SPRINGTIME FOR SADDAM – 杜中民

SPRINGTIME FOR SADDAM

Saddam is the name of a sanitation worker in Yutian county town.
He is 55 and he smokes cigarettes.
He can throw cigarette butts very far.
People have seen him shoot down sparrows from trees with cigarette butts.
He always cleans up the butts afterwards.

His talent has been discovered by a satellite TV station.
From his performances
he has gained some local fame.
He also has his own rules,
turns down invitations that would interfere with his work,
no matter how much they would pay him.
He only takes part in activities in his spare time.
“Sanitation work has made me what I am,
you have to know where you come from”, he says.
