To be fair Paul, that geezer's back-flip is pretty impressive and he's got a longer beard than you. Similar sandals though.

Got to question the sanity of some people!
Who would commission, fund or watch such nonsense?

Totally different culture I suppose. A sort of angling homage to Crouching Tiger!

Exactly my point - a bit like the difference between Chinese (the clip) and Japanese (tenkara) eh?

Monkey was amazing.

Pop quiz - Tripitaka; male or female??

I still don't know without looking on google.

Edit - just looked it up; actually female (rather than a ludicrously feminine/androgenous boy).
Double Edit - The performer was female...but the character seems to have been male...
