Skinny Man From China Is Now The 30th Most Powerful Person In The World According To Forbes

Jack Ma

Hangzhou, China: Chinese English teacher turned e-commerce mogul Jack Ma, whose personal net worth swelled to almost $30 Billion USD earlier this year, is now the 30th most powerful person in the world according to a list released by Forbes.

E-commerce enthusiasts and body builders have labelled this an astonishing achievement for a man whose staple diet is noodles. Former Forbes non-contributor Anshul Srivastava, best known for interviewing Santa Claus on his show Screwing with CJ, tells us that once this list is released Jack Ma could be filling up forms for the World’s Strongest Man competition.

Ma rose to prominence earlier this year selling stolen garments and other products on his e-commerce portal Alibaba. His company boasts of an amazing business model wherein he employs 40 thieves that steal and deliver goods to his offices in mainland China and the same are then repackaged and rebranded and listed on the Alibaba e-commerce portal.

According to long time China critic and Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, the fact that Alibaba and its 40 thieves model has worked for Jack Ma is no surprise because China has always been adept at capturing local markets like India using its listing of cheap products which have often stolen the thunder from top brands in terms of the quality of product on offer for a price that is ridiculously affordable to the parsimonious Indian consumer.

On last count Jack Ma’s weight was reportedly a staggering 88 lbs. This measurement was obtained from his teaching days when he couldn’t afford the expensive dinners in his hometown of Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China. But our sources suggest that after the recent mega success Jack Ma’s weight has stabilized at 132 lbs, which clearly indicates that he has taken to the American burger and coke diet like a fish to water.
