放洋屁

Pronounced: (learning to say this will not change your life.)
Literally: “releasing foreign farts”
Means: “Imitating Westerners” – an accusation leveled at people back in the day who appeared too enamoured with Western things. It’s used by a character in Iron & Silk (written in 1986), but is no longer in use today, according to one of our Chinese friends here.
