“If only, if only, ” the woodpecker sighs
“The bark on the tree was as soft as the skies.”
While the wolf waits below, hungry and lonely,
He cries to the moon “If only, if only.”
that in the Chinese version of Disney’s Mulan, the fake name she gives is “Ping”, but her family name “Fa” in English is “Hua” in Chinese, therefore her full name is “Hua Ping”, which is literally “Flower Vase”, and that’s why Shang is so bewildered because it’s a silly name.
but OP how could you not tell them the best part
“hua ping”/flower vase is chinese slang for “camp gay”
Is the alphabet called the alphabet because the first two letters in the Greek alphabet are alpha and beta?
Are there literally 75,000 people who did not realize this?
Get the fuck off your high horse yes clearly that many people didn’t know that about the fucking Greek alphabet sit down and shut the fuck up
Reblogging this again because although technically right, it’s not right. The Hebrew alphabet (which had heavy influence on/from the Greek one) has the first two letters Aleph and Bet. So the Alphabet is from the Aleph Bet, which became Alpha and Beta in Greek. But Hebrew is older, so it comes from Hebrew.
