Kidney Stone Gate: Latest Updates & Funny Sanlu Photoshops

Sanlu Photoshop: The Thing: I drank Sanlu since I was small. 我从小就喝三鹿奶粉.

The Thing: “I drank Sanlu milk powder ever since I was small.”

Kidney Stone Gate Update:

  • There are now thousands of babies with kidney stones and four babies have died.
  • A government test of all the Chinese milk brands have shown that many contain melamine, including other big brands like Mengniu and Yili.
  • Starbucks, which used Mengniu, will not serve milk anymore and recommends soy milk to customers.
  • Many Hebei government officials have been arrested.
  • Sanlu’s General Manager, Tian Wenhua, has also been arrested.
  • Her daughter has run away to Switzerland, after her mom told her that she has already prepared everything for her.
  • The government has instructed the media and BBS forums to limit discussion about Sanlu and the melamine milk problem.

These pictures are collected from the Mop topic, “Sanlu Photoshop Pictures Collection, Continuously Updated (everyone join in),” before it was recently deleted:

When the Sanlu brand melamine milk powder incident happened, some people were happy that it was not the Yili brand, another big dairy products company:

Of course, after the government tests, Yili was also found to have melamine in their products so they were not innocent either.

Melamine damages the kidneys over time and causes kidney stones as well as difficulty urinating. That is why many of these photoshops will make jokes about Sanlu affecting peeing.

Jokes involving Sanlu have become very popular ever since the melamine baby formula milk powder incident happened. Many posters on BBS forums often reply to topics with only pictures. Here are two Photoshops used when commenters sometimes use when they disagree with the “lou zhu” or the person who started the topic:

Sanlu Photoshop: 楼祝贺了三鹿奶粉!!

“Lou zhu” drank Sanlu milk powder! [he is a stone statue]

Sanlu Photoshop: 天哪!镂主在喝三鹿而且喝得好开心!

“Oh my god! ‘Lou zhu’ is drinking Sanlu, and is even drinking it happily!”

Mop is well-known for having many members that are good at using Photoshop. For example, when someone on KDS requests a picture be photoshopped, others often tell them to go ask on Mop. There are some more Sanlu Photoshops on NetEase, if it has not yet been deleted.

Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.

  • lmao @ liu xiang’s olympic picture xD

    Boy, these people need to work on their humor. Not one of these made me laugh or even smile. Is this humor the best China has to offer?

  • Kai

    @ dave:

    Aw come on, some of them are pretty funny. Maybe its a pop culture divide or something. Though, personally, I think the very last one is just funny in of itself because of the art. Bush’s defense system? That’s funny. Putin? He’s always funny…when not looking outright sinister. Prison Break? Little boy getting his head cut off? Come on, that’s pretty funny just because it wasn’t noticed, right?

    Maybe it is just the translations. “Pop culture divide”?? I don’t think so.

    But anyway enjoy your laughs:)


  • krdr

    I liked first one. But any other, which involves kids, are funny, but gross.

  • mark liu

    those Japanese cartoon adaptions are god-damned funny

  • Kai

    @ dave:

    Yeah, humor often gets lost in translation. The reason I said maybe pop-culture divide is because its quite true. Think of the icanhazcheezeburger or lolcat stuff. Not everyone gets it, but for those who do, they’re damn funny. With the photoshops above, the fu rong jie jie stuff or the snorting kingfen stuff are pretty squarely China pop-culture, much less the photoshop blaming Sanlu for the joke that is the Chinese national football/soccer team. The Bush and Putin stuff are political pop-culture. I imagine those would resonate with most people even outside of China.

    @ mark liu:

    LoL, yeah, totally. You have to hand it to Japanese anime for being able to exaggerate to a whole new level. Hilarious stuff.

  • Bong

    This website very disrespect to China and Chinese culture. Much shame for you, piggy writer who attack Chinese greatness in momentary time of weak.

  • Bob

    Bong is a dumbass. You’re weak now because your own scandals made your country weak. Why blame others when it started with your own people? Stfu.

  • SniperWZ

    I’m Chinese and I don’t think this website is intended to attack China; the most outraged people and the most affected people in this scandal are fellow Chinese…we really do need to address these serious issues because it is in our own self-interest, China will become stronger after it tackles these problems, and that is the goal here.

    It may not be pretty exposing these kind of things, but remember, it’s better to solve problems than to ignore them, it’s important that we’ll always have the last laugh…

    What the [email protected]?! kids are dieing and mothers are greaving over this. Please People get real and take back your souls

  • Johnny Sickomoe

    I find it funny…

    When carefore said something about Chinese. Millions protested and stopped people from entering shops. There were many

    When a Chinese poisoned the milk of infants… People write on the internet and say, “Well, this lets address this in rational mannor.”

    I think that the way Sanlu is being handled is fine. But, I just find it weird that carrefore and CNN comments can make people go into the streets, while actual milk poisoning causes photoshops.

    love the dig at Chinese men soccer team!

    Let me tell you which 23 are the funniest:

    #1 and #2 on the above list actually made me laugh out loud.
