this is a good one:

jiang zemin's asinine 'three represents' theory sounds the same as 'wearing three watches' in chinese.

The best one is He Xie She Hui, which means Harmonious Society in Chinese and is a big government slogan. Nowadays, when people talk about how a dissident has been suppressed or silenced, they say he/she "Bei He Xie Le", which is the past tense passive voice version of He Xie (which means harmonious). In other words, they've "been harmonized".

Okay here's another one.....

A few years back, Beijing stopped allowing the Midi Music Festival to happen. (It's a big festival.)

So, some other guys started the Strawberry Music Festival in a nearby city. Chinese name of the festival is "Cao Mei Yin Yue Hui"

Cao Mei = Strawberry
Yin Yue Hui = Music Festival

but.....

Cao = fark
Mei = No
Yin Yue Hui = Music Festival

So, in effect, we have the "fark!, No Music Festivals" festival
