Chinese Theme Park Offers Discounts for Miniskirts
Boasting charming rides and themed attractions, the Merry-Land Resort Theme Park is a bit like Southern China's answer to Disneyland — except for the hordes of miniskirt-wearing women being hosed down by their fellow patrons.

The miniskirts are the product of a summer marketing campaign aimed at attracting more visitors. The park offers a half-price discount to all women wearing skirts shorter than 38 inches—and it takes the gimmick very seriously: Staff members wait at the park entrance armed with rulers and anything other than a miniskirt (like a short dress or hot pants) need not apply.
