Some More Chinese Weirdness

I don't know if you remember bumper cars from your youth, but some cunning Chinese entrepreneur has discovered a new use for older machines.

He's stripped off the bumper and lets people drive them up and down the "main drag," with the result that you regularly hear "ice cream van music," only to turn round and see some "mature lady" driving down the street. You'd think it'd be kids that like it, but it's usually some mad old crone having a bit of fun, but I don't know why.

Weird.
