It still exists – negative cock tax

There are some places in the world where negative cock tax still exists…quaintly called a dowry, and this one is somewhat more substantial than a cow and 3 goats plus a few chickens:

A Chinese kitchen and bathroom tile magnate has launched his daughter into marriage with a dowry of more than one billion yuan (?100 million).

Wu Ruibiao included as part of his largesse four boxes of gold which were placed on his daughter’s bed as well as a Porsche and a Mercedes-Benz which were handed over draped with red ribbons.

So who is the lucky fellow?

According to the Straits News newspaper Ruibiao’s daughter, who has not been named, decided to marry her childhood sweetheart, a local government official called Xu from Jinjiang, an entrepreneurial city onChina’s?south coast.

An eight-day public wedding banquet began on December 28.

But the generosity of the father did not end there.

A bank account has been opened with an initial deposit of 20 million yuan and five million shares in Mr Wu’s company, Wanli, with an estimated value of 100 million yuan, were transferred.

Yeah sure he is the childhoo sweetheart…scored a sweetheart deal though.
