Help Wanted

Who's unemployed? Who likes to cry? Who likes Taiwan?

If you answered "me" to at least one of those questions than, boy do we have a job for you!!! The mourning business is alive and thriving in Taiwan (no pun intended)!! Families have paid up to $30,000 for professional entertainers to wail, scream, sob, and generally carry on for a loved one's funeral. Why? Just to be prepared in the event no one cries. Taiwanese believe that if no one cries than the person doesn't die-I think?
