Wuxi Expat Robert Opel, an engineer at Johnken Bearing Company, says that after he takes a shower, his hair looks that of Mitt Romney, a front-runner for the Republican Party nomination in the 2012 U.S. Presidential election.
"When I come out of the shower, I can slick my hair back like Mitt and I think I look really cool and technocratic!" said Opel. "Unfortunately, my hair becomes fussed up during the day; so that by lunchtime, my co-engineers tell me I look like Michelle Bachmann!"
Opel, a registered Republican back in his home country, said he was a fiscal conservative and hawkish on National Defence, and that his first choice to be President among the current crop of candidates was Rick Santorum. "Of course, while I shower, I have fantasies of Sarah Palin entering the shower, or rather the presidential race, but alas, it is not to be!"
