Chairman Mal's new Chinese character name - out with the old Sugar Bun, in with the new "Clever Tongue"
Before they knew him, the Chinese bestowed upon Chairman Mal the moniker Sugar Bun.
Wily folk, the Chinese.
We have a crushed linen-besuited, Panama-hat topped, Peking-Duck chomping man in Shanghai.
He tells us that by decree of the People's Committee - Chairman Mal's moniker has been changed to 巧舌如簧, or in English "Clever Tongue".
It sounds like this.
Clever Tongue or 聪明的舌头 translates into English as "glib".
Seems rather fitting.
