This photo reminds me of some kind of “Count the trends!” game you might find in a fashion-themed issue of Highlights magazine.

A theme park in Guilin, China is giving a discount to women if they wear a skirt shorter than 38 centimeters. Merryland Resort’s Love Miniskirts discount runs for the next two months and is the sixth year it has thrown the event. “The stipulation aims to encourage female visitors to showcase their beauty in summer,” the deputy manager of the park, told Shanghai Daily newspaper. As you can see in the video above, women actually get their skirts measured with rulers before entering the park. Seems reminiscent of Catholic school rules to me, but in a completely opposite, exploitative way. Anyway, that theme park must be a creep’s paradise! Do you think discounts for miniskirts are gross or would you happily don a miniskirt if it got you in the gates with a cheaper ticket? [Telegraph UK]
