I would file it under Political Joke of the Day except that...

A couple of weeks back, vice-chairman of the Democratic Party (part of the pro-democracy camp here in HK) Albert Ho was attacked by a few persons. Read the story here. His party's chairman, after visiting Ho, allegedly said "Ho was beaten up like a 'Pig Head"" when describing his colleague's condition to the press. For readers unfamiliar with Cantonese, being called by somebody as "Pig Head" is ususally treated as an insult. If the allegation were true, wasn't it strange that the chairman use that term to describe his colleague?

Just hope that US Vice President Dick Cheney did not call his buddy a "Human Beehive" when he accidentally shot him while hunting. Read it here.
