...the cremation fee is too high!

Not sure if the reporter asking the question was trying to trick the minister of civil affairs, since those who hold press conferences in China usually know what questions (or at least quite a number of them) will be put to them and prepare their answers accordingly.

When a question was put to the minister that "it is said dead pigs are floating in the rivers because the cremation fee is too high, true or not?", he actually answered "yes", followed by elaborate explanations.

Weird.

Most probably the reporter told the press conference that he was going to ask this question about high cremation fee -- about human beings! -- before he changed his mind and played a little trick.

More correctly, these dead pigs were dumped into the river as a challenge to the authority of the new rulers in the capital city.

Please don't shoot, I'm just a babe.
