Dong the Dog Says: Just Say No to Cocks!
And Rats!
And Tigers!
And Snakes!

Only Dog People Need Apply

from Sploid

A Chinese company has gone public with a bizarre kind of workplace discrimination.

If you want to work at Jilin Jiangshan Human Resources Development Co. in Shanghai, you need to be born under the sign of the dog.

Help Wanted ads placed by the company say only those born under the dog sign are welcome to apply.

Chinese astrological years, a dozen in all, are named for animals including snakes, rats and tigers. Those born in the year of the dog are said to be especially loyal and hardworking - exactly the kind of mindless drone Chinese businesses require.

"We believe that people born in dog years are born with some good characteristics such as loyalty and honesty," a Mr. Dong told the Associated Press.

Dong, of course, is a dog.

People born in 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982 and 1994 reportedly have the personalities of easily controlled dogs.

Babies born after the start of the Chinese calendar, January 29, will also be dog people.

While China officially forbids workplace discrimination, there is no specific law addressing the Chinese zodiac.

Astrology is not some hippie fad in China. It is one of the oldest disciplines in the world, its rules carefully collected by the Earth's most ancient astronomers - and modern China is still deeply loyal to its astrological heritage.

Hi Nice Blog . I don't really know a lot about Human Anatomy study or art, but that's just my 2 cents. Really great job though, Krudman! Keep up the good work!
