May Day, May Day!

Yao Ming, Proletarian of the Year
In anticipation of the coming May Day festivities, the Houston Rockets' own Yao Ming has been named proletarian of the year by China's ruling Communist Party.

"Before, I thought model workers only recognized ordinary people who worked tirelessly and without asking for anything in return," the 24-year-old Yao said through his agent. "Now the award also includes someone like me, a special kind of migrant worker. That's a sign of progress."

Workers of the world can surely unite behind a twenty something Communist of the Year who earns millions a year from those silly American capitalists.

A tip of the hat to Chris Baker for calling attention to this important award.
