An elderly woman was spotted recently trying to prostrate herself before the old gods, not realizing that the statue she was bowing to was instead the idol of a new era.
The photos come from outside an internet café, the woman is seen kneeling and burning incense in front of a statue that bears quite the resemblance to Lord Guan, a Chinese general during the Three Kingdoms period, immortalized in one of China’s most famous books, and turned into a god. However, it turns out that the statue is actually Garen, a League of Legends character, also an accomplished military leader.
“The most effective way to kill an opponent is to slice through the man next to him,” Garen or Guan Yu?
The images have left many netizens feeling heartbroken for the poor woman:
“I feel really sorry for her, probably her family ran into some unexpected trouble, and she is looking for help,” one netizen sympathized.
“As long as your beliefs are sincere, then the true god will help you,” another reassured.
We are sure that by telling Garen her problems, our friend felt all of her troubles lifted away, and that’s what matters at the end of the day. Right?
