"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.
They'd know they where being ripped off."

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.

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.

Obviously it's fake, guys, I mean come on!!

Look at the other articles in the site:

It's like The Onion. It's a joke site. No need to get all angry and upset over a fake, joke article. =3

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.

About letters. It derives from the Latin Alphabet. Both English Alphabet and French Alphabet uses the 26 letters of the modern latin alphabet. Some language use less letter.

Some use more.
And what does this have to do with anything, really?
You honestly think we wouldn't know this?

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.

American Letters?
I know this probably isn't real, but it wouldn't be funny if it was.

Not just English, but most of Europe use that alphabet too. I wonder if those invented words mean anything in another language.

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.
