CHINA – Nobody likes being stuck in traffic – but a nine day traffic jam is a different story!
Better call the boss and tell him that you’re going to be a little bit late. Better yet, better take a couple of personal days for an “unexpected vacation.” That’s the case if you’ve found yourself in China for the past nine days. Thousands of vehicles have been bogged down in a more than 100-kilometre traffic jam leading to Beijing.
The Beijing-Tibet expressway slowed to a crawl on August 14 due to a spike in traffic by cargo-bearing heavy trucks heading to the capital, and compounded by road maintenance work that began five days later. All of these are being used as more proof to China’s growing road congestion woes.
Weekly World News knows better than this, a we know that a traffic jam of these proportions has to be caused by something extraordinary. A nine day traffic jam is epic and there has to be more to the story. And more there was and WWN got to the bottom of it.
It seems as though hotter-than-Hades supermodel Larissa Riquelme is behind this massive traffic jam. In an effort to raise her profile and re-capture her popularity from the World Cup – Riquelme decided to run naked down the Beijing-Tibet expressway. Riquelme set her plan into action on August 14 – and a nine-day traffic jam has resulted.
“I am speechless,” said one motorist. “The sun was pretty bright when I saw her and I thought it was an angel descending from heaven. I wanted to run out of my car and touch her – and feel her powers – but my wife was strongly apposed.”
“I thought it was the end of the world,” another motorist told WWN. “By sending that heavenly beauty down to earth, it was God’s way of breaking the news to us in the best way imaginable. If that was my last image, I’d be ok with the end of the world.”
Riquelme has left motorists and maintenance workers in an utter trance. China has sent therapists and motivational speakers to the site to try and help all individuals regain their focus.
WWN reached out to the supermodel, but there wasn’t much success. Her spokeswoman said they are trying to keep a low profile until they are out of the country. The Chinese government is all too happy with this publicity stunt.
A good start for a low profile would probably be putting on some clothes – just a thought.
