How Do You Say “Bird-Brained” In Cantonese?

, , , , , , , | Friendly | March 2, 2018

(I’m in a park in Hong Kong, where they have an aviary with a wide variety of exotic birds, including several species of parrots.)

Parrot: “Hello!”

(I see an older gentleman, presumably a tourist from Mainland China, yelling at this bird.)

Man: “Ni hao ma!”

Parrot: “Hello!”

Man: “Ni hao ma!”

Parrot: “Hello!”

Man: “NI HAO MA!”

Parrot: “Hello!”

Man: “NIIIIIIIIIIII HAOOOOOOO MAAAAAAAAAAA!”

(Good luck trying to teach Mandarin to a bird that can only speak English in a region that primarily speaks Cantonese!)
