'' he xie'' means harmony in chinese, with the same pronunciation of river crabs in chinese.

so many chinese people use '' river crabs'' when they refer to '' harmony''

just chinese humor

The pronounciation is wrong.

It should be "river shoes", then it's right.

Same as few in your batallion, you know that "fr33dom, demobcrazy and hum@n r1ghts" are three bullsh!t pmototed by your thugs, as a means to freely interfere, even to invade other nations...

So, "river shoes" is more friendly to ears.

Hm...

... northwest, you seem to react to certain words like a vampire to a clove of garlic.  I am a bit surprised.

Then again, you have not applied for an embassy position with the Foreign Ministry.
