1. The Joys Of Mopinatry

    From No Nechevishment Here!, a blog about living in China: "It was most mopinatry. This is our latest Chinglish word, referring to otherwise unremarkable objects, activities - or, indeed, smells - when found in totally incongruous locations, pronounced 'mop-in-a-tree', for self-explanatory reasons. China provides endless opportunities for utilising this word; for example, the very unsubtle array of sex toys and performance-enhancing pills sold alongside the beer, loo roll, snacks and cigarettes at the little family-run shop down the road (the one with the cute little 'hello-thank you-bye bye' girl). This crazy country; we love it really."
