Chinese God of Wealth vs. Western Valentine of Love

| February 17th, 2013

The following is a guest post by Philip via, edited by Key.


Today is February 14, Valentine’s Day in the west and also “Chu Wu”, the fifth day after Chinese New Year, which happens to be the day for Chinese to welcome the god of wealth.

The coincidence that the two popular holidays happen to fall on the same day dilutes the festivity of both. However, Valentine’s Day seems to be the losers.


As reported by some newspapers, the sales of followers this year decreased by about 30%. A poll even shows that 70% of the people decide to do nothing for Valentine’s Day this year. Other market related to Valentine’s Day such as chocolate market, candy market and gift market also see decrease.

On the other hand, the sale of fireworks has only decreased 20%. And it’s mainly caused by the air-pollution and regulations!


In fact, the fireworks played on “Chu Wu” are even more than that on Chinese New Year’s Eve which is supposed to be the most important day during the whole year for Chinese people. But the fact is in front of wealth, all the festivals are out.

    To be fair, Valentine’s day isn’t even relevant in most of “the West”. None of my friends here in Germany care about it, for example, (as much as chocolate and flower retailers would like us to), and it only became a thing here at all during the american occupation after the war.

    It’s an Anglo-Saxon holiday, really.

    In the US alone, people shoot each other right and left, crime is rampant. How’s that for love?

    • Zinger Jr says:

      Those filthy americans are nothing but savages. They sure love to shoot people with guns.

    Penis size matters, relatively speaking

    Height and penis size have similar influence on attractiveness to women.

    Science has spoken and, yes, gentlemen, size does matter.

    A newly published study by a University of Ottawa researcher has concluded penis length exerts a measurable sway on females evaluating potential sexual partners.

    “We found that flaccid penis size had a significant influence on male attractiveness,” concludes the study that was published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

    “Males with a larger penis were rated relatively more attractive.”

    Penis influence depends on height

    “If you look at how penis size interacts with male height, it has a differential effect at the lower height sizes. Take the tall men — you get a really big impact (in attractiveness) of how large your penis is relative to your height.

    “An increase in penis size if you’re of average height does influence your attractiveness. It doesn’t do quite as much as it does at the upper end of the height spectrum.

    “If you’re short, it doesn’t matter what size your penis is.”

    No wonder why the China bitches are always looking at the black and white guys.

    It’s not the money or the ugly face or the fall belly, it’s the huge dickey they may have.

    China guys do this now, roll up 2 pairs of socks and put it in your pocket with the cash.
