Wuxi China Expats have temporarily turned away their attention from Swedish Bikini Team Search 2011 to rumours that their Prime Minister Mango is getting married.
Billions of Yuan have already been wagered at local WCE betting emporiums on whether Mango will have a bride or groom or neither.
Billions more are being bet on who specifically Mango’s marriage mate will be. Former President Bill Clinton is the favorite, but only barely, among Expatdom punters. Other popular choices for Mango’s marriage mate include Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jennifer Aniston, Angela Jolie, Wang Fei, Liu Xiang, Terry Pickford, Gus Batterson, Pamela Anderson, Timothy Geithner, Lady Gaga, Mister Gaga, Paul McCartney, Nancy Pelosi, Jon Huntsman, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Stanley Dangle, and Cher.
PM Mango has arranged to hold a press conference at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion of Gambay’s Pub in the 1912 Bar District to announce something tomorrow. Wuxi China Expatdom Mangologists are certain that the Prime Minister will make a wedding announcement.
But the Mangologists have no idea who Mango is going to marry. Mangologist General Mcluhan says that talks he has had with Mango’s closest confident Harry Moore, have given no clues. "Moore tells me that Mango likes to keep a Berlin Wall-like separation between private and professional matters, and so it is impossible to know what turns the Prime Minister’s crank. Moore emphasizes that his relationship with Mango is professional though they have played a few rounds of golf together. Mango is a scratch golfer, Moore tells me, who plays the game expertly and sportsmanlike, and then goes home after the 18th hole politely declining all requests to come to the 19th hole for a drink and chat."
And so the Eyes of the Expatdom and most of the civilized world will be focused on the press conference Mango will hold tomorrow. Press passes for the conference are already fetching up to a million yuan on the Internet.
