times two.

So in Henan province there is this cross-dressing 17 year old boy that came up with a plan, with two of his friends, to make some money. The plan was to get married to a mentally retarded man and then leave with the bride price. I guess this boy must really look like a girl to begin with. I couldn’t stop laughing, already, at this point in the story.

Now this is where the story gets really bizarre: at the night of the wedding, the uncle of the groom (presumably the person mainly responsible for taking care of him) intervenes. Turns out the uncle is one sick bastard and probably wanted this young “maiden” to himself, with the whole marriage as a foil for him to keep a sex pet. So he gets the retard to leave and then proceeds to rape the “bride”.

By now this cross-dresser realizes that he is not the only one with a twisted mind and flees. However, he gets caught by the villagers who rip his (I’m getting confused) clothes off to find that “she” is a he.

In the end, both sides sue each other. This I find incredibly hilarious cause you know what is going to happen – both go to jail. I can’t believe they actually went to court for this. What kind of justice were they expecting to be served?

After all this, I think it’s a shame they never became a family; those two are a match in heaven.

Here’s the video (with subtitles):

An English teacher in Kunming asks her student the meaning of “up to you” in Chinese. In an epic translations fail or probably the most genius intentional mistake ever, the student says “上你“. “上你” literally means “up yours” in English.

Normally, this would just be your funny afternoon in class but the teacher was not very pleased. The female teacher, who took the boy’s response too personally, became infuriated and decided to give the boy a good beating.

This may be a shock to most of those who still believe China to be a cruel and backwards country, but physical punishment for students was banned long ago.

The parents of this boy were equally infuriated; complained to to the school board who decided to suspend the teacher. Now other parents aren’t please and want the teacher back.

So those who think China is still old-fashioned, you are not entirely wrong – at least some parents are.

I personally despise teachers who resort to beating a child. If you can’t teach without physical punishment, you probably don’t have the skills to teach.

They say Taiwanese boys are very romantic. This is mainly attributed to the pop culture of cheesy teen romance drama on TV.
(Wikipedia has a good entry on Taiwanese Drama)

Keen to please their girlfriend, Taiwanese boys put a lot of effort to create that extreme romantic feel, similar to that seen on TV.

This boy though, takes romantic to a whole new level of retard. Feeling very confident in his charming skills, he books a hotel room and spells “Happy Birthday” using candles.

The problem is that he puts the candles on the bed, and then he leaves the room to pick his girlfriend up.

You can probably guess what happens next…

What are your views on circumcision? Is it really better to be circumcised? Or is it just plain wrong?

A math teacher in Taiwan thought it would be appropriate to spend 17 minutes in class discussing such issues. He even shared a few stories of his own…

But enough explaining; watch the video! A video is worth a million words.

Once again, brilliant work from the folks at Apple Action News.

The best thing is they added English captions so I don’t even have to translate it.

ninja-vs-panda

Since the escalation in tension between China and Japan over the Diaoyu Islands, there have been strong conflicting views depending on nationality. It seems to me that we are still far from settling cultural differences and that there is still far too much rubbish, fed by mainstream media and the education system, burying facts.

However, Taiwan’s NextMedia has a hilarious yet pretty honest take on the whole situation…

Their conclusion: How much longer can two economically interrelated countries continue this struggle? (As the ninja tries to kill the panda with a firework made in China)

A woman in Taiwan was caught cheating with a co-worker by her husband. The suspicious husband planted a recorder in her car.

This is made very entertaining when animated…

I am surprised to find out that you can go to jail for cheating in Taiwan.
