OMG teh promised one!!!!1!

happycat has run out of happy :(

On my way to the subway this morning, I passed a guy sitting on the steps of the local branch of the Construction Bank with his head in his hands. He was a large – hell, a fat – Chinese gentleman, apparently middle-aged, with a shaved head and a long, flowing gown. He was just sitting there, holding his head, staring at the sidewalk in front of him. He glanced up when I walked by, and he looked so sad.

And I thought of cat macros like the one above.

I didn’t have my camera, but if I had, I would’ve taken a picture of the guy, and added the caption

THE MAITREYA BUDDHA
HAS RUN OUT OF HAPPY :(

Then in the afternoon I saw a guy on the subway who looked like a Chinese version of John Leguizamo.

    I find Browns to be the best place in Beijing to have that “hey, he/she looks just like so-and-so!” sensation. There are two regulars who resemble Jean Claude van Damme and Scarlett Johansson respectively, and always one or two that remind me of King Jong-Il. I’ll be on the lookout for a John Leguizamo.

    John Leguizamo made Night Court. It would have been a much better sitcom if he were playing all of the parts.

  9. Hi, Chih-Huei —

    “OMG” is Internet shorthand for “Oh My God.”

    Best,
