Dophin sightseeing

« previous post | next post »

Headline in the China Daily today (5/28/17):

"Dophin sightseeing in China's Taiwan".

As my colleague, Arthur Waldron, trenchantly remarked:  "They fear a dauphin. This may be an omen."

    Arthur also asked, "What passport?" and "No interception?"

    Caveat lector: Malwarebytes reports at least two suspicious sites linked from that page.

    Women show off the beauty of Chinese qipao.

    As opposed to the French qipao?

    That 'node' of China Daily's site brackets together HK Macao Taiwan.

    Since Taiwan/ROC continues to claim to be the only legitimate government for the whole of China, perhaps we should refer to Taiwan's Hong Kong, Taiwan's Fujian, Taiwan's Beijing.

    @AntC: The cases aren't parallel. No one claims Hong Kong, Fujian, or Beijing is part of Taiwan.

    If the spelling error were corrected, this would still be a crash blossom: is it a story about dolphins sightseeing or about humans sightseers looking for dolphins?
