Hua Guofeng, A sad death for Chinese Communists and teenagers worldwide

Filed under: China,Our World — iknowkeith @ 6:26 am

A sad day in China as the book closes on the life of Hua Guofeng.  Of course, we all know him for his rule of China after the death of Mao Zedong.  And who doesn’t remember his famous quotations, some of which are still recited by school children around the world.  Don’t believe me?  Well, who hasn’t heard “whatever” be uttered in the sarcastic hateful tone that only a teenager can muster?  That’s right, Hua said it first.  In fact, his best known quote is usually refered to in China as the “two whatevers.”  You thought your teenager was rude with just one “whatever”, Hua went for two.  Thanks, Hua Guofeng, for adding spice to the language and character of teenagers around the world with your two whatevers.

 

Look at that face…  If that look doesn’t scream “whatever” then I don’t know what does.
