Top 10 popular Internet phrases in China in 2014

It's already December, you know. So it's time to do a year-end summary! According to "Evening Peak News" of Voice of China, Chinese netizens have summed up top 10 network buzzwords of 2014, listed in no particular order. Dare you say you've never said one of them?

12月来了,是时候做年末总结了!据中国之声《新闻晚高峰》报道,有网友总结了2014的十大网络流行语,排名不分先后,你敢说自己木有说过吗!

1. 有钱就是任性 Rich and Bitch

Have you noticed that so many people claimed themselves "rich and bitch" in friends circle and Sina weibo. What a "malicious" world! The buzzword originates from a real event: In April, Mr. Liu spent 1760 yuan online buying a health care product. Soon after, he got calls from a stranger who persuade him to buy other matched medicines. In the following four months, Mr. Liu remitted a total of 540,000 yuan to the swindler. He said that he had already found himself cheated when he was fooled out of 70,000 yuan. "I just wanted to see how much could they take from me!"

最近有木有发现,朋友圈和微博上到处都有人说自己"有钱,任性",感觉到世界森森的恶意呀。这个流行语来源于一个真实事件:今年4月份,老刘在网上花了1760元买了一款保健品。不久之后,他接到一个陌生号码的电话说,必须再买其他配药才会有疗效。接下来四个月,老刘一共给骗子汇去54万元。老刘说,在他被骗了7万元的时候,已经发现自己被骗了。"我就是想看看,他们究竟能骗我多少钱!"

2. 也是醉了! Are you kidding me?

The father of the buzzword can be traced back to Linghu Chong, a character in Jin Yong's "Swordsman". He satirizes others' flattering by saying "The moment I see those who flatter me would I feel so uncomfortable as if I were drunk。" Then a group of DOTA players often use this phrase. No matter one's skill is good or bad, they will say "Are you kidding me?"

这一神回复的创始人,可以追朔到金庸《笑傲江湖》里的令狐大侠。爱开玩笑的令狐冲曾这样讽刺别人的谄媚:"我一看到那些人的谄媚样,可就浑身难受,摇摇晃晃几欲醉倒。"之后一群DOTA玩家们对此词情有独钟,不管对方的技术很渣,还是技术很牛,小伙伴们都喜欢说:"呵呵,这货的技术,我也是看醉了"、"哇,这大神的技术,我也是醉了"。

3. 这画面太美我不敢看It's so beautiful that I'm too scared to open it.

This is another joke in which unsightly things are intended to be good-looking. The buzzword comes from a sentence of Jolin's song "Prague Square", which was extended to describe weird things. For example, when you see a very shocking picture, you can use this sentence to express the visual or psychological impact.

还有一种调侃,把并不好看的事物说成是美。这个流行语出自蔡依林的一首歌《布拉格广场》,"这画面太美我不敢看",被网友引申为对奇葩事物的形容,比如看到一张很雷人的图片,以此表达自己看到这张图片受到的视觉或心理冲击。

4. 只想安静地做个美男子 I just want to be a quiet and handsome man.

This phrase comes from the mini-drama "never expected." In one episode, Tang Monk rescued the Monkey King from under Five Elements Mountain and they embarked on a pilgrimage to the West to obtain Buddhist scriptures. The director who plays the monk has a catchphrase—"I still want to be a quiet and handsome man."This phrase is often used by ugly and thick boys for self-ridicule.

这句流行语来自一部迷你剧《万万没想到》。其中一集讲到唐僧把孙悟空从五指山下救出来,去西天取经的桥段,导演"叫兽易小星"在剧中扮演唐僧,有一句挂在嘴边的口头禅"我还是想安静地当一个美男子"。 为何要安静,因为自己很闹挺,是个2B,为什么做美男子,因为自己是个丑B,因此这句话常常被长得丑的又很2的男生用来自我调侃。

5. 那么问题来了。So the question is……

"So the question is…" is derived from the advertising of Lanxiang Vocational school. In October, Zhang Le, a member of NetEase comment zone, deliberately commented with a long story in a news thread. At the end of the story there would be a sentence: So the question is: which is the strongest in Excavator Technology? Then after the screenshots of the thread was posted to the microblogging and friends circle, it has been widely reproduced, which make the ad of Lanxiang popular again.

"那么问题来了",最早就是来源于蓝翔高级技工学校的广告。2014年10月,网易评论区的会员张乐,刻意在一个新闻跟帖发表留言,这些留言大多是一个很长的故事,但是在故事的结尾都会来上一句,那么问题来了,挖掘机技术到底哪家强?而后跟帖的截图被发布到微博和朋友圈之后,得到了广泛的转载,让蓝翔广告又火了一把。

6. 且行且珍惜 It is to be cherished.

On March 31, 2014, Ma Yili responded to Wen Zhang's cheating on Sina Weibo. It reads as follows: Being in love is easy, being married is not. It is to be cherished. Soon many Internet users began to make sentences with this pattern. For example, "Eating is easy, losing weight is not. It is to be cherished."

2014年3月31日,马伊琍微博回应文章出轨事件,全文如下:恋爱虽易,婚姻不易,且行且珍惜。迅速有众多网友开始用"且行且珍惜"造句。比如:吃饭虽易,减肥不易,且吃且珍惜。

7. 不作死就不会死 No zuo, no die.

The pattern of "contract for fishpond", which comes from the TV play "Boss & Me" is also on the list. The boss Zhang Han said, "I want the whole world knows that you have contacted the fishpond," with Zhao Liying in his arms. "Sb. work so hard" was a very simple word of mouth. After Cao Ge mentioned it many times in Where Are We Going, Dad?, the expression has been widely spread on the Internet. Besides, how can "no zuo no die" be excluded from the top 10 buzzwords of 2014?

还有源自电视剧《杉杉来了》的"承包鱼塘体"。在剧中,腹黑总裁张翰怀抱赵丽颖,说出的一句台词:"我要让全世界知道,这个鱼塘被你承包了"。"也是蛮拼的"本是一句很简单的口头语,在《爸爸去哪儿2》中被曹格多次提及,使其发扬光大,在网络上被大家所熟知并广泛传播。而且,十大流行语怎能不提"No zuo no die"?
