WIRTW #553 (the “669” edition)

Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba (China’s answer to Amazon), claims that he has cracked the formula to a happy and productive workforce.

His answer? 669.

What does that mean? According to The Telegraph

“We want 669 in life. What is 669? Six times in six days; the emphasis is on nine,” he said at a company gathering, referring to sex, and using a play on words, as the word “nine” in Mandarin is a homophone for the word “long.”

He wants his employees to have long sex six times every six days. 

And you thought American employers had issues?
