Doctor, It Hurts When I Sit

Hello, faithful readers. Here's a quick little math equation for you:


Plus this

Equals this

This is how the Chinese are controlling bench hoggers in their overcrowded park areas. The park officials got the idea for this modern torture device from a German sculptor named Fabian Brunsing. Brunsing was creating a hypothetical representation of the overcommercialization of society -- the Chinese government saw a way to keep people from sitting on park benches all day AND make some money in the process.

I hope you're happy with the results, China -- this may keep regular folks off of your benches, but now your parks are going to be a magnet for goths and sadomasochists from around the world.

Please tell me this isn't real! And please tell me if it is that it is longer than 2 minutes. If I was Chinese I would start carrying around my own flat seat to put on top of the spikes and sit on that. You know like a stadium seat.
BAD IDEA CHINA. and I thought you were for the common man. apparently only if the common man has enough cash to sit down.
