    Below is a translation of a joke that is currently being circulated widely on Sina Weibo and other Chinese social networks:


    There is a village that only has one restaurant. Everyone in the village has to eat at that restaurant. 


    Villager:
    Why can’t we have more than one restaurant?

    Waiter: Our village is in a stage of development where more than one restaurant can lead to chaos, so we only have one restaurant. 



    Villager:
    But the food here is really not good!

    Waiter: Our restaurant has only been developing for a short time. Even if the food tasted worse than this, at least it’s our own food! 



    Villager:
    But can’t it be a little cheaper?

    Waiter: That would not suit the conditions of our village; the restaurant also needs to develop.


    Villager:
    But the employees of the restaurant are all driving Mercedes Benz cars!
    Waiter: To ensure fair and uncorrupt staff, you need to pay them high salaries.



    Villager:
    But last year, you lent all the profits of the restaurant to another village.

    Waiter: This is the village policy, you don’t need to worry about it. 



    Villager:
    I heard that the guy in charge of purchasing took all the money for buying vegetables and ran away to another village. 

    Waiter: That type of employee is very rare. 



    Villager:
    What about that time when we found sand inside the steamed buns? 

    Waiter: Don’t worry, we have already fired that chef, he didn’t have the right qualifications. 



    Villager:
    So when we’ve got so many problems, why do you still hang up certificates of high quality? Why do you tell oursiders that everyone is eating so well? 

    Waiter: For whose interests are you speaking? What a waste that the village has raised you!


    Villager:
    The grain was grown by the peasant farmers, the restaurant was built by the workers, and the chef is one of us common people. 

    Waiter: Look at M village taking advantage of L village! M Village is really hegemonistic.


    Villager:
    I can’t even get a decent meal, what do these other things have to do with me? Why don’t other villages have all these problems we have here? 

    Waiter: Whenever you talk about yourself, you can only say only bad things, when you talk about others, you say everything is good. You village traitor!


    Original Chinese text

    有一个村子只开一个饭店,所有人都必须去那家饭店吃饭。
    村民:为什么不引进更多的饭店呢?
    小二:我村处于发展阶段,多饭店容易乱不适合我们,所以我们要一饭店制。

    村民:但是这菜太难吃了啊!
    小二:我们饭店才发展多少年啊,在怎么不好也是我们自己的饭店啊。

    村民:但是能不能便宜点啊!
    小二:这个不符合我们村情,饭店也要发展。

    村民:但是饭店的管家都开上奔驰了。
    小二:这是高薪养廉。

    村民:但是去年你把饭店盈利的钱都借给别的村了啊。
    小二:这是个村策,你不需要关心。

    村民:听说上个采购员拿买菜的钱跑别的村去了。
    小二:那样的员工只是少数的。

    村民:上次的包子里有沙子怎么回事啊?
    小二:放心,已经把那个没证的厨师赶走了。

    村民:那为什么出这么多问题,还要挂上优质称号呢?还对外称人人都吃的很满意。
    小二:你是帮谁说话?饭店白养你了!

    村民:粮食是农民种的,饭店是工人盖的,厨师也是我们小民出身的。
    小二:你看现在M村正在欺负L村呢。M村真霸道。

    村民:我现在连饭都吃不好,这些事和我有什么关系啊,那为什么别村的饭店就没这么多问题呢?
    小二:一说自己村就是什么都不好,一说别的村就什么都好。你个卖村贼!!

    This line of argument somehow seems so familiar.

    Now where did I experience such a manner of obfuscation and deceit?

    A Dissertation Upon Roast Pig by Charles Lamb
    Lamb (1775-1834) was an English essayist. Reprinted here is the first part of his essay, the part which tells the story of the discovery of roast pork.

    I find the whole thing very amusing.

    However, it does show that the Chinese are smelling the coffee and not mere xxx as is projected by the world!
