China’s holding a cremation constest to crown the countrys best cremator, in an effort to destigmatize the cremation process. The government hopes this method of dealing with the deceased will eventually gain popularity in the over crowded country. From what I gathered, despite the fact that half of the Chinese population opt for cremation, land use for burial purposes is becoming scarce at an alarmingly fast rate.
Whos going to be crowned China’s Next Star Cremator?!?
I tried coming up with a catchy title but couldn’t. Unfortunately I’m not as talented as some of the top Gawker commenters with the snarky puns. Suggestions?
