The Aftereffects of Chinese Champagne

Was it all just a dream?

This postcard from Jingyi in Sanming, China is both happy-making and surreal. Issued by the State Postal Bureau and ostensibly a card to celebrate the new year (though sent to me several months late, no doubt to showcase the pretty girl), it has all the hallmarks of an acid trip.

I mean, come on — a pink cow? With horns? Rowing an umbrella through the clouds? And how about that kitty cat? Is it sleeping contentedly, or leaning over the side of the boat waiting to barf? Add in the hearts and clovers and you’re just a couple marshmallows short of a box of Lucky Charms.
