Comments from Sina Weibo:


No, uncle [referring to an older man], we won’t ‘get together’ with you.


Why is it that people can make fun [spoof, satirize] of famous historical people and their current president but in China there are all sorts of saints? [doge][doge][doge][doge] Please go see if foreigners are so serious when people are just playing around. [See below for context]


Why are you glass-hearted saints so fucking annoying?? [拜拜][拜拜] Look at how things are abroad, [拜拜] how happy [carefree people are when it comes to satire]. [拜拜] Why the fuck can’t we be like this? [拜拜] Just how cautious and colorless [nervous and boring] your life must be. [拜拜] Why don’t you get lost, okay? [doge]


Dragging morality into everything, can you people not be so pretentious?


The perplexed expression on the last one is obviously asking, which school provides the best excavator skills?


Seeing all sorts of saints laughing and then beginning to oppress others with morality.


Is it good for you guys to use the revolutionary older generation to amuse those born after it? Please be respectful of them…


To be honest, there are a lot of things and thinking of that era that cannot be casually made fun of. I admit the original poster has talent, but, what you did is lacking in propriety.


Fuck, no, uncle, we won’t ‘get togehter’ with you.


The ninth image: Doctor! I want implants to make them this big! [嘻嘻][嘻嘻][嘻嘻][嘻嘻]
