Why Chinese Families Are Screwed

In Chinese, father is 爸. It’s made up of two words: 父 (fu) and 巴 (bar). FUBAR.

How about mother? 妈. Again, two words: 女 (female) 马 (horse).

Chinese families.

Tiananmen, 3-4 June, 1989

天安门
本信存
天天闻

I wrote a poem in Chinese tonight. I don’t even speak the flippin’ language. Probably why it started like this:

天安门
性永恒
天天闻

The second line can easily be interpreted as “sex forever”. So I changed it:

天安门
本性存
天天闻

Now it looked right. But a friend said simply, “信”. I was like, WHOAH. That adds a pun, at least two layers of meaning and a whole lot more ambiguity. Genius. And so a poem was complete. In English:

Tiananmen
Original belief remains
Hear it every day

Lots lost in translation but that’s ok.

Malaya. By me.Malaya. By me.

Malaya. By me.

Remember these? Our parents used to beat the life out of us with these canes for being disobedient. If anyone thinks Tiger Mom was anything formidable, you haven’t seen the rest of the Asian iceberg. (Campbell soup for scale and for whatever other interpretation you like. I think we really ought to use Campbells as a standard of measurement in art.)
My great-grandfather had a son who was an opium addict. He was so wrecked in his heart by this terrible addiction he dragged his son out into the yard to cane some sense into him. He beat him so violently and for so long he died. This is why figures like Lin Zexu, who fought the British in the Opium Wars, are such heroes. Horrifying, the things imperialists do.
Anyway, I got these from a neighbourhood store. I bought every colour available. Yep, parents still aren’t sparing the rod.Remember these?
