Would it kill you not to make sarcastic remarks? What have you done for the disaster area as you enjoy air conditioning refreshing YellowEase [pun for NetEase]?

What the fuck do you want him to do for the disaster area? He paid his taxes, so you can go bring up donations and disaster relief with your Master, stupid cunt.

An earthquake happens somewhere. When the government leader goes to oversee the disaster relief, he sees vast fields of ruins/rubble and groups of armed police engaged in rescue efforts, with heartbroken tears spilling forth from the corner of his eyes… At this moment, his accompanying secretary leans close to the leader’s ear and says: Sir, we’re not at the disaster area yet, this place is just going through demolition [for redevelopment]!

Just several months ago, they were still in a private home producing their packaging wrappers. Now they’re in a new factory building. This can be considered the result of political favor.

This kind of donation is good. It’s practical, beneficial, and no one will embezzle it.

dukeghost [网易四川省成都市手机网友]:

This stuff has a lot of calories and doesn’t easily go bad, so it’s good for disaster relief.

[This qiegaocut cake” company/business] was started by fourth year students at my school, Changsha University of Science and Technology. I approve!
