spielberg meets chinese

joke time muna: this is from a friend's email sent to me this morning. i had nothing to post so for the mean time, joke time muna. here it goes...

One Chinese guy walks into a bar in America late one night and he saw Steven Spielberg. As he was a great fan of his movies, he rushes over to him, and asks for his autograph.

Instead, Spielberg gives him a slap and says "You Chinese people bombed our Pearl Harbor, get out of here."The astonished Chinese man replied "It was not the Chinese who bombed your Pearl Harbor , it was the Japanese"."Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, you're all the same," replied Spielberg.

In return, the Chinese gives Spielberg a slap and says "You sank the Titanic; my forefathers were on that ship."Shocked, Spielberg replies "It was the iceberg that sank the ship, not me."The Chinese replies, "Iceberg, Spielberg, Carlsberg, you're all the same."

This particular joke won an award for the best joke in a competition in Britain.

serious time: meanwhile film-maker steven spielberg may quit as artistic director of the beijing olympics unless china takes a tougher stance against sudan, reports ABC news. this is related to the darfu conflict, a genocide (racial extermination) incident in Sudan. since china is a major investor in Sudan's oil industry, they are now criticised for not sending UN peacekeepers to the country's troubled Darfur region.

here's the film-maker statement on the conflict, he wrote (to the chinese president Hu Jintao in May): “I add my voice to those who ask that China change its policy toward Sudan and pressure the Sudanese government to accept the entrance of United Nations peacekeepers to protect the victims of genocide in Darfur.”

my sympathy to mr. spielberg if you really help dalfur instead of supporting china's olympic PR campaign. take an action now.
