Prime Minister of the Wuxi China Expatdom Mango defended the practice, of hiring corpses to be government bureaucrats in non-essential positions.
The practice had come under criticism from fringe and reactionary elements of the opposition Nudist party.
Said PM Mango, "Since we began the practice of allowing civil servants who have to died to keep their jobs, the quality of government work has improved ten-fold, and we have saved the Expatdom treasury millions of yuan. It is a win-win for everyone. Dead people don’t feel they are being neglected. People who would otherwise be doing the devil’s work of making onerous regulations, are instead out in the market place, testing their true mettle. Besides, isn’t it discrimination to let someone go because they are dead? Hmmmm?"
