    I got it from an email. Here is the original Chinese: 【官员应恢复坐轿制度】有网友建议官员应恢复坐轿制度,主要有6个好处:1,低碳环保;2,全国800多万官员,每轿4人抬,新增3200多万人就业;3,每年至少省1500亿公车支出;4,彻底解决城市堵车,消除尾号限行麻烦;5,企业家效仿,又增加1倍以上就业;6,方便百姓拦轿鸣冤告状更加亲民。

    Nice one! Made me smile. It wouldn’t surprise me if the idea gains traction at some point among China’s elite either…

    This is really funny and I think it would help with the traffic and pollution here in Beijing. It can get really bad.
