A septic tank suction truck explodes in China's Guangxi province Hechi city, covering nearby stores and pedestrians in human waste.


From NetEase:

@现代快报 [Modern Express]: Excrement Truck Explodes, Passersby Tragically Covered — According to netizen @旺寶兒發, an excrement truck [a vehicle that collects human waste from septic tanks] in Guangxi province Hechi city exploded, and this is probably what the having your face sprayed with shit must be like! The poor pedestrians, going out for a stroll only to be covered in shit… Without any precaution, and without a trace of apprehension, you appeared…

The most headstrong sprayer since the beginning of shit.

[Note: This comment involves multiple puns. 喷子 “sprayer” also means hater, flamer, a netizen who complains too much or attacks others. It is used here to echo the excrement that was sprayed in the explosion. 有屎以来 is a pun of 有史以来, the latter which means “since the beginning of time”. Taken together, the comment doesn’t really say anything but simply involves puns relevant to the story and to Chinese internet culture.]

The moment Sister Feng‘s child is born, it can go to the best public school in the United States for free, without having to send gifts [bribes] or find connections, and the enrollment process only takes 1 minute. Can you people compare?
