Danwei.org shares this pretty adorable video from the Chinese newspaper Southern Metropolis Daily showing schoolchildren returning to class on the first day of the term. The reporter asks the children what they want to be when they grow up and most give standard answers like fireman or pilot. Around 1:55, though, one little girl goes a little off-script:
“I want to be an official”
?Reporter:] “What kind of official?”
“A corrupt official, because corrupt officials have a lot of things.”
Everybody’s got a dream.
