Currently, a post titled "I had a flash marriage with a Taoist nun during the National Day holidays in Longhu Mountain and my happiness is shown in the pictures" caused a stir on the Internet, according to

The person who posted the article is a travel lover who participated in the Tent Festival at Longhu Mountain during the National Day holidays. This tour caused a series of surprising stories.

He fell in love with a nun and got married with her five days later. They received their marriage license on Oct 10, 2010. Both the legendary experience of the netizen and the frustrated life of the nun attracted a large number of netizens.

Suddenly, Miaomiao, an ordinary Taoist nun of Longhu Mountain, has become the current hottest Internet celebrity.

Many netizens responded to the post. "Man, you are really great! I envy you so much because you really married a nun!" a netizen said.

"It is your destiny that allowed you two to meet each other and get together. This can only be found by accident and not through seeking. The nun is so beautiful ,and I can see that she is very happy. My best wishes for your future happiness," said another netizen.

"I like Miaomiao the most compared with other Internet celebrities such as Little Yueyue and Sister Feng because she is kind and pure-hearted and is also very pretty," a netizen named "Xiaoxi" said.

Miaomiao is different from Sister Phoenix and Little Yueyue, who deliberately took advantage of the vulgarization of the Internet culture and netizens' subconscious appreciation of ugliness to gain instant fame.

It is Miaomiao's heart-warming experience that made her an overnight Internet celebrity. Her popularity is of positive significance to society and will help guide the public's aesthetic standards back on track.

Yu Guoming, deputy dean of the School of Journalism at Renmin University of China, said in an interview that Sister Feng and Little Yueyue represent the vulgarization of the Internet culture, which is not only a cultural phenomenon but also an early warning. Fundamentally, the reason behind the vulgarization is that under the enormous social pressure, people need something to amuse themselves with. Yu believes the key to curbing the vulgarization is to establish correct mainstream cultural values, and the fact that Miaomiao became famous overnight has shown that mainstream cultural values still prefer sincerity, goodness and niceness.
