For all the people who keep lecturing us on how great China is at delivering rail service, here are some photos of what it’s like traveling in China when a little snow hits during New Year celebrations:

    Are these people OUTSIDE? If so, why are they penned in like that? It’s not like they’re seeking shelter.

    • Macsen Overdrive

      It’s China. That’s all you need to know.

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      You probably don’t want to whiff the shelters now.

      Communism doesn’t promote individual thought or action. Those people likely believe they have to stay, and don’t consider that there might be other options to get from A to B.

        There is safety in the middle of the herd…..

        • globalcrap

          Unless they stampede

        • Deplorable Jerry Camp

          Wonder if they rotate the outer boundaries, like penguins? They have the same hair cut.

          • John W.

            True, but penguins are dressed more sharply.

        Except when, daily, between 12:00 — 12:15 p.m., they are capitalists. 12:16 p.m., one of their massive port cities blows up again.

    • MTHarpooner

      Forget it, Jake. It’s China….

  • The Masked Avatar

    Where’s Waldo?

      …here ‘ya go

    The good news is there’s lots of food if you’re into eating people. The bad news is you’re always hungry an hour later after eating Chinese.

      He’s here all week, folks… 🙂

        Ba boom boom

        Don’t try the egg roll.

        • kennyraisin

          Good point

    • Deplorable AMERICAN™✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Almost spit my food at the monitor….

      • kennyraisin

        Sorry about that.

  • Don Reed

    Wrong caption! Those are the media reporters in Iowa penned off from the Clinton campaign HQ.

  • RblDiver

    Great, now you’re giving Trump ideas on how to get his next gathering going…

    • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

      And it’s gonna be YUUUGE!! The best, most fantastic gathering ever. Just watch. It’s going to be great.

    It’s GLOBAL WARMING and WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • MarciaTheMurkyMuse? Variegated

    Where, exactly, was the snow? Asking for a friend…

  • Deplorable AMERICAN™✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Waiting on the news to break of a spontaneous flash mob dancing to Smooth Criminal/Beat It by Michael Jackson.

    gonna be tough to get a seat

    ALL ABOARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      And that’s just the caboose. There are 456 main cars attached to the engines; when the last car leaves Umma Goopa, the first engine is puling into Paris.

  • Rick Owen

    Maybe they should start doing things in smaller increments of people.

  • CoastalMaineBird

    Hmmm. There’s no African-Americans there. Must be RAYCISS !

    • Don Reed

      The nerve! Where’s all the black snow?!

  • JosephBloughs ✓Viagrafied

    I’m undecided between “Where’s Waldo?” and “Who farted?”

    Big rine. Rearry big rine.

    Wow. I’m really glad that my friend was flying directly into Beijing! It’s her first trip “home” in 20 years and I’m really excited that she gets to see all of her family while she’s there!

    In other news, Football Game strands 80,000 in stadium for 4.5 hours this Sunday.

  • SchroedingersDeplorableDog

    To be fair, New York City was stranded last year when the Governor ordered the entire subway shut down, and all roads closed.
    The NYC subway system was originally built so that trains could continue to run during snow – 19th century, you-are-buried snow. Even the dunces at MTA had plans for such an event and kept the trains running … but you couldn’t ride the them, they ran empty.

    Even neo-communist China doesn’t stick it to their people like that.

    Global Warming I tells ya!

  • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    This is exactly why I ALWAYS go to the bathroom before I leave the house.

    • lCOYAR

      You could always move to San Fransisco, where you can go in public, and be celebrated for it.

      • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Maybe that’s why there’s a huge Chinatown in SF?

      • Richard Cox

        Or New York City

    • Don Reed

      Do your business; fold it up and insert into fortune cookie; ship to America (after stenciling on side of box, “Made In Portugal”).

  • Jim

    Say what you will about communist China, but at least the trains run on ti….dammit.

  • Dwayne Mountain Dew Camacho


  • Kevin Giltrud

    How long did it take for the toilets to back up?

  • Richard Cox

    I was there in November. I rode the trains. It is a very good system. If you read the story, you will see that the overload of the train system was caused by cancelled air travel and delays, “of up to 50 minutes” on the train system. So, not a train system failure.
    The Chinese New Year holiday is just starting. This is a period of about 10 days that roughly equates to a combination of our Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holidays combined. Most companies are mandated to shut down for this holiday period by the government. In the last 2 decades there has been massive migration of the population from rural, Central and Eastern China to urban, coastal, Eastern China for jobs. All of these job seekers go home for this holiday. The 1.4 billion people there will make over 2 billion trips by rail, air and road over the next 15 days.

  • Gregor Eisenstein

    This wouldn’t have happened if they celebrated the new year at the beginning of the year.

  • surfdog

    The Chinese are notorious for cutting in line . Good luck with that bunch . And how is the over built bullet train system working out ?

  • Deplorable Nigel Pinchley

    What your doctor’s office waiting room will look like after “Bernie” implements single payer health care and open borders.

  • whatev…✓ yo’self.

    It isn’t as bad as it looks. The government is blaring selected Mao speeches over the public address system to soothe their minds.
