Now THAT'S a funeral!!

China acts on funeral strippers

Chinese villages are being told to end the practice --
Five people have been detained in China for running striptease send-offs at funerals, state media say.

"Striptease used to be a common practice at funerals in Donghai's rural areas to allure viewers," Xinhua agency said.

"Local villagers believe that the more people who attend the funeral, the more the dead person is honoured."

It seems officials want to put an end to this, so now "funeral plans have to be submitted in advance"


officials have also said residents can report "funeral misdeeds" on a hotline, earning a reward for information.

WELL NOW! -- I guess they mean business
