"Have you ever seen a cup made of wood?", an American asked. "Not yet!", a Chinese answered. "Then why does the Chinese character '杯' contain the radical wood '木'? ", the American continued. "But there is '不' next to it. Therefore, it means that a cup is not made of wood.", the Chinese retorted.

Guoan and Shenhua had a football match in Beijing Workers Stadium. Iker Casillas was present on the site. After the match a reporter asked, "What was the most impressive thing about this match?" Casillas replied, "I'm wondering why all the people in the stadium have kept calling the name XAVI." (In Spanish, XAVI is pronounced similar to "shabi". Shabi means "fool" in Chinese. )
I went to the office bathroom the other day. I had just squatted as I noticed a mosquito buzzing around me. It flew closer and closer to my face. I couldnt stand it. What if the mosquito bit me on the face? I decided to try to blow it away. I breathed in deeply, and damn, I sucked the mosquito into my nose. I pressed one side of my nose and try to breathe it out.
It turned out to be useless.

On a bus in a small town, a little boy aged about 3 or 4 sat in front of me. His mother and I stood beside him. The bus would broadcast at each stop, "please offer your seat to the aged, the weak, the sick and the disabled." Then, the boy asked her mother, "Mum, what does 'the weak' mean?" His mother thought for a moment and said, "It means mentally handicapped people." As the boy was looking around and saw me. I smiled at him. Then he suddenly stood up and said, "Uncle, please sit here."
