Money Cat of the Day: China’s central bank was moved to issue an official statement of denial after Chinese microbloggers began widely circulating a claim that three cats were found hidden in the pattern of the 100-yuan note.
“I always thought only Chairman Mao was printed on today’s notes. Actually, our banknotes are so cartoonish and adorable,” a Weibo user is quoted as saying.
The People’s Bank of China, not wanting to appear affable, sought to quash the rumors with a non-feline explanation for the cat-like glyphs. It seems they were based on nondescript decorations found on lacquerware from the Warring States Period (476-221 BC).
“Someone imagined the patterns as three cats and drew the profile with a marker to mislead the public,” the bank said in its statement.
Sorry, guys. Cannot be unseen.

Oh China, I miss you.

    Why aren't we riding on one of those "Ding Dings*?"

  • Me:

    That's what she said

  • Fred:

    Nice.

  • *Ding Dings is another name for the trolleys in Hong Kong.

What the what?

Mom, in response to my brother eating too much chocolate. Yeah, she’s a funny lady :)

Listen, God will reward you for your good works, whether that be in money or love lol. If it was my choice I’d take the money, but love is cool too

Calvin Chau, the exhorter :) This is why he is my best friend hahah ♥

Because if this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn’t help the poor, either we’ve got to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we’ve got to acknowledge that he commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition…and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.
