    This is…..NOT Sparta!

    they didn’t resist like spartans..besides weren’t suppose to have a red cap? why black?

    • donscarletti

      They are also supposed to at least have a spear, a round shield with a big lambda on it and a helmet. They also should be able to speak Greek. Looks more like a gay pride parade than an army.

        and the helmet…let’s not forget the helmet.. sparants were not so scary without helmet.

        • mr.wiener

    Wow there must be tons of college grad expats in China these days. . When I lived in China in ’09 you could not round up that many white guys to do the monkey dance. I wonder how much they got paid. .

      As you can see, they couldn’t find enough Whiteys so they had to substitute Africans and Indians.

    If they got any compensation for walking around like this then they were probably all violating their visas/residence permits.
    Luckily most police aren’t aware of these rules, or any rules.

    Is that Chef Aaron Sanchez on the right?

    My RPG character could totally take all of them.
