It really annoys me when somebody corrects my pronunciation of Feng Shooey.
– Oh, it’s pronounced Fung Shway, you know.
– By who? I ask.
– By the Chinese.
– Oh really? And do they spell it Feng Shui?
– Eh, no.
– That’s right, you condescending git. The Chinese don’t write Feng Shui. They write this:
(or something very similar)
Now. go on. Do you see Fung Shway written there?
No. Of course you don’t.
You’re the one who writes it as Feng Shui, not the fucking Chinese, and Feng Shui spells Feng Shooey! Can’t you fucking read? If you mean to say Fung Shway, then write Fung Shway, not Feng Shui.
It’s very simple.
And what’s more, Feng Shooey is a load of fucking bullshit. It’s just the Chinese for tidying up.
