Just Say Mao

I sure hope when I’ve been dead for 30 years I can still get a massive erection.

The Chinese authorities say they are putting up a huge statue of Chairman Mao Zedong in Tibet.

The 35-ton memorial is being built to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the former leader’s death.

It is being erected in Gonggar County, near the Tibetan capital Lhasa, China’s state-run news agency Xinhua said.

The statue will rise 7m from a 5m pedestal strengthened to withstand earthquakes. Mao Zedong ordered the Chinese takeover of Tibet in 1950.

The statue will be the central landmark of Gonggar County’s Shangcha square, which covers about 40,000 sq metres, and is scheduled for completion in July.

According to the Beijing authorities, the statue of Mao Zedong will be the largest of its kind in China and the first in Tibet.

Now, if the Taliban want to blow up this statue, I won’t lose any sleep over it.
