Jesus is good, beef noodles are good, and so is money

« previous post | next post »

From a Twitter account:

The four big characters say:

yǒu qián zhēn hǎo


It's really good to have money

Above the large, red characters is a list of dishes served by the establishment.  They are mostly one or another kind of beef noodles.

The notice under the DIY inside the red star asks customers to clean up themselves after eating because the shop is shorthanded.

The visual semiotic content on the wall is just as powerful, if not more so, as the verbal content of the signs.

    Hill Gates sent me a photo of a restaurant that she took in Shanxi. The name of the restaurant was:

    Shèhuì zhǔyì hào jiǔdiàn 社会主义好酒店 ("'Socialism is good' restaurant")

    Hill comments: Food wasn't bad, but I had no time to survey the diners about their political proclivities.
