February 7, 2008: Breast feeding Father-in-Law (NSFW?)


From the comments of the flicker site.

Quote:
I am a chinese, from the cloth I think it is a chinese thing. I think this statue is trying to show a very famous 'filial' event/legend in chinese history. In the old time in China, two most important core moral ideas: loyalty to the emperor and filial respect to your parrents. To educate the common people, a serie of legend/events including 24 stories are formalized.
This is actually one of them, I guess, it is #17 in this serie and story is a man name Cui, shannan, his grandma is very filial, and she breast-fed her 'mother-in-law' when she is too old to eat. I guess somehow the storyline is still there, but maybe the creator of the statue or the person made caption simply made a mistake.
The sequence of these events are not fixed, here is english version of the stories, the #10 is about this.

And a painting for similar theme is here: (in chinese)

If you look at the plaque nearby, it reads:

"As my grandfather gets older, he may lose his mind and he may lose his wits.
But nothing can erase his love of big tits".

Is that little boy in the background aiming a slingshot at the old guy? I can see the headline now...
