Comments from NetEase:


Look at that sign…disgusting!


Upon seeing that paper sign, you immediately know that this brother is one big stupid cunt!!!!!!!!


People who have nothing better to do doing pointless things.


Actually, that sign was meant to be the coldest joke.


No matter what, their bodies are still extremely good~~


A running dog [of the Party]. If you did it, you did it, but why write such disgusting words!!!


After going home, the two wives ask to divorce.


This guy is a Taiwanese spy, using complex characters!


Classic deception/ruse, the temperature of ice water mixture is zero degrees, but try standing in -10 degrees open air and see.


The champion/winner is North Korean. Ever since he was young, he was known as “fire baby”, playing outside in -20 degree temperatures wearing only shorts and slippers. He’s from my county, and has been in the newspaper before…

    Pffft. I could do that if you gave me enough baijiu to fight the cold with.

    • Hongjian

      you do know that alcohol of every sort will bring you serious frost-bites, are you?

      the baijiu might ‘warm you’ as in giving you a feeling of warmth, but in reality it is just directing your precious body heat outsides, leaving you with nothing to resist the cold.

      you will die a horrible and painful death, made of amputations, shit and vomit.

      but that’s alright~

      • meiguo fenqing

      • Alikese

        Well, if I was going to be stuck out in the cold I’d rather have a bottle of booze than not. Toss in a pack of smokes too, so I look cool as I freeze to death. I’ll be the James Dean of ice statues.

      I look forward to reading more about 骆驼趾姐 in the future.

  • mankouzanghua

    heh, many netizens objected to the sign: zhongguo gongchandang wansui — long live the CCP. interesting element of this post.

  • xmcx

    “there was significant shrinkage” comes to mind

  • Teacher in China

    I love the random picture of the cute girl there. Nothing like a bit of camel toe with the morning tea…

  • MadeInChina

    After the pic of the camel contestant gettin his blow on and looking very exhausted after.

  • John Gault

    “where Chen Kecai and Jin Songhao of Heilongjiang province stood naked in glass compartments ”

    not exactly naked. I see shorts. Maybe naked has a different meaning in Chinese.

  • what does his sign say?

    • MAC

      “Long live the Chinese Communist Party.” I fucking wish I were joking, but I’m not.

      • mankouzanghua

        why do you wish you were joking?

        to me it just seems unusual and a bit corny for him to have written that. at least with the netizens the sign seems to have had a net negative effect, annoying people…

  • T

    “Oh my gosh, he’s a spy for writing in complex characters! He must be a traitor!”

    What idiots. They completely forgot their entire history and culture.

    • mankouzanghua

      as far as I can tell that was a joke, poking fun at the official line on using simplified characters in the PRC.

    • donscarletti

      He wrote 中國共產党万岁 (long live the Communist Party of China) which is in a mixture of simplified and traditional characters, which is probably due to him learning to write in the time when simplified Chinese was still spreading around the country. Simplified would be 中国共产党万岁, traditional would be 中國共產黨萬歲.

      It is obviously a joke, since he was being very supportive of the Chinese government.

      • pengyou

        It is supposed to be calligraphy, even in mainland China calligraphy is usually written with traditional characters.
        He simply didn’t know how to write the rest of his sentence so he used simple characters.

        The comment saying he must be a spy is simply a joke.

  • Jay K.

    i see camel toe on that girl! ya! camel toe!

    • kissmyass

    see what is the real Iceman:
    In sub zero temperatures 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Dutch Daredevil Wim Hof attempts to run a full 26-mile marathon clad only in shorts and a pair of sandals.

  • mistyken

    so are they supposed to warm themselves with that girl after they got out of the ice casket?

  • Ho Hum

    That girl’s definitely a butterface*.

    Nice body, *but her face…

    • Pvt. Joker

      Who’s looking at her face when there is cameltoe to be gawking….

      • Ho Hum

        Yeah, guess you could just turn the lights of and still have a helluva time. You’d definitely want to turn the lights off, though. I still take umbrage with the description above – “pretty model”. That’s a minger with a hot body.

  • dude

    cameltoe…hmm i saw it..long enough? stupid news btw

  • Those guys are really COOL!

  • Meh

    Pointless achievement is oh so very pointless.

  • Meh
