    There a friendly bunch aren’t they

  2. algernon | 4:09 am |

    Any smaller an you could sent them by microwave

  3. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:16 am |

    – Mommy, why don’t you grow up over 1.1 meters of children?

  4. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:53 am |

    – OK people, now everybody stand up!

  5. Droll not Troll | 4:57 am |

    Meters? All the children I know have 2 feet!

  6. Droll not Troll | 5:01 am |

    Children with 1.1 meters of relevant regulations are natural born nerds.

  7. Droll not Troll | 5:04 am |

    Stop fooling around, kid. Start acting your height!

  8. Seventy2rd o clock | 5:13 am |

    What about 13.2 liters of my wife?!

  9. Sparky | 5:15 am |

    It’s all relevant.

  10. Droll not Troll | 5:31 am |

    All children must be metric. Imperial children won’t fit.

  11. Seventy2rd o clock | 5:32 am |

    @ Droll not Troll: 2 feet is ca. 0.61 meters, so there’s 3-4 feet of Chinese children! ;p ;p

  12. DrLex | 5:32 am |

    You must first read through a 1.1 meter pile of relevant regulations books before you can take the cableway of jade screen.

  13. Droll not Troll | 5:38 am |

    ♪ ♫
    Short children got 1 meter
    Short children got 1 meter
    Short children need no ticket
    To ride. ♪ ♫

    @Seventy2rd o clock: Must be caused by the melamine in the baby formula!

    ……too soon? 😛

  16. Seventy2rd o clock | 6:23 am |

    Size meters, they say

  17. Chuck | 6:54 am |

    @DNT: I was reading your post when “Ticket to Ride” came on the radio at that exact moment !!

  18. Chuck | 6:56 am |

    Imperial China doesn’t use Imperial measurement.

  19. jjhitt | 8:07 am |

    Friendship suggestion: Any longer and we’d be more than just friends.

  20. Marum | 8:42 am |

    The chinese childhood is shorter than I thought.

  21. Marum | 8:44 am |

    If you can see over this pile of regulations, you are an adult, for metering purposes.

  22. Marum | 8:47 am |

    1.1 to 1.3 meters long.

    I begin to understand why there are so many Chinese people.

  23. A Non-Y Mouse | 8:51 am |

    Oh oh. Looks like Facebook got hit by Chinese hackers.

  24. Seventy2rd o clock | 8:58 am |

    Watch ‘Children of the Meters’

  25. JimS | 9:03 am |

    I only buy children by the foot.

  26. Marum | 9:21 am |

    For metering purposes, I am the Chinese Chequer.

  27. Marum | 9:23 am |

    @JimS. It appears that the Salvation Army here in Oz, was selling them by the inch.

  28. Mark | 9:53 am |

    ‘Children’ – the brand new product from your local B&Q

  29. Marum | 10:21 am |

    @jjhitt. Sorry. It’s not mine. It’s the bloke’s next to me. ;X

  30. Nonsuch Ned | 11:03 am |

    L’chaim!
    My son is now 1.3 meters, he is now a man!

  31. Someone | 1:13 pm |

    This is why Chinese parents are always so strict: if you’re considered an adult not before the age of 18, but rather at 1.3+ meters, it means that high school needs to be finished alot faster.

  32. Mr. Wrong | 3:08 pm |

    Honest, Officer, I could have sworn she was 1.3 meters.

  33. Jack | 5:12 pm |

    “The child has grown, free of charge” I should hope so! Damn taxes…

  34. Garst | 6:22 pm |

    The first 1.1 meters are free of charge. After that, you pay!

  35. Droll not Troll | 9:16 pm |

    @Garst: That’s what she said! 😛

  36. Droll not Troll | 9:18 pm |

    @Chuck: Funny, they just played “Ticket to Ride” on the radio here. It would be weird if they followed it with “Short People”.
    😉

  37. Droll not Troll | 10:08 pm |

    The jade screen of cableway is much friendlier than the blue screen of death.

  38. Lollerskate | 12:08 am |

    Friendship suggestion? Jeez, this one is even worse than facebook’s…

  39. WorrierPrincess | 1:31 am |

    I have 2.4 children, measuring 1.8 meters in total. How many tickets do I need?

  40. kemi242 | 10:41 am |

    I guess, I need to get less than 1.1 meters of children if I want to take the cable away of the jade screen.

    Mini Me goes free
