Oh my ahura mazda, people like my joke and I have accidentally ten times as much followers as before, and stars enough to fabricate a moderately sized nebula.
Now how to tell them that I am boring and not funny? 🙃

The response from the Chinese Ambassador to the Hungarian opposition

This is copied verbatim from facebook, "Chinese Embassy in Budapest".
For context see: guardian, BBC, HungaryToday.
Voice of the Press Spokesman from Chinese Embassy in Hungary
As a diplomat of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Hungary, I have been working in Hungary for nearly a decade and witnessed the deepening friendship between the Chinese and Hungarian peoples.
Recently, Hungary has gradually overcome the COVID-19, and people's daily life is beginning to return to normal. People on the streets are full of joy and laughter again. As someone who works and lives in Budapest, I am also delighted by this.

The last person leaving please switch off the lights.

The altright gov't want to build a for from money for chinese students, the outrage is huge, PM makes a law to stop blocking from local governments.
So the local (opposition lead) governments renamed the streets leading to the area:
- Dalai Lama str.
- Uyghur martyrs str.
- Free Hong-Kong str.
- Bishop Xie Shuguong str.

A summary of the changes:

YouTube’s right to monetize: has the right to monetize all content on the platform and ads may appear on videos from channels not in the YouTube Partner Program.

Holy clusterfuck! is basically no more.
Hostile takover, getting rid of community leaders, blackmailing, money, revenge.
I'm speechless.

Vaccination, hunpol- 

Here in Hungary, if you get your first shot you get a card within a week or two, which proves “you are protected”.

Now they made a decision that as soon as 40% of the population gets their card, we can start holding sports events, and people with cards can attend without a mask.

Because, fuck logic. And preventive measures. And people, too, because Hungarian politicians no longer need their voter base, apparently.

When Nicole Kidman asked Stephen Fry - after a long and detailed history of greek gods - "what's your IQ?" he smiled and said "Oh, shh, never mind; it's unreasonable."
