Our Chinese culture week continues. Several of my colleagues have problem pronouncing the Chinese words for thank you and you are welcome. So I came up with the following lesson for Chinese 101:
Thank you = 謝謝 which is pronounced Shieh Shieh. But since most non-Chinese people have problem pronouncing it, I told my colleagues to say -- Shit Shit
You are welcome = 不謝 in Chinese which is pronounced Bu Shieh. Again to simplify it, I told my colleagues to say -- Bull Shit
Seriously, their Chinese is vastly improved after taking Chinese 101 from 貓眯老師 (or Teacher Cat).
