If you’re look­ing for a fake boyfriend on your trip to the Ori­ent con­sider this. Matthew Fan, 27 works full-time as an accounts man­ager and says he started rent­ing out his fake boyfriend ser­vices to make some extra money. He charges $131 per day in main­land China, $246 per day in Hong Kong, with a three-day min­i­mum and a require­ment that the client pays for his accom­mo­da­tions, meals, trans­porta­tion and other expenses.  Fan said he has a girl­friend who does not know about his side job. “I only rent my time, not my body — you know what I mean,” he said.  Yeah, in the states it’s called an escort service.

An Ital­ian man vis­ited Ger­many for Okto­ber­fest five weeks ago, parked his car, and started par­ty­ing. Unfor­tu­nately, because of the mad­ness of the fes­ti­val – and his drunk­en­ness – he for­got where he parked. He begged local cops to help. He even offered a $270 reward. He returned to Munich three times to search the streets for his Volk­swa­gen Golf. No dice. After more than a month of hus­tling and wor­ry­ing, some­one finally saw a pic­ture of his car in a news­pa­per ad he placed – and pointed his car out to him.
