zhang yimou china fined million kids

Wow, and we thought having kids here was expensive!

Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou — best known here in the U.S. for having directed The House of Flying Daggers — has been fined by China the extremely nuts sum of $1.2 million! For having more than one child!

He breached the country’s one-child rule for families, and breached it by two: he has three kids with his wife, Chen Ting!

The cool thing is that he said he's willing to pay the fine, and wants China to bring it on! He loves his kids, and any amount to pay for them and the happiness they bring is just groovy.

The fine was reportedly calculated using the couple’s combined income in the years the children were born.

He has 30 days to pay up!

Or move, we guess! LOLz!

    They have no choice. They have to control their population size. If they dont control it, they might have to "branch out" beyond their borders one day and that would be like a freight train riding over the world because they are the strongest country in the world and they can replace their dead soldiers with endless new meat. It would be an army that never dies. That would be world war 3. They have choice. Its in the worlds best interest that they NEVER overpopulate so much that they lose their ability to sustain themselves within their own approved borders.

    Wait a minute. He's 60 something and his babe is only early 30s around my age or something? Wow. Give him an AWARD of $1.2 million. He has it going on. Let him have fun, china. And he's a great director too. Some men should get special privileges.
