Zhou Enlai: I’m so close to getting all those fat green pigs!
Mao Zedong: Aim higher. Use the anger of our proletariat birds to undermine the capitalist superstructure.

Chinese are weird. Here you have a group of modern history’s most prolific genocidal murderers and no one thinks its politically offensive even to show them in benign light.
hehe, where is your sense of humor?
And Liu said, I just realized that “fat green pig” (a/k/a “capitalist roader”) is me.
“Spotted on”… why do not write properly the source too?
I believe the point of “spotted on Weibo” is to share with readers images that are being heavily re-posted and circulated on the social media site, thus making the original source hard to distinguish.
that sounds like an excuse to me
That’s like going to Reddit or Tumblr and finding a funny meme or graphic and trying to figure out who created the original content. On Reddit especially “reposts” as they’re called plague the website and few can distinguish between original content and reposts. And with websites such as WeiboScope which features the most circulated images on Weibo, it ranks images by their reposts and does not distinguish their original location. So no, I don’t believe that’s an excuse, instead it’s an epidemic of life in the internet age.

Hehe, I see you couldn’t resist poking fun of your fellow Sichuan compatriot… =)
