Funereal is as funereal does:
CHINA may be giving striptease funerals the last rites after officials arrested five people and ordered an end to the practise.
Strip shows have been commonly used to attract more mourners to funerals, as villagers believe a crowded send-off brings more honor to the deceased, Xinhua news agency said.
....Wealthier families in villages often employ two troupes of performers to try to draw a crowd at the funerals of their loved ones.
....A hotline was also set up for residents to report on "funeral misdeeds," it said. The funeral striptease is also a popular custom in parts of Taiwan.
