If you are the owner of a Japanese car, you might want to do what this Toyota owner in Sichuan did to protect his car:
1. Stick a China flag over the logo of your Japanese car;
2. Let the world know how much you really hate the Japanese (“Boycott Japanese products, and let the Japanese economy collapse!”)
3. Offer a mea culpa (“I bought this car before the Japanese started misbehaving. From today onwards, I will boycott Japanese products.”)
Remember, the more China flags and the more red banners you have on your car, the safer it will be from the angry mobs!
One Nissan owner in Chongqing who obviously didn’t follow the above guidelines paid dearly for it. In a post that has been retweeted some 80,000 times on Sina Weibo, he fumed, “Some ‘patriotic’ youth have removed the screws from the wheels of my Nissan SUV while it was parked at Shapingba. This is scarier than having your cars smashed. These mad dumbasses! What would I have done if I were a completely inexperienced driver? This could have killed someone!”
