Demotivational poster / demotivator description: Photoshopped scene from Tiananmen Square Massacre (it's in Beijing, China - yep, the very same city which hosted Summer Olympic Games 2008). Originally a man was holding down a tank column on it's way. You can watch the whole scene below.
This dude has balls of steel, you must admit it. Now think for yourselves is there anything in your pathetic life comparable to this? I highly doubt ;) The big creature comes in fact from Japan and it's a Domo - the official mascot of Japan's NHK television station. It was photoshopped countless times and I can safely assume that it become meme on it's own ;) Below you can watch the birth of domo.

Joke from 1989:
Paramount leader Deng Xiaoping, then President Yang Shangkun and Prime Minister Li Peng (three leaders closely associated with the Tiananmen square crackdown) found their car blocked by a cow in the road one day.
Li yells: ‘‘If you don’t move, I’ll declare martial law!’’
The cow ignores him.
Yang yells: ‘‘I’ll call out the military!’’ The cow stares blankly.
Deng whispers in its ear, and the cow runs off, terrified.
‘‘I said I would name him general secretary of the Communist Party,’’ said Deng, who had already sacked two party bosses.
