There's an amusing, if slightly cruel joke doing the rounds in Asia right now.
The story goes that the South Korean coach goes to see God and asks how long it will be before his team can win the World Cup. Maybe 50 years, God replies, and the Korean departs in tears.
The Japanese coach goes and asks the same question. Perhaps 100 years, God says, and the Japanese also departs tearfully.
The Chinese coach too puts the question - and God bursts into tears!
