This game was pretty popular among youngsters and some adults a couple years ago. LKK refers to Lao3 Kho1kho4 which is a slang "old" in Taiwanese, GY for Jee1 Wai1 (Wai1 has the same pronunciation of Y ) which has the same meaning as 機車 Jee1 Chu1(please correct my romanization, tks!) :cool:


Thanks! But we need to teach you Hanyu Pinyin:
The sound 肌 and 機 is ji1, not gi1, so that's 小雞雞 xiao3 ji1ji1, and GY is ji1wai1.

And is GY stronger than 機車?

Finally, why are the locals always calling it 小 something? :fume: that's so insulting! :lol:

I'm more than happy with it here, mate. I hate it when when students scream to me "Teacher, so and so hit my little chicken!!" Damn Chinglish. That just wouldn't work anywhere outside of Taiwan, who in the hell would understand it.

It ("LP") is low-class. Of course, boys will be boys, and they go through a stage where words like boobies, dinky, etc. have a certain appeal. As parents, don't be fooled by the fact that the naughty words aren't in English, therefore they're ok. I don't know how strict you are, but genital references weren't generally allowed when I was a kid, unless one was referring to an injury, in which case, rules be damned, "that baseball hit me in the nuts!" :lol:

機車 (Ji Che, or "motorcycle") is a nice way of saying Ji Bai, which means cunt, but the connection has already been lost, in much the same way that "screw" has lost its association with "fuck". And saying something sucks no longer has the obscene connotation that it once had either.

That's true. Kids just find it funny saying it in Chinglish; they don't know that people who're not Taiwanese(or even some Taiwanese) have no idea what that is.

Hey man, no complaints here. Let them talk about their "xiao" bits and pieces if they like. I for one will be referring to my "da" LP from here on in. :wink:

Once when I was teaching in Kaohsiung, some of my students were playing the "get the foreign teacher to say something dirty" game. They wanted me to say "ji ji tou" and thought it was real funny until the Chinese teacher came in the room and they shut up really fast.
