    Laughs in Taipei

    Chinese New Year makes the politics becoming humors in Taipei.

    The most imterested one is as following:

    A citizen, after waiting for couples of hours, he finally got the "red purse money" from President Abian himself in person. He can't wait, right in front of Abain, he opened it, and found out it is just NT$10.

    He was obviously not too happy after the long couples of hours waiting. He said to Abian, "We all knew the economics is not good after you has taken over the government, but I didn't know it is **that** bad. What happened to the money Mrs. Abain has made from the stock market?"

    Happy Chinese New Year to those TSM ADR shareholders in US. Hope this year wiill be good year to TSM ADR shareholders.

    • What is the odd ? according to TSM00, in one post he claim is 4 to 1 but in another is 3 to 1 against Abian. It happens that both are lies. The odd as of last week is 4 to 1 against Len. That is you will bet aginst the KMT operative. If Len win, you get 4 times of you bet back. The bauty of this is that you have to put down your own money. You will have to vote for Len Chen, so when Len chen win, you get your money back. Actually, when I am was in Taiwan, I heard the bet is as high as 10 to 1 in certain areas. I guess some of you KMT crook like TSM00 must be "enriching" yourself like Song did. After all, it is only KMT money. Man, taking up to 700% commision ?? You KMT crooks put Song to shame.

    • This is a really dumb joke:

      1)Everybody knew beforehand that the 'red envelope' would contain only NT$10.
      2)The 'red envelope', and its content, was a 'gift', not a payment for work produced. It is crass to complain about any gift received.
      3)It is impossible to please everybody; someone will find a reason to complain: if it is NT$200, it is vote-buying; if it is NT$10, you get a tasteless joke.

      The purpose of this joke is to slam Abian in the face, saying that he screwed it up in national economy. I want to remind you that DPP assumed power in the beginning of high-tech down turn. For those of you who think that DPP
      did a bad job in economy, read this article:

        You are exactly right. The joke is to slam Abian and DPP in the face. That's why the joke is so popular during the New Year holidays here in Taipei. Most importantly, I heard the joke first from a political-neutral person.

        The underground betting game in Taiwan on the coming President election is currently 4:1 betting DPP will lose. Abian may still insists that he wants the referendum, but he can't change the people's bet that is betting on him to be the loser.

        Again, Happy Chinese New Year. hopefully, TSM ADR will have good year.

      Good joke.

    • Don't flater yourself. Abian is too stupid to make any real money. Abian's wife inherited the money ! She does not have the brain to make real money. you big tips (00) no brain.

      Did you known Mr. Len Chan is paying those attanding his rally $2000 NT ?? Think about the 1200,000 millions NT KMT will pump into the economy in the next few month. You should know who you need to thank when you see the stock market goes up.

    • TSM gonna soar this year~you can see on 29,Jan
