April Fools 2017


On this day, the old classmate of Zhang Ye’s, Dong Shanshan went to the mental hospital to visit him.

At this moment, Zhang Ye was typing in front of an imaginary computer, claiming he was a hacker. As he hummed a tune, the doctor-in-charge said to Dong Shanshan, “This child is rather pitiful. After failing to find a job after graduating from college, he lost his mind. At the beginning, he was only running on the streets, shouting around. When asked what he was doing, he said he was reciting poems in Russian. Later on, he would sit up in the middle of the night to tell ghost stories. His family hurriedly sent him here, but to our surprise, his condition turned worse.

At times he would hold a piece of paper while reciting melody poems and then throw them randomly. At times, he would speak gibberish, claiming he was performing crosstalk. At times, he would write and recite poems. At times, he would practice Taiji, and even frequently hugging the cleaning lady while shouting ‘Old Wu, I love you’. He even says he’s a mathematician…What a pity. He’s still so young.”

Dong Shanshan asked, “Is there any cure?”

The doctor said, “Yes, according to my diagnosis, he is living in his own mental world where he has created a story for himself. Once the story ends, he will walk out of the mental world.”

Dong Shanshan asked, “How long would that take?”

The doctor said, “That will depend on whether he continues to drag the story out with fillers or not.”

  1. Wow. Good old china…. how can they be so great a nation. When their media is so biased.
    Is this the china that zhang ye is supporting.
    (Im asian so not racist)

    1. Pfft, you act like the media in the rest of the world isn’t terrible.

      Sure in China they completely omitted the news about Zhang Ye, but in the west all of the mainstream media would have definitely bashed him for 3 days straight.

      1. True, there are some medias that hide stuff and some medias that are so biased that they don’t even care if they’re making the bad guy look like a good guy because they like the bad guy.

  2. But imagine if this happened in reality. After Zhang Ye has had an amazing time in the novel, he wakes up and realises nothing has changed. That would have been so cruel.

  3. Dong Shanshan : “Is there any cure?”

    The doctor : “Yes, according to my diagnosis, he is living in his own mental world where he has created a story for himself. Once the story ends, he will walk out of the mental world.”

    Dong Shanshan: “How long would that take?”

    The doctor : “That will depend on how fast Legge and CKtalon can translate before breaking their fingers”
