Every Language has its laughing moments

We can examine our Chinese idioms:

People / Mountain / people / sea  etc which has nothing to do with mountains and sea.

Queque long dragon; which has nothing to do with dragon.

By the way, I think the English language has the most borrowed words. Maybe some bright scholar will do some research and let us know which language borrows the most from other countries' languages.

In the meantime have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
