This blog translates Chinese Internet slang and humor. The source is Sina Weibo, a major social media website in China.

Chinese Internet slang is closely connected with Chinese Internet humor. My goal is to compile a Chinese-English dictionary of Chinese Internet slang. I define a Chinese Internet slang term as a Chinese slang term that first goes viral on China’s Internet and then gradually makes its way into everyday conversation.

When a post includes an Internet slang term, I use the Chinese character(s) and Pinyin (with tone marks) of the slang term as the post title. In the post, I explain the slang term in English and sometimes illustrate its usage(s) with a joke, quip, picture, or video.

My other blog, “In My Melody”, translates Chinese pop music into English.

One thought on “About

  1. I found this site through China Smack. Your articles are great, and I know many people who’d enjoy it. My question — you mentioned that you could use this as a tool to learn Chinese. However, I don’t see links to the original Chinese articles. Any way you could include those?

    Many thanks.
