Slap and tickle

It is now official: the world’s stupidest philanderer lives in Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan province. Affairs are commonplace in China today, and the newspapers often report on illicit relationships.

Still, there is a certain decorum to be observed by the cheating male: meet the mistress in a discreet location, prepare a good alibi and rehearse potential answers to a suspicious spouse. Not so with philanderer Wang, who took his squeeze to the Kuaijie Hotel. An inept choice, as the Dongfang Jinbao News points out, because the venue was managed by his very own wife. When Mrs Wang noticed that her husband had booked a room, she stormed in on the couple, catching them in the act.
