image for China To Honor Nelson Mandela By Putting His Likeness On A Commemorative Postage Stamp
Nelson Mandela loved visiting Hong Kong more than Rome, Paris, or Hollywood.

HONG KONG, China - South African President Nelson Mandela always talked about how much he enjoyed visiting China and eating the best egg rolls in the world.

He got to where he could use the chopsticks just as good as any Chinese citizen. He was so well loved that the people of China nicknamed him The Indigo Dragon, which is one of the biggest honors they can bestow on a foreign individual.

Former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson had originally been given that nickname but the Chinese government took it away from him after he married that money-chasing, gold digger Robin Givens.

China's foreign minister Kong Hong Liebowitz stated that his country would be honoring President Mandela by putting his likeness on a commemorative Chinese postage stamp.

SIDENOTE: The new postage stamp was originally supposed to have had a picture of The Great Wall of China but there are already 17 different Chinese postage stamps with that Chinese landmark.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
