Chinese Delinquents Solve Shidduch Crisis

We all know that China has a one-child policy aimed to reduce their overpopulation, right? And that tradition values males above females, right? Which is why there are currently 37 million more males than females in China today.

Does anyone see what I see? Or what Anon saw, when she sent me the link to this article. China has a whole lot of men competing for a very limited number of women. The orthodox community has (supposedly) a whole lot of women competing for a limited number of men. Let’s convert the men, ship the women to China, and viola! Shidduch crisis solved.

Who’s volunteering for the pilot program?

  1. Interesting to note that the gezeirah in the Midbar was for the men to die, not the women – so this problem has been going on for some 3300 years . . . and yet we’ve still continued to thrive as a people. I guess this is not a new problem, and yet G-d has been taking care of it all this time, why should we doubt that He would do anything different now?

  2. I blogged about this on my blog a while back, here. Two of the commenters mention the Chinese male overpopulation problem.

    And BSD35678- Back in the time when we were in the wilderness, polygamy was allowed, so perhaps that’s how they solved the problem back then.

  4. This one I have heard but was too good 2 pass up

    the job of a (whisper) shadchan

    The poor man replies, “I never interfere in my son’s life.”

    The shadchan responds, “But the girl is Lord Rothschild’s daughter.”

    “Well, in that case…”

    Next, the shadchan approaches Lord Rothschild. “I have a husband for your daughter.”

    “But my daughter is too young to marry.”

    “But this young man is already a vice president of the World Bank.”

    “Ah, in that case…”

    Finally, the shadchan goes to see the president of the World Bank.

    “I have a young man to recommend to you as a vice president.”

    “But I already have more vice presidents than I need.”

    “But this young man is Lord Rothschild’s son-in-law.”

    “Ah, in that case….”

  5. Hey, Bad4, if I get a free trip to China, I might discover a repressed liking for short, squat, yellow men…

    On second thought, scratch that. I’ll be the Kiruv Rebetzin and clearing the way for the other lucky ones.

  6. Ha Ha! Mindy if I get a free trip I want to be first on the Shidduch list!

    Just too many jokes…..

  7. I’ll try to keep an eye out but you know how it is these days… The girls keep knocking my door down, it’s mamash a catastrophe! Ibarely have time to interview the men!!

  8. By the way, you know that in China, there are around 20 000 girls who are just just unrecorded, but actually do exist? Pathetic…
