Stripper Hired to Dance at Funeral

Posted on March 23, 2008

There is a bond that some children have with their parents that can never be stripped away.

Cai Ruigong, a Taiwanese man, proved that recently when he hired an adult dancer to perform at his father’s funeral.


Ruigong’s father, Cai Jinlai, was 103 years old when he passed away. Jinlai was famous for his interest in strips clubs and often traveled around the island where he lived, visiting various strip clubs. Jinlai was the oldest person in his village and had over 100 descendants.

Ruigong had made a promise to his father that if he lived past 100 years old, he would have a stripper dance at his funeral.

Jinlai would have been proud to know that he went out in style, with a $160 stripper dancing for 10 minutes in front of his coffin.

We recently published a video that was sent in by one of our readers that showed strippers performing in front of children. Apparently strippers are not frowned upon in Taiwanese culture.

In China, there has been a practice of having strippers at funerals to help boost the number of mourners.


“Local villagers believe that the more people who attend the funeral, the more the dead person is honoured.”

    That’s awesome!!! What a way to celebrate a life. with a lapdance on your coffin. That’s how I want to go out.

    I remember seeing Tom Vu’s commercials. I almost pee’d my pants when, talking about his “Money Back Guarantee,” he said, “Never, ever give money back. Very, very proud!”

    I guess his intent was lost in the translation. It was hilarious nonetheless!

    “The attraction of the “show” is more important than the deceased.”

    All funerals take place for the living, not for the dead. It’s all a show, and it’s all to serve the survivors.

    Heck, if I was that old guy I would have wanted the stripper on my hundredth birthday! When you’re dead you can’t appreciate lap dances :-(
