Check Out This Amazing “Pole Dancing” Funeral!

Friends, the internet just keeps giving – like this story of a Taiwanese Councilor, a well-known politician, who passed away at the age of 76 in December 2016. Of course, the local Taiwanese News would cover such a story –

ESPECIALLY WHEN HE HAS A POLE DANCING FUNERAL PROCESSION!

Thanks as always to the great Reporters at “RocketNews24.com”, who explain how this wacky funeral happened:

“Telling his brother via a dream through the afterlife two days before the funeral, local councilor Tung Hsiang wanted a funeral procession of jeeps with poles sticking out the top and 50 beautiful dancers using those poles the best way they knew how!”

While I don’t speak or understand Taiwanese, the following news story makes it clear that this was a public procession, as you can see from all of the pictures shared on social media of the event:

Here is the entire news story from Taiwan – I love how their newscast look, and of course, you get lots of women pole dancing while the funeral parade goes by:

  1. I will start saving now if I can have that group of babes dancing at my funeral.
    In fact, why wait until I’m dead?
    Best wishes, Pete.
