A French guy friend has been learning Chinese from me. One day I used “hehe” and “23333” when chatting with him online. He asked me what they meant. I said it was a compliment for you meaning “you are so funny.” Tonight he and I met with Chinese friends. After my friend said something, he articulated, “Hehe, 23,333.” [微笑]Dead silence.

法国小哥最近在跟着我学中文,有天我和他聊天时发了句呵呵,23333,他问我什么意思。我说就是夸你超好笑的意思。今天晚上和他一起见中国朋友,只见朋友说完话后,他口齿清晰又标准发出了一句“呵呵,两万三千三百三十三。”[微笑]全场死一般沉寂。
