Ouch! A sign raised by Nigerian fans at the Olympic men's soccer semi-final between Nigeria and Belgium

Translation:

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:
    我们没有张怡宁
    我们没有李小鹏
    但我们更没有谢亚龙!

    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.

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

    Why?

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

    rory,

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

    This is from sinvision.net, even funnier

    Phelps夺得8金,各国表示强烈不满,认为游泳比赛分为蛙泳、仰泳、蝶泳、自由泳×100、200、400、1500导致金牌过多,各国纷纷要求增加自己优势项目的金牌数目。

    巴西提出
    足球应该分为3人、5人、7人、11人×沙滩、室内、草地。(newstarnet.com)

    中国提出
    乒乓球应该分为直板、横板、直板双打、直板单打、直板横板混双。

    跳水应该分为1m 2m 3m 4m 5m 6m 7m 8m 9m 10m

    英国提出:
    马术应该分成黑马马术、白马马术、红马马术、褐马马术、皇马马术、斑马马术。

    肯尼亚提出:
    长跑应该分为10000米、11000米、12000米、13000米。。。(newstarnet.com)

    日本提出:
    所有男女混合项目应该增加3p、4p、5p、6p、7p。。。群p。。。500p。

    泰国提出:
    除了男子和女子项目外,所有应该加上人妖组。

    韩国

    看到各国这么多要求,韩国笑了。韩国人说我们没有什么要求,我们只知道:菲尔普斯是我们韩国人!!!
