Confucius Lottery Draws Ire

Confucius, the ancient Chinese philosopher who prodded his fellow countrymen to seek their fortunes in a decent manner, would now find his portraits and sermons printed on lottery tickets.

Late last month, lottery stands in east China's Shandong province began selling Confucius-themed tickets that carry a top prize of 300,000 yuan.

But the tickets have drawn ire from netizens and columnists who claim that putting Confucius' image on lottery tickets has tarnished the image of the wise man who lived more than 2,000 years ago.
