    LOL....as someone with a good number of tats, this always makes me laugh. Why anyone would get this type of ink is beyond me. It ranks up there with Looney Tunes and Calvin tattoos. Serves you right.

    I`ve been to China, and unless you live the the freakin` Gutter, in which case you wouldn`t be worrying about Cool English Tattooes, by 3rd Grade Chinese kids know three languages, English, Mandarine and another Asian Dialect.

    BULL S**T.

    does it bother all the people in other english speaking countries win you see asian people associate all english related things with america? i live in the us and the way alot of canadians australians and british people talk about us i would think you wouldnt want to be grouped that way. i know this is fake but i see alot of things from asian countries were anything english related is associated only with America.

    some points are right. How would any chinese know the real meaning of FRUNK? I don`t. That I don`t know what a word means doesn`t make it fake. Otherwise I would know all of the world of the english dictionary.

    But the article is fake anyway. Did you read "McDonald`s Offers New "Dime Menu"" in the feature article on that site? it is complete bullpoo. The whole site is bullpoo. And what about "Black & Decker Sign "American Idol" Hosts to Endorsement Deal". Google it and realize that there is no media coverage on that.

    Th kids over there learn several different languages early on, one of them being English, since it can be used as a sort of lingua franca with the Western world.

    Surprised? Americans don`t learn other languages, except perhaps Spanish- and even that is only because there are people speaking nothing but Spanish in the country. Just because you didn`t learn three languages as a child doesn`t mean other countries work the same. I personally learned English, Russian, Swahili and Georgian before I was 10.

    sprink, you are my hero.

    Fake, fake fake. There is still a great deal of stigma surrounding tattoos in China. They are NOT popular with the younger crowd. They`re associated with prisons and gangs, and no self-respecting 20-something would do anything to marr their body and risk it affecting their ability to be employed.

    As a side note, I`m surprised that a) no one has pointed out this is a repost, and b) no one has said something stupid about the *obviously* shopped photo.

    There is a program at the University I attend called 1-2-1 and it brings Chinese kids here to study for the two middle years. These are UNIVERSITY LEVEL students and many of them have a very low grasp of the English Language. The area you visited must have been incredibly affluent.

    OfflineCondemner

    Fake or not....what single word would mean "old soul with young spirit"...or "beautiful flower dancing in the wind"?

    In China, and probably a lot of languages, there are single words that mean whole phrases like that when they`re translated. Even in English, you can`t usually define a word with just one other word.

    "I take letters from American soda cans and candy wrappers and rearrange them into words. GWIPO is my number one favorite. TWARP is also pretty lucky good!"

    :-|.......can anyone unscramble either of those to make an english word you would see on an american soda can or wrapper, or an english word at all for that matter?

    I can unscramble TWARP into WRAPT (past tense of WRAP) but I don`t know why you would see that on a soda can or wrapper.

    Wow. Some people are really thick. How could you take this seriously? It is satire, and it is decently funny.

    Unless you read and understand a language you shouldn`t take someones word on the meaning of your tat.

    Tats are stupid in general. It serves you right if you have "Gerbil Testicals" tatted on your left arm in chinese thinking it means something else.

    Sure your skull and cross bones looks good now, but wait until you get older and the thing starts looking like Elmer Fudd or Mr. Magoo with their head resting on limp penises.

    I was ROFL and thought it was true, then I saw "mustache found in rubble, thought to belong to Saddam Hussein." Still, very funny.

    It`s X, short for ecstasy. Not ex. This is a fake article written by a stupid idiot, and that photograph was photoshopped.
