Eight Represents: Exposing Justrecently’s Lies

with 3 comments

Justrecently wrote another biased and distorted post yesterday. He comments on the new bilingual Hualan Magazine‘s story on The Eight Represent Ordinary Women, and by commenting on one of the photos he suggests that The Eight Represents were no real Represents, because the furniture wasn’t ordinary enough. No, he doesn’t say that, he only viciously implies that without saying!

I will expose Justrecently’s lies one by one.

Let’s look at what some of the represents said when they were asked what Germany makes them think of:

Represent One

Hualan Magazine: Represent One

Represent 1:
I don’t know much about Germany. But I like dogs very much, so I’m thinking of German shepherd dogs first.

Represent 2:
Germany? They say that the sausages are very tasty (unfortunately, I haven’t tried one yet). The beer is excellent, too, but I drink no beer.

Represent 3:
When talking about Germany, I’m thinking of brown bread first. Haha, maybe it’s because I don’t like brown bread. (…) Germans are pretty ambitious. (…) They don’t plan today for tomorrow, but much earlier. (…) Don’t be in the way of their fixed plans, otherwise they may fall out with you. That doesn’t mean that they abandon friendly relations, but it shows that they are annoyed about something.

Represent 4:
I’m very cheerful and open-hearted. In the past, I was a model on auto shows, and I once founded an orchestra with three Germans. (…) They aren’t as boring as people describe them.

Represent 5:
Recently, I bought a LV bag in Germany, but the price was 15 Euros above that in France. (…) Germans are very serious, punctual, and act like gentlemen. (…)

The other three represents talked the same way. And you try to make us believe that they aren’t ordinary? Shame on you, Justrecently! You are too CNN!
