Talking abt making fun of a person’s name, I’m also guilty of it … …
An ex-colleague of mine is an Indonesian Chinese, his surname is Suparman; so u can guess what i called him, much to his annoyance.
To “add salt to the injury”, his name sounds like ‘Xian2 Dan4’ (salted egg) … together with the surname, can u guess what is it???
It is … …
‘Ultra-man’, because that’s what Ultra-man is known in Mandarin:
咸蛋超人’Xian2 Dan4 Chao1 Ren2′.
Yah, I’m mean. I knew he disliked it, so I stopped teasing him then.
Now retribution on my daughter … … 🙂
