DPic, for what it's worth the print magazine where I typed this from has a website at ... but I tried and couldn't find that article there.

Some more links...

Philipp Lenssen, your mom is calling you to go home to eat!

What, son, is distraught, is not lack of soy sauce, but loneliness!

A more accurate translation for the soy sauce one: "I'm here to buy soy sauce."

thanks for sharing..!!

I think the interesting tidbit is "It was viewed by 390,617 people in the following few hours, and had over 17,000 replies. By the next day, there were 7,100,000 hits, and 300,000 replies."

Does anyone have other stats to compete against that ?? The only 1 that compares was the Stephen Hawking post on Yahoo Q&A, which churned out about 23K answers with 48 hrs!!

Don't forget "Hong Kong Bus Uncle", perhaps the first Chinese Internet Meme (2006)
Video got 1.7M views in first 3 weeks.

I met the guy once at a Sushi bar when I was in Hong Kong. Interesting guy. Was loving his 15 mins. of fame.

Wikipedia has a list of major Internet phenomena, the Chinese portion of which includes "very erotic, very violent". I am heartened by how many Chinese Internet memes ridicule the state media and the filtration of the Internet. It makes me wonder for just how long the current regime can last.
