Is “蓝瘦香菇” a kind of mushroom?

   

蓝瘦香菇 (lán shòu xiāng gū) became an internet phenomenon in China almost overnight. It is however not about mushroom. The "蓝瘦香菇" (meaning blue skinny mushroom literally) is pronounced very similar to "feel bad, want to cry" 难受,想哭 (nán shòu, xiǎng kū) in a local dialect from Nanning, a Guangxi city in southern China.

几乎是一夜间,“蓝瘦香菇”突然在中国社交网站上爆红。然而,跟香菇没什么关系。在中国南方城市南宁,“蓝瘦香菇"的方言发音跟“难受,想哭”很相似。

This all originate to a local young man who uploaded a video clip online to express his sad feelings on a bad date he had earlier that day. He repeatedly murmured how bad he feels at the moment and wants to cry. And he continued to ask why it.

这一切都源自于一个当地的年轻人上传了一段视频在网络上来表达他当天悲伤的心情。他反复嘀咕他很难受,很想哭。他一直问为什么……为什么……

But to the opposite, you just can't stop laughing after watching it because it does sound like he's kept saying " blue skinny mushroom".

但是相反,你看了以后会忍不住大笑,满脑子只剩下魔性的声音“蓝瘦,香菇”不停的重复。

The funny comparison in the clip inspires Chinese netizens' creativities into a memes wave.

这个搞笑视频让中国网友玩出了各种梗。

It is even printed on the NZ's 50 dollar note.

新西兰甚至还把这种蘑菇印在了50元钞票上。
