Everyone in the mountain commune in Kunming, southern China, must be under 4ft 3ins tall - and they run their own police force and fire brigade from their 120 residents.
Now the group has turned itself into a tourist attraction by building mushroom houses and living and dressing like fairy tale characters.

I used to date a dwarf.
I was nuts over her...
Okay their own police force and fire brigade.... that is just going to bring up the image of the Munchkin Men..
Odd, I thought that was the normal height of most Chinese.
Thats really bad. really bad.
That there is a low blow.
Do you reckon anyone in the village would notice a 6 foot guy walking around?
Me too. It was a long time ago.
They are dressing like fictional characters and living in mushroom houses to encourage tourism. I don’t think the Munchkin comparison will offend them!
In other news, Dennis Kucinich has announced he will be running for mayor of a small mountain village somewhere in China...
I thought about it
an awful lot
And, I couldn't think of any reason
that didn't seem small...
That would definitely encourage tourism or terrorism.
that was a short story
Stole it. Bet you did, too.
Man, so many hippies will be going there to take LSD and blow their minds.
Yes but can they do cartwheels?
I was told by a friend was a village for dwarfs in Fort Worth Texas. He told us many things. It was built just down the street from Van Cliburn’s house. He told many stories as I mentioned before. One day he said he would take us to see the village. He drove us to a really upscale part of old Fort Worth. Went through a large gate and there was a large mansion. The front lawn was tree lined and about one acre in size with a cobble stone drive around it. As soon as we went through the gate we turned off on a asphalt road hidden by trees and went down into a small tree cover valley. There really was a small village there just a short drive around the big house in a meadow in the back yard. Well they were really the playhouses for the kids of the people in the big house. There was a store , fire station, a few house and others. The kids were grown now and I guess waiting for grand kids to come along. . Next we visited the real houses the three kids lived in now. They were also in the parents backyard but they were much smaller than the big house and much larger than the small houses. You could say they were just right. He drove us by the house he said belonged to Van Cliburn, he had been there many times to open the house up when Van would return to town. He also has come up with several uses of aluminum foil at his own house. He had been living with his parents but they decided to move out.
They NEVER have to chase down criminals, they just slap the cuffs on when the criminals are rolling on the ground laughing.
ok, twice, that one’s done. Put it away. (snicker)
