One of the top tweets on Sina Weibo today is this post by real estate tycoon Ren Zhiqiang (but apparently not written by him):
The cat and the pig are good friends. One day, the cat fell into a huge hole, and the pig came to her rescue with some rope, the entire length of which he threw promptly into the hole. The cat cried out, “Now how on earth are you going to pull me up?” The pig replied, “Then what should I do?” The cat said, “Well you should be pulling one end of the rope, of course!” The pig then jumped into the hole, held on to one end of the rope, and said to the cat, “Now we’re talking!” The cat began to weep. She wept bitter tears, but they were tears of joy. Some friends are not very smart, but they’re worth keeping for life.
