It is reported that Facebook blamed a technical problem after its Burmese to English translation program translated Chinese President Xi Jinping’s name as Mr S***hole.
It’s known that Winnie Pooh is banned,
In China, right across the land,
Because he looks a bit too much,
Like Xi Jinping in Greek or Dutch.
But maybe Xi should look elsewhere,
Because Facebook, despite its care,
Translated from the Burmese tongue,
The name of Xi and got it wrong.
Not only wrong but it was rude,
So bad that it could get them sued,
And Mr Xi, when he was told,
Was cross and could not be consoled.
Now Chinese miscreants expect,
It’s likely they will be subject,
To beatings or repeat arrest,
And Chinese jails are not the best.
But Facebook lives in cyberspace,
So even when it’s in disgrace,
There’s nothing there to put in jail,
And so the state cannot prevail.
So Mr Xi, who’s doctrinaire,
Can now forget the cuddly bear,
By day and possibly at night,
Till his name gets translated right!
