    Are you kidding? Whats the point of being on vacation if you can’t burn down some goods?

  3. GoodGuy | 3:40 am |  Vote: Add rating 0  Subtract rating 0  

    I don’t even want to think about what the consequence is for violating “People’s Republic of China security Management Punishment Rule” (Or, worse yet, offending it…)

  4. GoodGuy | 3:42 am |  Vote: Add rating 0  Subtract rating 0  

    No burning down goods? How about mids or schwag?

    I only go to guesthouses that encourage bibulosity.

    Is toothpaste an obstruct hygienic good? I understand that fireworks that disseminate radioactive material are banished, but I wouldn’t want to be struck by the public security organ (looks scary) for toothpaste.

    And this a Micherin 3-star hotel! You have to wonder what a lesser hotel’s rules might entail.

    But, bibulosity is why I travel !

    Dean Martin said, “You’re not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.” Hotel passengers will please fasten their floor belts.

    What fun is staying in a hotel if you can’t set off fireworks in your room?

    So if the animal walks itself in then we are good, right?

    When a “no smorking” sign just won’t do.

    They really don’t mess around in China if they punish your organ when you deal with secret guests, install an oven, or make a noise. And I thought law enforcement in Singapore crossed a line.

    Look for much the same notice coming soon to Branson-area hotels….

    Glad somebody’s finally taking a stand against the recent rash of bibulosity in China!

    You are now free to move about the guesthouse.

    Punishment by the The People’s Republic of China’s Security Organ. So THAT’S why prisoners are never seen or heard from again….that damn organ….(must notify those Human Rights guys)…..

    “So, how did you find this place?”
    “I followed the radioactivity leads into the guesthouse. The goods burning down were also a dead givaway”

    No patronizing, huh?

    I guess they had a lot of tourists who tried to teach them proper English…. Posh sods, the lot of ’em!

  42. tekleader | 8:25 am |  Vote: Add rating 0  Subtract rating 0  

    I swear I will always cherish the guesthouse… please don’t use the public security organ on me!

  43. Ambitious Drinker | 10:26 am |  Vote: Add rating 0  Subtract rating 0  

    You can get away with bibulosity if you’re vewy vewy quiet – they only prohibit “bibulosity, making noise”. Bwahaha!

    I don’t mind patronizing prostitues so long as they don’t cross the line into belittling.

    The public security organ will get you. Do not indulge in bibulosity!
    They will burn your goods for you.

  52. lil kim | 6:55 pm |  Vote: Add rating 0  Subtract rating 0  

    and why would you want to patronise the prostitutes?

  53. Myself | 6:49 pm |  Vote: Add rating 0  Subtract rating 0  

    Is a quiet bibulosity permitted?

  54. Myself | 6:49 pm |  Vote: Add rating 0  Subtract rating 0  

    I will not patronize any hotel that does not permit bibulosity.

  55. Myself | 6:50 pm |  Vote: Add rating 0  Subtract rating 0  

    They don’t permit bibulosity? In the U.S. that would be considered unconstitutional…
