The Oompa Loompas sing about this

Lovely story from China  today that reminded me of the song from "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". Your remember the verse ( I think character was Max). 
What do you get from a glut of TV?
A pain in the neck and an IQ of three
Why don't you try just reading a book?
Or can you just not bear to look?

You'll get no. . . You'll get no. . . You'll get no commercials

Anyway his name may not have been Max but man in China has sued Chinese TV actress Zhao Wei because her intense stares from her role as Tiger Mom have caused him "spiritual distress".  Apparently Zhao has a number of roles where her gazes, peeking and other eye movements are a feature of her acting.  

Do we think the Chinese have been influenced too much by U.S?
Reading a book is an option
Last word to Oompa Loompas 
Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do
If you are wise you'll listen to me
