Comments on Sina:


I really admire these people’s fathers.


Many people were born in the 90s, from the look of it their parents are pretty young, why did they give them such absurd names?


Blame the parents for being uncultured, gave really unprofessional names.


I know two brothers named Xian Youqian (have money first) and Xian Youquan (have power first).


Why are all the boarding passes from Chongqing Jiangbei Airport?


Using the last name to comment “very niubi”.


Haha! Really deserve to be beaten. Alipay, so avant garde, hurry up and sue them. Come orgasm/climax, he must’ve gone crazy wanting to orgasm.


Some are real, some are photoshopped.


Haha, so funny.


This really opened my eyes, the world is so big, anything is imaginable!


Fuck, it is clearly photoshopped looking at the pictures.


So funny, their parents’ are so irresponsible.


Don’t look at just a person’s name, stop getting a laugh out of other people’s names, if it was you, how would you think, mister.


My friend’s name is Zhang Gaochao (Zhang orgasm/climax).

    Some of these are pretty good, has anyone else here read
    “Outrageous Chinese”?

    • YourSupremeCommander

      Yeah I read it, the funniest part is when Baymax farted on Mario’s face.

  • Ken Morgan

    It’s only bad if the person is born now and is named those things. 20-30 years ago those memes probably meant something else entirely.

    How can ID be posted on the Internet? Privacy rights, anyone?

    Okay, I admit it, the Datuo Shi one really got me.

    Most, if not all the boarding passes seem fake. Someone working at the airport counter got really bored… That or all the fockers from Chingqing are wacked in the head when naming their kids.
    (All originated from same airport).

    A man in the UK got involved in a dispute with his bank and wound up changing his legal name to “Yorkshire Bank PLC are Fascist Bastards.” They had to print this on his cheque book and all correspondence.

    Which was nice.
