Deep thoughts, May 5, 2008
With help from an old edition of Lonely Planet's guide to Taiwan
From a pre-JoSamBro edition of Lonely Planet's guide to Taiwan
Since people in Taiwan sometimes smile out of embarrassment, could the focus by Max Hirsch and others on Vice Premier Chiou I-jen's (邱義仁) smiling be some kind of a distraction?
From Max Hirsch's post on the Thirsty Ghosts blog
(and shouldn't that caption read "May 4"?)
And was the use of that photo Max's own idea?
A Chinese-language Google News search for "Chiou" and "smile/laugh"
(No, it doesn't necessarily mean that Chiou isn't happy, but c'mon -- use your brain and try to figure out why the semi-homophonic habitual liar Chiu Yi [邱毅, Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT)] is acting like he knows so much about this Papua New Guinea fund scandal)
