Chinese New Year must be near if Boy falls while performing lion dance on poles“.

I laughed out loud, and kept laughing until I stopped. OK, I know it’s bad to laugh at the misfortune of others, but a headline like that is funny in so many ways. Not least, because it’s from a Malaysian news site, because I think Malaysians are as, if not more silly, than we are.

OK, maybe it’s funny only to me. But the report on the lion dancing championships also quotes the chairman of the organiser, the Chinese Martial Art Association, as saying, “In every competition, without fail, someone will fall. It’s all part of the risks of the performance”.

Now you know. Pole dancing is an extreme sport.
