Chinese stockbroker et al. joke

Picked up this story up from a very serious listserv I belong to and thought I should pass it along:
A crowd of people are standing by a deep, fast-flowing river.
A government official falls in. “Help, help!” he screams. “I’m drowning. Please save me!” The crowd turn their backs, and the official drowns.
Then a stockbroker falls in. “Help, help!” he screams. “I’m drowning. Please save me!” The crowd pick up rocks from the river bank and throw them at the stock broker.  He drowns.
Finally, a China national football (soccer) player falls in. “Help, help!” he screams. “I’m drowning. Please save me!” Everybody immediately jumps in to save the footballer, dragging him to safety on the river bank.
“Why did you save me when you let the government official and the stockbroker drown?” he asks.
“We weren’t saving you!” they reply. “We were saving our water from contamination.”
