This is an actual news report of an actual upcoming event:
In order to provide people of foreign nationalities in Taiwan with the best tax experience and to prevent false receipts or unidentified sources of information, the National Taxation Bureau (NTB) of Taipei, Ministry of Finance (財政部臺北國稅局) is holding a talent show to promote taxation awareness on Nov. 9 in Daan Park at 1:30 p.m.In the wake of the Ting Hsin food scandal, this joke is again making the rounds...
The Ministry of Finance invites foreigners over 14 years of age who are not native speakers of Mandarin to come and give performances related to paying taxes, all in Mandarin. Performances include story-telling, singing, rapping, comedy and mimicry.
Besides foreigners performing on stage, there will also be well-known street performers to open the show. Other events include tax-related academic games with prizes and gifts to hand out, tasty food and DIY handicrafts.
An American, a Russian, and a Japanese are exploring the jungle when they are set upon by cannibals.
The American guy says: "Oh, I am all fat. No meat at all. Not good for you." But the cannibals eat him anyway.
The Russian guy says: "My flesh is soaked in alcohol. You don't want me, tastes terrible." But the cannibals eat him anyway.
The Japanese guy says: "I'm Taiwanese."
The cannibals don't eat him.
