In the latest of news which seems totally implausible and ethically irreconcilable, a devoted wife in Taiwan has fulfilled her husband’s wishes to the end, putting aside her grief to invite strippers to perform at his funeral, reports Tencent.
Normally, promiscuously-dressed women strutting around and posing provocatively is not an image one would associate with the typically sober affair of a funeral; but this Taiwanese wife could think of no better way to pay homage to her husband.
Apparently, the woman organised the unorthodox entertainment to venerate her late husband’s memory and let him feast his eyes from the afterlife, as during his time, he famously had a penchant for looking at beautiful women.
While we’re not sure if this spectacle is a somewhat unhealthy but genuinely affectionate tribute to the woman’s husband, or actually a symbol of spiteful irony mocking his wandering eye; it certainly is an incongruous sight for the normally solemn place of mourning.
That is not to say however, that it is a totally unfamiliar one. Last month, raunchy photos of strippers and pole dancers gyrating on stage from funeral services in rural Hebei revived the trend of erotic distractions at funerals which had been on a long hiatus following the crackdown on x-rated entertainment accompanying eulogies.
