The Taiwanese comedian Ni Min-jan passed away, the Et TOday website informs us. Well, he didn’t just pass away. He hung himself from a tree in Ilan, after his mainland CHinese girlfriend told him to choose her or his local Taiwanese wife (his second wife after divorcing first).

Now it’s big big news story on TV every day for a week, 24/7.
What’s the big deal about him? I don’t get it. he wasn’t that great a comedian, nobody ever paid attention to him until he started crossdressing as Annette Lu and he deserves an Emmy for that act, it was great, but other than that, he wasn’t so important to Taiwan culture.
