Do you feel the guy in the right is somewhat familiar
to your eye? Hmmm ... yap, he is a Chinese basketball star
playing for Houston Rockerts. Then who is the guy in the
left? The star's newly discovered twin brother?
To find the answer we may need to turn our attention to
Hollywood first, and to the Universal Studio in particular.
Some time ago the Universal confessed to the world that
it has tipped off the most celebrated tomb robbers on the
planet for the third time, and the new victim is the most
splendid graveyard in the East. Jet Li, who previously
in Hero made a failed attempt on the life of First Emperor
Chin, is coming back with a mandate to sack China's most
sacred city of the head.
Earlier when a Chinese economist proposed to excavate
the tomb and turn it into a tourist attraction to earn
hard cash, the get-rich-quick guru nearly died of drowning
in an angry wave of online condemnation. This time when
Jet Li's wicked intention let known to China's Netizens,
there is, strangely, no protest, but restrained excitement.
Then a rumour has surfaced out of nowhere and spreads
across Chinese cyberspace faster than wide fire. At this
very moment, anyone who browses through China’s online
forums will soon stumble on a bunch of photos that are
said to be of the incarnations of the terra-cotta
warriors who guard the underground palace. It is long
known that the clay soldiers were modeled according to
the emperor's real armies, and when some persons in the
photos clearly happen to be our contemporaries, you go
figure the implications!
So following the clues, we have conducted some investigations
by letting all these appeared in the photos try on each
other's costumes and hairdos, and the results are stunning.
Now we present our examinations here for you to review
and to judge.
The man in the right is a famous Chinese actor, and
the man in the left ....
... is a terra-cotta warrior
The man in the left is a terra-cotta warrior, but the
man in the right ...
... is a Chinese comedian
Now let's go back to the first question: who is the
guy in the left.
You may have already figured out. So what
is this star basketball player?
宁可信其有，不可信其无。It is very likely that the yin army
guarding the imperial mausoleum against the tomb robbers
has already returned to the yang world. Somebody
please warn Jet Li, Rob Cohen, Stephen Sommers, Alfred Gough,
Miles Millar, Bob Ducsay, Sean Daniel, Jim Jackj .......
