Top fake news of 2008
http://www.danwei.org/front_page_of_the ... e_news.php



Bring in the wine!

Let your cups never rest!

Let me sing you a song! Let your ears attend!

What are bell and drum, rare dishes and treasure?

Let me be forever drunk and never come to reason!

Sober men of olden days and sages are forgotten,
And only the great drinkers are famous for all time.

... Prince Chen paid at a banquet in the Palace of Perfection
Ten thousand coins for a cask of wine, with many a laugh and quip.

Why say, my host, that your money is gone?

Go and buy wine and we'll drink it together!

My flower-dappled horse, My furs worth a thousand,
Hand them to the boy to exchange for good wine,
And we'll drown away the woes of ten thousand generation!

- Li Bai

Happy New Year!
