Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior: Because Their Daughters Win Competitions–Even Pole Dancing Competitions–That’s Why
Natasha Wang, 35, has been crowned the United States Pole Dancing Champion of 2011. Wang, who isn’t a stripper, has no dance background, and works at a PR firm in Los Angeles, came away from last weekend’s 3rd annual national championship with a $5,000 prize for her routine based on the movie Black Swan. (And, being Asian, of course the movie’s story about one’s obsessive drive to be perfect spoke to her.) Her win also includes an all-expense paid trip to participate in the Miss Pole Dance Australia 2012 competition.
You can see part of Wang’s championship routine here in this CBS News report:
Even though the gyrating, the heels, and skimpy outfits some of the contestants employ–not to mention the dudes in the audience creaming their pants–still scream “stripper dancing” to me, this shit looks hard as fuck so who am I to judge? Let it be a sport, skeptics!
But can you imagine the conversation Wang had with her Hardass Asian Mom about her win?
NATASHA: Mom! I won a national competition!!!
HAM: Wah! Congratulations! What kind of competition?
NATASHA: There was a $5,000 prize!
HAM: What kind of gift you going to buy Mommy for Mother’s Day? HAHA just kidding!
NATASHA: And I get to go to Australia next year!!
HAM: Ooh, Great Barrier Reef! (clears throat) What kind of competition?
NATASHA: Uh, uh…well, you know the Beijing Circus?
HAM: Do I know Beijing Circus? Of course I know Beijing Circus!
NATASHA: So, it’s kind of like that.
HAM: What is name of competition?
NATASHA: They’re not really that into names, per se.
HAM: What are you not telling Mommy? You sound very fishy.
NATASHA: Mo-om! All that matters is that I got first place, right?
HAM: Are you on drugs?!
NATASHA: Did I mention that I won $5,000?
HAM: Oh my god, it’s worse than drugs!!!
