A Chinese man has been arrested after hiring two strippers for his son's wedding reception, which didn't sit well with fellow villagers.
Zhang Cheng from Xuzhou, Jiangsu province, had originally planned to hire a band for his son's special day, before changing his mind. Why? Well, according to the Global Times, Cheng was informed that the strippers would have "special features".
The newspaper added: "After watching the show, Zhang decided it would be appropriate for his son's wedding and requested two strippers for the event.
"Barely five minutes had passed before hundreds of villagers in the conservative community were swarming to the venue, trying to catch a glimpse."
While I'm not entirely sure why the villagers would have reported the incident if they were trying to "catch a glimpse", I can report that Cheng was arrested the following day, although the charge remains unclear.
According to Financial Times blogger Ranjit Lall, "Jiangsu has been China’s largest recipient of foreign direct investment for the last four years." I don't know about you, but I'm starting to wonder what all the money's being spent on.
