KFC now has rice topped meat and vegetables, and promoting it as having “The taste of mom’s cooking”. Netizens harshly reacted, “Does your mom give you so little rice? Is she your stepmother?”

In order to avoid washing dishes, my lazyass roommate came up with the idea to just eat instant noodles.

While watching Titanic in a Shenzhen movie theater yesterday, just as the ship hit the iceberg, the power cut out! Some guy in the row behind cried out, “What the fuck! It’s this easy to time travel?!” 


If you meet a guy from the national football team, marry him! South America is too far away, they’re family men, insisting for decades on staying in Asia. Such men should be cherished!

[Note: This bitingly sarcastic news headline (above) is a criticism of China’s national football team, widely hated by frustrated long-suffering Chinese football fans, for their consistent inability to compete successfully. This headline and article appeared in the news following the Chinese national team’s 1-0 loss to Iraq in 2011, dashing China’s World Cup appearance hopes yet again.]

I’ve always envied my boyfriend like hell, for having the world’s best girlfriend…

Sina Weibo

[Note: This Chinese joke relies on Chinese homoephones or puns. Weibo, prounounced wei1 bo2 can mean both “microblog” and “slight erection”, whereas wei ruan is literally “micro” and “soft”.]

Microsoft and Slight Erection

[Note: Another joke relying on Chinese homophones, at Sina Weibo’s expenses. 新浪 (Sina) and 心浪 (flutter of the heart, a sexual yearning) are both pronounced xin1 lang4. 微博 (microblog) and 微勃 (slight erection) are both pronounced wei1 bo2.]
