We are not good in gymnastics
We are not good in table tennis
But we are good in soccer

Somehow I have a feeling this was created by Chinese fans and handed over.

    Can’t be Chinese fans. A Chinese fan would write something like:

    LOL … absolutely love it

    If there is ever a China bashing subject I truly enjoy, this will be it.

    It won’t surprise me though if this turns out to be the idea from a Chinese fan.

    Some acute observer noted on wenxuecity.com’s sports forum that in the sign an upward stroke is missing in the Chinese character 操, and two little dots are absent in each of the 球 character. As we all understand what these three pieces aim to depict when putting together, the missing parts are indeed what are lacking in the Chinese men’s national soccer team.

    Too much of a “sophisticated” innuendo for Nigerian fans to come up with, don’t ya think? 🙂

    So much for the ban on banners at Olympic venues.

    Here’s my idea for the next Nigerian sign, which should show the front to get the TV camera’s attention and then the back to get the IOC’s attention:

    Front: 尼日利亚万岁
    Back: 何可欣十四岁

    That is funny and original; not terribly offensive since it’s somewhat self-depricating.

    you never forget about mentioning HeKeXin whatever we are talking about. I know you have more to say

    (Bob’s cryptic explanation that it’s some kind of penis joke that’s beyond the Nigerians doesn’t convince me…)

  10. DJ Says:


    It’s just a guess. The tone is rather consistent with Chinese fans’ sarcastic attitude against men’s soccer team.

  11. Wahaha Says:

    This is from sinvision.net, even funnier

    For those who can not read the Chinese joke posted by Wahaha, please go to Black and White Cat for a translation and explanation.


    Sun Bin also had an entry, accompanied by a video clip of this joke told on Phoenix TV.
